This book is a great resource to have. I have been reading many books on the subject of Bible canonization and this is one that's worth the read. The topic of the canon of Scripture is so vast that I highly recommend reading at least a few books on the subject to get a good view of how the Bible was canonized and how we arrived with our modern Bible translation today. This book did a good job of covering the basics and I recommend it as one of the first books to read on the subject. Be sure to get the second edition of this book as many great things have been added and updated from the first edition (second edition is almost twice as long and well worth the extra pages). I would also recommend reading "The Canon of Scripture" by F.F. Bruce and "The Making of The New Testament" by Arthur Patzia.
