Robert Millet gave an interesting lecture on the Biblical Canon. It can be found here: http://byubmp3.byu.edu/sperry/2006/millet.mp3
I appreciate Professor Millet’s acknowledgement of those throughout Christian history that fought for the preservation and translation of the Bible. Christian history is Mormon history in this regard.
At the end of his presentation Prof. Millet ask why do we (Evangelicals) believe the canon is now closed. What justification do we have for shutting out new revelation that may come from God? I think I can actually concede to him that perhaps the canon is not closed. I’m open to the idea. But I think that any new works have to pass the same requirements of authenticity and authority that the books currently in the Bible did.
An interesting lecture for anyone who is interested.
