Baylor-Mohr Siebeck Studies in Early Christianity
Edited by Wayne Coppins and Simon Gathercole


Description: As the inaugural volume in the Baylor-Mohr Siebeck Studies in Early Christianity series, Jens Schröter's celebrated From Jesus to the New Testament is now available for the first time in English. Schröter provides a rich narrative to Christian history by looking back upon the theological forces that created the New Testament canon. Through his textual, historical, and hermeneutical examination of early Christianity, Schröter reveals how various writings that form the New Testament's building blocks are all held together. Jesus not only bound the New Testament, but launched a theological project that resulted in the canon. Schröter's study will undoubtedly spark new discussion about the formation of the canon.
