Canon and inspiration ::

I realise that in the busyness of the last several weeks I have not mentioned Maggi's brilliant series of posts on the authority of the Bible. That's mainly because - expecting a short 4 or 5 post series - I decided to wait till either it was finished, or I was less busy before reading.

But today I gave in, the post on "Inspiration" and the formation of the canon drew me in. There is lots of sensible, down to earth, simple truths, like:
First. Nobody started out with an empty cover with 'Bible' written on it, and try to edit a collection.
Backed up by scholarship lightly worn. I'm teaching in 15 minutes, but I'll follow this up further now that I've started. For now here is the list of posts so far:
Words and the Word
modern views of text in a postmodern church
...continued
...continued
.../continued
John, Paul, George, and Timothy (but not Ringo)
"Inspiration" and the formation of the canon
I plan also to annotate this list with summary comments later...
