Can you prove which books belong in the biblical canon? And who determines canonicity - the historic church, the Scriptures, or something else?


In this book, Dr. Kayser proves the canonicity of each of the 66 books of the Bible using the Bible itself. He defends and demonstrates the Protestant doctrine that “only God can identify His word,” and did so through the very prophets who gave us the Scriptures. The Bible’s self-referential statements are sufficient to completely settle the question of canonicity. There can be no higher authority by which Scripture is judged than itself, or the Scripture would cease to be the highest authority.

But while Protestants hold to this viewpoint theoretically, many are at a loss about how to defend the Protestant canon of 66 books presuppositionally. In this book, Dr. Kayser takes on all competing views of canon presented by Muslims, Mormons, Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, and Liberals. He shows that the church of the first millennium took the same approach to canonization and clearly sided with the Reformation and against the reactionary Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox approaches to canon since the Reformation. And he demonstrates how the presuppositional approach to canonicity is the only adequate approach that will stand up against all criticism.

He also deals with the closing of the canon after Revelation, and why we can know that our 66 books are all that we need (and will have) between now and heaven.
