I recently came across a book of the Bible called Esdras. It was in a Catholic Bible that a friend had. I never saw or heard of this book before. Is it accepted by the Catholic Church and why is that book not in my Catholic Bible. I have had a number of versions over the years (Jerusalem, New Jerusalem, New American Bible etc.,) Also I don’t recall hearing any readings in church from that book.
Thank you and God bless you for your good work
