“How the New Testament Came to Be” released by BYU Religious Studies Center

The Brigham Young University Religious Studies Center has released a second New Testament volume to coincide with this week’s Sidney B. Sperry Symposium, to be held Oct. 27-28 on campus.

The book is titled “How the New Testament Came to Be” and will join “Sperry Symposium Classics: The New Testament” for use during the symposium. For more information on this year’s Sperry Symposium, visit religion.byu.edu.

The idea for “How the New Testament Came to Be” stemmed from the worldwide questioning of the origin, early history and reliability of the New Testament. The new book focuses on research by scholars from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint who have studied the earliest evidence of the New Testament, primarily using manuscripts.

Topics of discussion include writing in the ancient world, the work of scribes, the development of the New Testament canon and Joseph Smith’s contributions to a Latter-day understanding of the Bible.

The book is available for purchase from the BYU Bookstore and other outlets.

For more information, contact Kent Jackson at (801) 422-3139.
