THEOLOGY. This volume deals with a significant issue in light of the many and significant discoveries of ancient sacred or religious texts that were not included in the Jewish or Christian Bibles. Because of the focus in the news media in recent years on those "extra-canonical" books that have come to light in the last centuryand even more recently, there is need for clarification of the processes involved in the formation of the Jewish and Christian Bibles.

Part of McDonald's purpose in writing this volume for this series is to encourage laymen and potential scholars to participate in the canon formation discussion (p. 19). He achieves this goal by highlighting several critical issues and aiding in a greater understanding of the differences that exist in the history of interpretation and among contemporary scholars. McDonald's work also serves the purpose of encouraging those who would tell the story of canon formation along different plotlines (and with a setting a few centuries earlier!) to nuance the way they speak about which writings were "canonical" and when they became so.
