Protestants and Catholics alike share the faith that all scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, and training in righteousness (2Tim 3:16).
But one area where they disagree is over just which writings make up the Bible.In particular they differ over whether the seven books of the Old Testament sometimes called “deuterocanonical” are inspired scripture or not.
In a previous book, Why Catholic Bibles Are Bigger, Gary Michuta addressed the historical question of whether Protestants removed these books from the Bible or Catholics added them.
Now in The Case for the Deuterocanon: Evidence and Arguments he takes on the burden of showing that they should not have been removed. Bringing together evidence from the New Testament as well as Jewish and early Christian history, he carefully builds a compelling cumulative argument that the disputed books are part of the Bible that Jesus and His Apostles handed on to the Church. They are Scripture in the fullest sense, divinely inspired and capable of confirming Christian doctrine.
