      Dear List Members:

      It would be an interesting study for someone to determine the genealogy of
      some
      of the closely related discussion groups that include Syoptic-L, Crosstalk,
      Kata Markon, Johannine-Literature, and the very recent Biblical-Studies.
      To be
      certain Jim West’s biblical-discussion group is the "academic father" of the
      list being announced here. If it weren’t for Jim’s example, I might never
      have
      summoned the courage to emark on this.

      The Canonical Criticism Discussion List is intended as a forum for the
      academic
      discussion of the "canonical shape" of documents that comprise the Old and New
      Testaments. It is intended to be an opportunity for interested people to post
      observations and questions regarding the entire spectrum of meaning,
      implications behind, consequences of, and theology associated with the
      canonical form of scripture. By "canonical form" of scripture is meant the
      evolved or extant versions of NT and OT texts sensu Brevard S. Childs, and
      assumes that the documents comprising scripture arrived at their canonical
      form
      under divine guidance.

      Academic and non-academic questions will be allowed. Everyone may
      participate:
      Scholars, clergy, interested by-standers, Christians and non-Christians alike.

      Inappropriate posts, personal confessions, abrasive comments, and spam of any
      sort will not be tolerated. Those who don't understand this limitation will
      soon find themselves removed from the list.
