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

    This was one of the most informative books on Catholic history. It explained, in context how the Bible came together. I thought is was so good, I bought a box full and gave them away. I think it is the one book for teenagers to read so they know the truth.

    Jimmy Akin clearly lays out the history of the old and new testaments in the development of the bible in the Catholic church and changes made during the reformation, which evolved into something new & different than the bible's origin & intent. Good read & easy to understand!

    Jimmy Akin does a good job covering this subject. Too bad that so many refuse to look at facts regarding the Bible. All Protestants should read this book for sure with an open mind.

    James Akin Does It Again

    Posted by Edward Lucas on Nov 14th 2019

    As soon as this book became available I purchased a box of 20 for my RCIA candidates and catechumens. We were discussing Divine Revelation, so the timing of this book's availability could not have been any better. I read my copy in one sitting, and I received very favorable feedback from the other readers. We have a small parish, and I am considering by enough so each family will have a copy. I need to find out if a Spanish version is also available.

    The Bible is a Catholic book. I hav been saying this for years and now say there is NO reason why there is a Catholic Bible and a Protestant Bible. We should (all Christians) should have the same bible as the early church did

    Great book I am sure I will order one for everyone in the Bible Study group
