Classic Texts on the (New Testament) Canon

Though some of the texts below cover the canons of both testaments, my primary concern is with the canon of the New Testament.  For that matter, my concern for New Testament canon is only because it is a proxy for apostolic origin of the 27 books.

Bruce, F. F. The Canon of Scripture.  Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity, 1988.

Harris, R. Laird.  Inspiration and Canonicity of the Bible.  Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 1978.

Kruger, Michael J.  Canon Revisited: Establishing the Origins and Authority of the New Testament Books.  Wheaton, IL:  Crossway, 2012.

Metzger, Bruce M.  The Canon of the New Testament: Its Origin, Development, and Significance.  Oxford: Clarendon, 1987.
