The Formation of the New Testament: Your No-Nonsense Guide to Understanding Its Authenticity and Credibility
By: Chuck Gianotti
The Christian faith rises or falls on the historical credibility of the Bible, particularly the New Testament documents. In today’s post-modern culture, Christians and those searching for answers face numerous questions including:
*Are the New Testament writings historically reliable?
*How do we know those books are authoritative?
*Who decided which documents to include?
*What about the apocryphal or deutero-canonical writings?
*Can we know for certain that the Bible is accurate and complete?
This book reduces the large volume of available (yet very technical) information on the subject by providing a concise analysis of the facts to help you gain confidence in the credibility of the New Testament canon.
