Formation of the New Testament Canon - Self Improvement Wednesday with Chris Forbes

Each week Richard Glover on the ABC Radio 702 Drive program has a segment called self-improvement Wednesday - a short interview and discussion with an Academic expert on a specific subject. This week (April 18th) the subject was the formation of the canon of the New Testament with Dr Chris Forbes, a Senior Lecturer in Ancient History and Deputy Chairman of the Society for the Study of Early Christianity at Macquarie University.

This is how the segment was described on the ABC website:
The Da Vinci Code is a hugely popular work of fiction but it's not historically correct. Find out how the books of the New Testament came to be chosen as the Christian canon on SIW today.

An interesting and helpful 10 minute listen. You can listen online or download here or subscribe to the podcast here.

Hope you find it as interesting as I did.
