I have just started to read through the Apocrypha. For those who are unaware, the Apocrypha is a group of books included in Catholic Bibles, but not in the 66 books of the Protestant Bible.
I have to admit that I have never read the Apocryphal books in their entirety, which is why I have decided to read them now. I wonder what your opinion of the Apocrypha is. Should Protestants read them, even if we do not think of them as authoritative (since we do not view them as Scripture)? What is the need / value in reading them?
If you say that Protestants should read them, have you ever read them? Take a second to answer the poll at the top right of this page concerning whether or not you have ever read the Apocrypha.
