Canonical Holy Scripture

Let “canonical Holy Scripture” be used to designate the collection of the very same texts (the Christian Bible) when they are explicitly acknowledged (Christian Holy Scripture) by certain communities of Christian faith to be a determinate set of texts whose employment by the community in many practices that constitute their common life is the medium in, through, and under which God to call the community into being; nurture and sustain it; and, when necessary correct and form the ways they seek in their common life to respond appropriately to God’s ways od relating to them.

David Kesley, Eccentric Existence, 148.
