The Making of the New Testament Canon

The History of the Bible, lectures by Bart D. Ehrman
from archive.org

The New Testament stands unchallenged, in the words of Professor Bart D. Ehrman, not only as the bestseller of all time, but also as the most important book - or collection of books - in the history of Western civilization.
Yet how many of us, Christian or otherwise, are as knowledgeable about the New Testament as we would like to be? Even many who consider themselves Christian find themselves asking some - perhaps even all - of the questions so often posed by those who are not.
What different kinds of books are in the New Testament? When, how, and why were they written? What do they teach? Who actually wrote them? How were they passed forward through history? And, perhaps most important of all, why and how did some books, and not others, come to be collected into what Christians came to consider the canon of Scripture that would define their belief for all time?
In The History of the Bible: The Making of the New Testament Canon, Professor Ehrman offers a fast-moving yet thorough introduction to these and other key issues in the development of Christianity.
