Give me those Catholic Books! please!!!

First thanks to our little poster who likes to give information. I am intrigued and would like more information. The information thus far seems logical these books can be used in a spiritual sense.

Please, give me a list of the Catholic books that were taken out of the bible.

  • If you're interested you can find lots of info as well on the reasons why they aren't used in the protestant bible, and of course the response to those because some of them are out right lies. I know that Eringobrough has some links to more information on them.

  • I'll bet you can find each of them online too so you don't have to buy a new Bible right away if you have one that doesn't have them in it. I know I'm glad the other question was posted and will be looking them up myself as soon as I get the chance.

  • Catholic bibles also have longer versions of Daniel and Esther


    Personally, I like the book of Wisdom.

  • what happened to the post that explained why these books should be part of the Bible? I can't find it now. Not even in the closed questions. Am I skipping over it?
