The twenty-seven books of our present New Testament were not the only source materials available to the early Christian church. So, what happened to the rest? Lee Martin McDonald joins us for a fascinating conversation about the “forgotten” books that helped shape early Christianity. He is the author of Forgotten Scriptures: The Selection and Rejection of Early Religious Writings, now available from WJK.
Lee Martin McDonald is President Emeritus and Professor of New Testament Studies Emeritus at Acadia Divinity College in Wolfville, Nova Scotia. He writes extensively on canon formation.
