Dr. Ligon Duncan shares two of Dr. Michael Kruger’s books on the canon of Scripture: The Question of Canon and Canon Revisited. These books help pastors and students to have increased confidence in the authority of Scripture.
Hello, I’m Ligon Duncan, and this is RTS Book Notes. Today, I want to tell you about two books on the issue of the canon of Scripture by Dr. Michael Kruger, who is President and Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte. The first book is called The Question of Canon. It’s published by our friends at IVP Academic. And in that book, he challenges the status quo interpretations of the origins of the New Testament canon.
The second book is called Canon Revisited and it’s published by our friends at Crossway. Dr. Kruger makes the case for the origin and authority of the books of the New Testament. He’s really a leading scholar in this area. When I was in seminary, you had to read F.F. Bruce on the canon and now you have to read Mike Kruger. It’s one of the ways that RTS tries to help pastors and students have confidence in the authority of the text of Scripture. Thanks so much for listening to RTS Book Notes.
