Whilst this answer best covers the "Why" angle I think riverc's answer best covers the "How", I would split or add more bounty if allowed. Please consider upvoting that answer too. christianity.stackexchange.com/questions/3307/…

I think this answer covers the "How" part of my question. Clearly there must have been a point in the past when there were Christians but no Bible. You make a good explanation of how (and when) the Bible was collected into one "book."

comment Why is the Bible a foundation of theological evidence?
thanks for answer, I think this has helped me understand the "Why" part of my question. Essentially, only the Prophets and, those that actually met Jesus can have had any direct communication with God. Some of this lucky few wrote some useful "texts" on thier communication and what they learnt. Therefore, these "texts" are our most reliable records of the communications of God. I see then, that if we believe the Prophets spoke for God and Jesus was the son of God (and in some cases God too,) Then we must see the "original" Bible as our best reference. It makes me want to learn Greek.

So, its an axiom of Christianity that the Bible is the book of God. This makes sense. Presumably, belief in God without the Bible is Nostisism or some other nomination?
