— We welcome back Dr. Sheila McGinn, Professor of Biblical Studies and Early Christianity, John Carroll University, who will present The Development of the Canon of the Bible.

In a two-part presentation October 12 & 19, Dr. McGinn will help us understand the formation of the canon of the Bible (the list of books considered to be authoritative) in the context of the early church at the time decisions were being made about which books to include. We’ll learn about the different schools of thought regarding the canon and about the books that were not included. Please join us!
