Only in the case of the Bible, written down by human scribes, but authored by God, do we have a completed volume. In fact, Jesus went so far in the book of Revelation to warn people through St. John not to take away any doctrines or add any new ones, lest they incur the Just Wrath of God. From the formation of the old universe to its demolition and its replacement by a new universe, and all points in between, from the first verse of Genesis to the last verse of Revelation, we have all we need. Commentaries and lessons? Fine, so long as they all follow the guide-line of the Biblical text. But we need no more from any other faith, or from any people calling themselves Christians who claim to have fresh, new revelation to be added to the Bible's texts. God went so far as to give another warning through St. Paul: if another, even the highest ranking angel from God, should come proclaiming a different Gospel about a different type of Jesus and the Salvation He brought, let such an one be counted as damned (anathema). We need nothing else. The text is closed.

The structure of the Holy Bible as the literature is absolutely interesting from the beginning to the end and ALSO how it views the BC world and how it affected the AD world. The Holy Bible is vital spiritually and guides us to the salvation, but it also is a real vital food for the human heart, mind, will and brain as well. The Holy Spirit works through the Word and those who know the Word possess the Finest of the universe, even in practical sense. We've seen it in the history and in the current world.

Amen. Any other "holy books" or "additional" books either contradict with the Holy Bible or not-worth reading. Jesus Himself acknowledged the Old Testament Bible we have today as the perfect Word of God( read Mathew ch.5), and the New Testament Bible was written by His eye-witnesses and their direct associates with clear seamless coherence as if one Person has written it all. Taking 1,600 years( with a 400-year break) and through more than 40 individuals in 3 different languages and continents, the Author has been the same; the one true God.

We saw the Biblical Canon being closed by both solid internal and external evidences. There isn't any writing equal to the Old and the New Testament text produced anyway, though mankind became so much cleverer and far more knowledgeable from 2,000 years ago!
