Canon has to do with the authoritative shape in which Scripture has been received by the Church, and which must be taken seriously if it is to be read aright by people of faith. This book focuses on the central notion of canon in contemporary biblical studies, and illumines it from a number of different perspectives: historical, theoretical, and exegetical. A particularly valuable feature of the volume is its interaction with the work of Brevard Childs, the pioneer of the canonical approach, and its focus on the fruitfulness of a canonical reading for a broad range of biblical material.
'This collection clarifies the nature of a canonical approach, explores its interpretative potential and exposes common misunderstandings. It should be a landmark in the debate.' Professor Walter Moberly, University of Durham
