New on Ebon Musings: The Origins of Orthodoxy

Over the past several months, I’ve been writing a lengthy new essay for Ebon Musings. I’ve finally put the finishing touches on it, and I’m quite proud of the result: go check out “The Origins of Orthodoxy“.

This essay covers a topic I’ve been interested in for a long time: the origins of the Christian New Testament canon. It’s the story of which books made it into the Bible – and which ones didn’t – and why, and all the historical twists and turns over the first three centuries that resulted in the canon as Christians have it today. I did this research because this is something that I personally wanted to know more about, but of course, I’m happy to share the end result for the use and benefit of other freethinkers.

This is an open thread. Any comments or criticisms?
