The Cordial Catholic Podcast – 027: How to Read and Understand the Bible like a Catholic October 2, 2019


In this episode of The Cordial Catholic Podcast I’m joined by Catholic Answers Senior Apologist Jimmy Akin to talk about the Bible.

Where did the Bible come from? How did it get put together? What is the role of oral tradition and why are Catholic Bibles bigger?

We also dig into problems with the Protestant doctrine of Sola Scripture and how Catholics read and understand the Bible in a different way.

For more about Jimmy visit his website. Also see Catholic Answers. And, buy Jimmy Akin’s new book The Bible is a Catholic Book. Or keep reading the show notes for how you can get a free copy!
