Show Notes

In this episode of The Cordial Catholic Podcast I talk with author Rod Bennett about the origins of the Bible.

We dig deep – way deep – into the history of the Biblical canon. Why are some books in Catholic Bibles and not in those read by Protestants? How did those decisions get made? What role did the Early Church and the Pope play in these important decisions. 

We also wrestle with the question of Tradition vs. Scripture and if Catholics believe things which aren't in the Bible.
