A New New Testament

The process of canonization of the biblical text or the Bible that we have now, is long and complex.

Most people think that the 66 books that comprise the Bible have been set in stone and that they are a settled (and eternal) issue, but it really depends in most part what Christian tradition or denomination you’re affiliated with.

I can only imagine how (radically) different Christianity would have been like if such books were included and other current ones, like the Book of Revelation, had been omitted.

Very interesting article about a new book coming out soon.

The Rev. Hal Taussig at Chestnut Hill United Church, where he is co-pastor. His book, due out this week, raises deep questions about the early years of Christianity.
