New Testament Canon - Why these 27 books?

Our modern bible contains 27 books in what we call the New Testament. Why 27? Why not 30, or 10 books?

Out of the hundreds of other documents that were written in the 1st century about Jesus Christ, who determined that it would be these particular 27 books?

Critics today claim that the stories about Christ were invented, made up by people and embellished over hundreds of years. However, an honest and detailed look at the historical facts not only prove these critics wrong, but show us exactly how we ended up with the 27 books in the New Testament. It is not miraculous, and it didn't happen just by chance either.
