What other books have not been included in the Bible?
While browsing through the internet I always come across article heading with "Hidden bible books" that were not included in the bible, some of the books were were not included because they were written by women. I guess with this post I`m trying to ascertain whether that is the truth or not, I also saw something like that while reading "Manuscript Found In Accra" by Paulo Coehlo on the introduction or foreword of the book.
Are there books that were hidden and not included in the bible?
and if that`s the truth, Why were they not included? apparently there 16 hidden bible books.
I know where you are headed, but there is no answer. Even though other books of religious significance may exist, no books can be added to the Bible. If they were it would then be the 2015 Revised Bible or the Bible according to xyz, and so on. Already, the generally accepted King James Version is different that the Catholic Bible. The Catholic Bible has seven additional Old Testament Books. Both Bibles have the same New Testament Books. The translations do differ. However, there are many other versions of the bible, such as the New American Bible, where the translation.
However, no one is adding books to the Bible. Thus the Bible should be looked upon as complete. Any other books may have some significant meaning but could never be part of the Bible. To be added, the volume would need a new name, thus leaving the Bible intact. I am certain this is not the direction you were headed, but the Bible is what it is as developed generations ago. Thus, we can add, but it becomes a new bible or different bible and not The Bible.
I do get your point here. Thank you. Could it be that they were not added because they are about the same message?
That is a possibility. I am certainly not a bibical scholar, just a believer. So the other books people are always taking about could indeed be repetitious of other books, or lacked a certain amount of clarity that might have been missing.

It is quite obvious that Catholics do not follow many things in the Bible. They look at the Church as the one that sets all standards. Why is it so?
