Many Protestants call themselves “Bible Christians”—in contrast with Catholics, who ignore the Bible because they have the Church instead.

Too many Catholics have taken this mistaken assumption for granted.

We don’t have to anymore, says Jimmy Akin.

Instead, we should embrace Sacred Scripture—not just as the revealed written word of God but as a thoroughly Catholic work, intimately connected with the Church from the earliest centuries.

In The Bible Is a Catholic Book, Jimmy 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 (especially scriptural challenges from Protestants), 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.

“Jimmy Akin’s love for the Bible and his dedication in defending the Catholic faith are evident in his new book titled The Bible is a Catholic Book. With an abundance of facts from history and traditions, he not only presents the Bible as appealing and accessible, but he also demonstrates that the Teachings of the Catholic Church have Sacred Scripture as their base and that it is the Catholic Church that has preserved this treasure for humanity down through the centuries. My hope is that Mr. Akin’s book will ignite among the faithful a greater love and appreciation for the Bible as a primal source of spiritual nourishment and a sure guide for our daily life.” - Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted, Diocese of Phoenix

“Here is a wonderful history of how God has spoken to us, inspiring both the content and guiding the collection and development of the Sacred Scriptures. Jimmy Akin concisely but thoroughly sets forth the stages of biblical development and history going right back to God's work of creation itself and through the modern period of print and communication. The Bible is indeed a Catholic book. Jimmy beautifully describes the Church’s esteem and love of Sacred Scripture as well as its careful, and costly preservation, along with its authoritative and devoted transmission by the Catholic Church, without which we simply would not have the Bible today. Here is a great introduction to any study of Scripture.”  - Rev. Msgr Charles Pope, Holy Comforter - St Cyprian Parish

    The Bible is a Catholic Book

    Posted by Douglas Harris on Sep 6th 2020

    This is a perfect tool for discussing the faith with Protestants without being combatant. It provides an in-depth discussion on how the Word of God, as originated in its verbal form to a written form, which can be corroborated by Catholics and Protestants from other sources. It then goes further to prove various Catholic teachings, that Protestants do not believe, through the bible itself. I have been giving this book to various Protestants that are open for knowledge of the truth.

    Well organized and presented exposition of the revelation of God in oral and written traditions. Easy to read and understand with resources for further study. I found this to be a welcome addition to my library and will be a resource to read again and share with others in my life.

    I thought it was Pretty Good...the only thing I would have liked to have seen is a stated Bible Acceptance Timeline perhaps as an appendix.

    Excited to read it all, and looking for more people willing to read it as well. I have so many protestants in my life. They are wry of me and my faith.
