Congratulations to Prof. Chris Seitz on the publication of The Goodly Fellowship of the Prophets: the Achievement of Association in Canon Formation (Baker, 2009).
Just below the surface of any Christian view of the Bible is the knotty issue of the biblical canon. How and when was it decided which books make up the Bible? What makes a book canonical? In this volume, Christopher Seitz helps readers understand how the Old Testament fits into the canon's development. Brief and readable yet substantive, this volume challenges current understandings of the formation of the Christian canon, utilizing the latest research on the biblical prophets. Seitz reveals canonical connections woven into the fabric of the Prophetic Books and argues that the Law and the Prophets cohere and give shape to the subsequent Christian canon.
The book may be ordered through CRUX Books at Wycliffe College.
