Canons in Conflict : Negotiating Texts in True and False Prophecy
Brenneman confronts the contemporary issue of conflicting canons, incorporating insights gained from both literary and biblical disciplines. He begins with a tour through current literary theory and theological discussions. He then applies these theories to a consideration of true and false biblical prophecy to reach an integrative resolution of authority and canon in a pluralistic context.

An extremely well-done piece of work....He makes a real contribution through his clarity about the relationship between literary theory and canon criticism, as well as how those issues are related to true and false prophecy. Moreover, his willingness to take on what might be one of the hardest cases-that of the plowshare text-is exemplary for its candor as well as how he provides an example of such readings. * Stanley Hauerwas, Duke University *
