The Catholic Bible includes additional books in the Old Testament not included in most Protestant Bibles. These seven additional books of the Old Testament are known as the deuterocanonical books and include Sirach, Tobit, Wisdom, Judith, 1 and 1 Maccabees, and Baruch. The Apocrypha includes 15 books, all but one of which are Jewish in origin and found in the Septuagint (parts of 2 Esdras are possibly Christian and Latin in origin). Influenced by the Jewish canon of the OT, the custom arose of making the Apocrypha a separate section in the Protestant Bible, or sometimes even of omitting them entirely. The Catholic view, expressed as a doctrine of faith at the Council of Trent, is that 12 of these 15 works (in a different enumeration, however) are canonical Scripture; they are called the Deuterocanonical Books. The three books of the Protestant Apocrypha that are not accepted by Catholics are 1-2 Esdras and the Prayer of Manasseh.
There are several popular Roman Catholic Bible translations available today. The Common English Bible w/ Apocrypha (CEBA) is one of the more popular translations of the English Roman Catholic Bible. Other popular translations include the Revised Standard Version – Catholic Edition (RSVA), The New Revised Standard Version – Catholic Edition (NRSA), the Good News Translation with Apocrypha (GNTA), The Latin Vulgate with Apocrypha (VULA), and the Douay-Rheims.”
