The Making of the New Testament is essential reading for anyone seriously interested in the current state of Orthodox biblical studies. Scholarly but readable, balanced but passionately argued, the book explores the organic interdependence of the nascent Church and the writings that would become our New Testament an interdependence based on and expressive of the apostolic gospel in all its fullness.
-Rev. Dr. John Erickson
Peter N. Gramowich Professor of Church History, Emeritus,
and former Dean of St. Vladimir Orthodox Theological Seminary
