Making of Canon

I am wrapping up a Sunday School class where we have surveyed the New
Testament, with emphasis on literary and historical source issues in
different NT books. This is off topic, but our last session will be on how
these books made it, what are some that didn't--basically, canonicity. I
have not found a resource I am completely please with, though I do like the
final chapter in Barr's _New Testament Story_.

Do any of you prof-types have a lecture on canon issues you could email me?
I would especially love early church canon lists. Being a pastor in rural
West Texas cuts me off from a good library. There a good web resource,
perhaps? Please send offlist by: .

Thanks for this indulgence,
