To tell if a
translation of Holy Scripture is Catholic, try examining who translated it. Look
to see if there is an imprimatur (use special care with those issued in the
1960's and later). Look to see if it is missing books that Protestants reject
(or if they are relegated to the back or between the Old & New Testaments or are
otherwise segregated – e.g. the books of Tobias, Judith, Wisdom, Ecclesiasticus,
Baruch, 1 and 2 Machabees). If all else fails, consider some key Catholic
passages that a Protestant 'bible' is likely to attempt to contradict or gloss
over (e.g. regarding the Papacy, Mary, necessity of works, etc.). Do not
purchase a translation of Scripture unless you are certain that it is an
appropriate Catholic Bible. If you need further assistance, consider contacting
a good / trustworthy, traditional Catholic bookseller.
