Includes the books of I & II Esdras, Tobit, Judith, Additions to Esther, Wisdom of Solomon, Sirach, Baruch, Letter of Jeremiah, Song of Three Youths, Susanna, Bel and the Dragon, Prayer of Manasseh, and I & II Maccabees.
One of the most discussed, argued about, learned from and about, and most loved book written in so many languages it boggles the mind. I am slowly (very slowly) making my way through this blessed book for my second time. The first? Well, I had to read it. Catholic school. Irish Catholic parents, FEAR of disappointment, the nuns, my parents, my friends, etc.
Today, it's for me, and The Father who never gave up on me. Don't give up, try one more, it's very worth it!!!
