Off the Shelf 142 – Jimmy Akin

Did you know the Bible is a Catholic book? Some of our Protestant brothers and sisters may not believe that but it’s true. Listen in as Jimmy Akin and I discuss the origins of the Bible and the role the Catholic Church played in bringing it to all Christians today. Check out Jimmy’s book The Bible Is a Catholic Book

From the publisher Catholic Answers Press

In The Bible Is a Catholic Book, Jimmy Akin shows how the Bible cannot exist apart from the Church. In its origins and its formulation, in the truths it contains, in its careful preservation over the centuries and in the prayerful study and elucidation of its mysteries, Scripture is inseparable from Catholicism. This is fitting, since both come from God for our salvation.

If you re a Catholic who sometimes gets intimidated by the Bible, The Bible Is a Catholic Book will help you better understand and take pride in this gift that God gave the world through the Church. We are the original Bible Christians !

And even non-Catholics will appreciate the clear and charitable way that Jimmy explains how the early Church gave us the Bible and how the Church to this day reveres and obeys it.
