Your e-mail comes at an opportune time. I was just reading an article in
the "Canada Lutheran" (July/Aug 2001 issue) entitled "No Lutheran Bible"
where the author claims that the "Lutherans possess no binding list or guide
as to what books are among 'the scriptures of the Old and New Testament.'"
The article also contains the claim that "Saint Augustine ... recognized
that there was a divergence among Christians as to what books are
Now we can't have it both ways. If, as you suggest, the supernatural
structure of the 66 books is a clear indication that there's "something to
it," where does this leave those branches of Christianity that don't accept
the 66 books?
Maybe George Murphy could comment on the validity of the contents of the
article in the Canada Lutheran?

I am writing to bring to your attention a site which complements my own.
Richard McGough describes his 'The Bible Wheel' as "...a simple
geometric view of the Holy Bible. It reveals the supernatural structure
of the Christian Canon by displaying the intrinsic geometric integration
of the sixty-six books amongst themselves and with the twenty-two
letters of the Hebrew alphabet." The material is well-researched and
presented, and worth looking at. Here is the URL:
PS A little contribution of my own supports Richard's thesis. It may be
