How would these books be recognized as being divinely inspired and inerrant?
They would be recognized by some, and rejected by others, and then you'd have two different religions when before there were one.
Christianity added on to the Jewish texts, and then you had Jews and Christians. Islam took some Christian texsts and added its own stuff, and then there were three. Mormons added the book of Mormon to the Bible, and then there were Jews, Christians, Mormons and Muslims.
Every single one of them says that they're the "right" religion.
