How did we arrive at the collection of 66 books of the Bible that we now have and consider canon? Can we trust that those books belong legitimately among all the others? What does it mean for Scripture to be inspired? What did believers do before they had a canon? What are some books that were almost canonized, and why were they not? Questions like these and many more will be explored in detail in this richly theological and historical course. Dr. Michael Knight is an expert Christian apologist, archeological researcher, and student of the Word. Join ISOW and Dr. Knight on a journey through church history and nuanced doctrine to study and show yourself approved.
