Catholics Books on the Canon


#1

Hi all, I was wondering if you guys could recommend me any books from a Catholic perspective regarding the canon of Scripture. In particular one which has a discussion about the deuterocanonical books and their status as part of the canon. Other related books are welcome as well. Merry Christmas and happy New Years!

Still the best apologetic book of the 21st century, in my humble opinion!

Not a book, but I like these two blog posts on why each book in the Deuterocanon is divinely inspired and belongs in the Bible, including cross-references with other works that are accepted by all as divinely inspired:

Not Catholic but I like Bruce Metzger's "The Canon of the New Testament". Plain common sense backed up by an excellent scholar. Obviously doesn't discuss the deutrocanonical books tho'.
