Several books of the bible are missing because the priest in that time felt the did not follow the order of what they wanted the bible to be. If we are to believe everything in the bible is true and from God are we to believe what is missing his also true?
The book of Enoch
The book of Jubilees (little genesis)
The apolcalypus of Peter (almost was put in the bible instead of the revelations of John)
The gospel according to Mary
The book of Thomas
The gospel of Nicodemus

There is a ton of ancient writings -- just because something was ancient doesn't mean it was inspired by God. So how can anyone claim books are "missing" when Jesus never left us with a list of what should or should not be included?
That being said - researching how the Bible came to be is very interesting (and personally part of the reason I've chosen to follow the Catholic faith). But make sure you check reliable sources when investigating -- not everything you find on the Internet is true. For example, the First Council of Nicea didn't discuss which books to include in the Bible. So it's historically inaccurate to say they left books out.
