Have you ever noticed that some Bibles have the words "with Apocrypha" written on their spines? In the Revised Standard Version of the Holy Bible, these words refer to nineteen books or parts of books placed after Malachi and before the Gospel of Matthew. How did these books come to be placed in the middle of the Bible, and what value, if any, do they have? If you examine The New American Bible used by Roman Catholics, you will find that this Bible has no such middle section. Why? How then do Christians regard these books, and do they read them?

These are some of the questions that we will consider in the first session. The second session looks specifically at the book of Tobit and examines arguments for and against its inclusion in the Bible.
