Why Twenty Seven?: How Can We Be Sure That We Have the Right Books in the New Testament?By: Brian H. Edwards
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? Brian Edwards skilfully 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. - Publisher.
