Compare the Bible you might find tucked in a hotel room dresser drawer versus a Catholic study Bible and you’re bound to notice a few differences. Besides the many variances in translation from version to version, a Catholic Bible simply is bigger…seven books bigger in fact!
Why are there seven more books in the Catholic Bible? Who cut them out? Where did they go?
On Episode 98 of The Catholic Mama podcast, I got to chat with Gary Michuta, the author of the book Why Catholic Bibles Are Bigger: The Untold Story of the Lost Books of the Protestant Bible, on this very subject. The answers to the above questions may just surprise you.
And be sure to connect to Gary on his website GaryMichuta.com, grab a copy of one of his books, and hear him each weekday on his show Hands On Apologetics on Virgin Most Powerful Radio (don’t miss my episode on his show about the moral dangers of being spiritual but not religious!)
