Item Description...
"Not by Paul Alone" explores the historical reasons for the creation of the book of James and the implications for the creation of the Christian canon. Nienhuis makes a compelling case that James was written in the mid-second century and is, like 2 Peter, an attempt to provide a distinctive shape to the emerging New Testament. This book bolsters the claim that the Catholic Epistles not only have a distinct witness individually, but that collectively they are also a considered theological agenda within the Christian church.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Fresh thinking on the Canon and the Letter of James  Jun 14, 2007
I had been taught, or at least assumed, that the composition of New Testament books and their collection as a 'canon' were distinct processes. That is, the books were written, each in its own context...and at a later stage, they were collected and canonized, some writings being selected, others rejected.

David Nienhuis rejects this simplistic notion and develops the idea that the composition of certain books was itself part the canonization of the scriptures. That is, certain books were consciously written as a response to existing writings, with the aim of shaping the eventual collection. Though this idea is not original with Nienhuis, he applies it to the letter of James and the final shape of the New Testament. Rather than being an early letter added later to the canon, Nienhuis presents evidence that James is a late work, crafted to shape a Christian Bible "not by Paul alone."

I am not qualified to evaluate much of Nienhuis' scholarly evidence, but I find his argument compelling and his writing engaging.

One extraordinary aspect of the book is the Introduction. Nienhuis does not just introduce the topic, nor merely outline what he will do in subsequent chapters. He actually accomplishes in brief what he will later demonstrate in detail, offering an Introduction of real substance.
