Volume 1 of The Cambridge History of the Bible concerns the earliest period down to Jerome and takes as its central theme the process by which the books of both Testaments came into being and emerged as a canon of scripture, and the use of canonical writings in the early church.

Industry Reviews

'This volume is a distinguished achievement. Its scholarship is sound and up to date. Nowhere else, it is safe to say, will a reader find so comprehensive and informed an account of the wide field it covers.' Times Literary Supplement 'Once again the editors, publishers and contributors have produced a magnificent volume well worthy to stand alongside its two predecessors ... Judged by any standaed, the History is a landmark in Bible scholarship.' The Evangelical Quarterly 'Professors Ackroyd and Evans have assembled an exceptionally distinguished team for this volume, and the resultant composition is as instructive as it is readable ... Altogether this is an excellent work.' Bulletin of the SOAS 'An indispensable work of reference both for historical theology and for the history of biblical scholarship.' Expository Times
