For him the canon is a christological rule of faith, though perceiving the family resemblance in its historic formation and impress in the life of the church as well as, mysteriously, the synagogue, is always a great struggle. Yet Childs argument for final form exegesis rose out of his form-critical training: Hermann Gunkel is a crucial antecedent. Childs work has been much discussed, and in the wake of James Barrs criticism much misunderstood. Driver gives its total profile for the first time, from its background and controversy to its later development, analyzing all published titles and filling out this record with a number of previously unseen letters and papers.
