The Apocrypha, Directors Cut of The Bible

Do your non-Catholic friends tease you about your Bible?  Does it have too many books?  Have you tried using other versions of the Bible and felt like something was missing?  Do you wonder how the Bible was put together?

 

Then you should check out this podcast from Br. Luke and Br. Jude about the apocrypha, the hidden books of the Bible.  The brothers break things down so you don't have to feel self conscious anymore, and you might even appreciate how lucky some of the books of the Bible were to be included in the official canon.
