I answered this to some extent (I think) in my post to po18guy.
The thing about the Apocrypha/Deutercanonical books is that they've long been debated. So, I take the view of the Anglican Articles of Religion, which states:
"The Church doth read for example of life and instruction of manners, but yet doth not apply them to establish any doctrine."
Are their doctrines established from these books? I honestly don't know, and that's probably a topic for another thread.
