What determines canonicity or that a particular book is considered scriptural. How do we decide which books belong in the Bible since the Bible doesn't tell us. What is the preservation of the Bible.

Is the doctrine of preservation biblical. In what way is the Bible self-authenticating. How is self-authentication different from circular reasoning. There are two different approaches that are taken when it comes to arguing for the Bible being the Word of God.
