Here’s how Bill starts:
There is a misconception, popularized by books like The Da Vinci Code, that the way the books of the Bible were chosen consisted of politically infused church councils voting on the books they liked, and voting out the books they didn’t like. However, a careful reading of church history totally disproves this misconception.
The first criterion Bill mentions, which he takes from Geisler and Nix, (Did the book come from a man of God?) is really all that matters, because the other criteria flow naturally from it.
