… like Augustine, we do not disparage the value of the witness of the people of God to the canon. We value the ministry of the church in this as in all things. But we deny that the church in its offices or councils authoritatively establishes the scripture on the basis of some knowledge or power not available to Christians generally. (p. 21)
