Why do Catholic Bibles have more books in their Old Testaments than Protestant and Jewish Bibles? Did the Catholic Church add books to Scripture, or did Protestants remove them? What was the Bible of the earliest Christians?
In this fascinating book, Gary Michuta traces the path of the Deuterocanon (called by Protestants the “Apocrypha”) from its pre-Christian roots through the Protestant Reformation to the nineteenth century. Many commonly held myths are exposed while uncovering little-known and surprising facts about these “lost books” of the Protestant Bible.
