This section is provided as a collection of introductions on the books of the Bible as accepted by Catholics, though this work itself is the result of both Catholic and Protestant Scholars. This is not a discussion about the Canon of scripture, rather a summary of each book within the Bible. Links from within this particular section take you to the online NAB Bible translation, from whence these documents originally come. Though these introductions and summaries are accurate, useful, and assembled by both Catholic and Protestant scholars, the NAB translation of scripture is not recommended by Apostolic Apologetics, rather is the RSV CE or Douay-Rheims. Used for scholarly research under United States "Fair Use" copyright law section 107.
