Description:

The standard theory of Old Testament canon formation describes a literary process of linear development in three successive stages. In spite of intermittent criticism, the theory has continued to find its place in textbooks and introductions. Here Stephen B. Chapman marshals all of the important counter-arguments to the theory and proposes a fresh way to conceive of the canonical process, based upon evidence internal and external to the biblical text.He argues against the standard theory by exposing its internal inconsistencies and critiquing its methodological presuppositions, especially its assumptions about human agency and the nature of ?canonization.? Using Charles Altieri's literary application of Canadian philosopher Charles Taylor's theory of the self, the author redescribes the canonization of the Old Testament as a process of ?strong evaluation?, the goal of which was to provide a religious framework for the evaluation of personal and communal alternatives, rather than the imposition of ideology. He redefines the Old Testament ?canon? as the theological ?grammar? formed by the coordination of discrete scriptures into a coherent collection but retaining their plurality as integral to canonicity.Stephen B. Chapman also demonstrates that the status of the prophetic writings prior to their canonization has remained an intractable problem for the standard theory. He shows how nomistic assumptions about canonization have sustained the view that the prophetic corpus was always subordinate to the Pentateuch, even though this view is at odds with the exegetical evidence. By detailed analysis of ?canon-conscious? editing within the Pentateuch and the prophetic corpus, he illustrates how collections of Law and Prophets developed simultaneously and mutually influenced each other.

Synopsis: This publication is recommended to everyone interested in the notion of canon and every scholar who wrestles with the history of canon formation. Chapman's theory will have to be reckoned with in all future research of the Old Testament canon.P.M. Venter in Hervormde Theologise Studies 58/4 (2002), pgs. 1874-1875This is a fine study on the intriguing question of the biblical canon. Chapman offers an alternative model of the origin of Law and prophets [a] The book contains a lot of food for thought; maybe the interpretative model of a theological grammar will allow us to view the plurality of biblical texts in a different light. No serious future study can afford to overlook Chapman's insights.Anselm C. Hagedorn in The Journal of Religion vol. 83/1, pgs. 617-618This is an important, and readable book. It shows that both the law and the prophets are authoritative Scripture which are aware of and play off each other. It is not a case of Torah priority or of the prophets being before and the source of the law, as some critics hold. This book should be in all academic theological libraries.David W. Baker in Ashland Theological Journal 34 (2002), pgs. 99-100
