Letters from the Pillar Apostles
The Formation of the Catholic Epistles as a Canonical Collection
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Too often the Catholic apostles are slighted in NT scholarship. Lockett, who is deeply conversant with the scholarly literature on these Epistles, considers the canonical shaping of these Epistles. . . . Lockett rightly shows that the canonical shaping of these Epistles invites a canonical reading, and such a reading is enriching from both a literary and a theological perspective."
--Thomas R. Schreiner, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
"Darian Lockett has written a fascinating study of the Catholic Epistles from the canon critical point of view. I cannot think of anyone who could do that better than he. The result is clear, complete, and compelling."
--Peter H. Davids, Our Lady of Walsingham Catholic Church, Houston
"In this important monograph, Darian Lockett illuminates the case for canonical interpretation on several fronts: by proposing a promising approach to thinking through the idea of canon; by articulating a case for treating the Catholic Epistles as a distinct, early letter collection; and by highlighting fascinating connections among the letters themselves."
--A. K. M. Adam, University of Oxford
"Darian Lockett opens new insights from his fascinating, fresh reading of the Catholic Epistles as a corpus."
--Karl-Wilhelm Niebuhr, Friedrich Schiller University Jena
