The canonization of the New Testament

I've been reading about the canonisation process of the books of the New Testament. It's an interesting story. See The Development of the Canon of the New Testament and The Formation of the New Testament Canon.
While reading the latter, I browsed onto Of Love, Brunettes, and Biology which contains a nice quote:
...wherein a five-minute sex scene is considered the most efficient way to communicate to the audience that the main characters are now in love (Jane Austen would be appalled).
