Details

Following the release of The Da Vinci Code book and film and the “discovery” of the Gospel of Judas, the age-old debate surrounding the authenticity of the books of the New Testament is raging yet again.

So why are there just twenty-seven books, and why were those particular twenty-seven chosen?

Author Brian Edwards skillfully answers these questions, asserting that the inclusion of these books was never really in doubt. When the history, age, and content of the manuscripts are looked at fairly and objectively the evidence is overwhelming, which is why, despite centuries of examination and criticism, the canon of the New Testament still stands unscathed.
