The standard theory of the Old Testament canon formulation describes a literary process of linear development in three successive stages. In spite of intermittent criticism, the theory has continued to find its place in textbooks and introductions. Here the authors marshals all the important counter-arguments to the theory and proposes a fresh look at the canonical process.
