Q&A

Was the Council of Trent inconsistent in its treatment of the deuterocanonical books?

Question:

I read in a Protestant book recently that the Council of Trent was inconsistent because it accepted some “apocryphal” books—such as 1 and 2 Maccabees—as canonical but did not accept others, such as 1 and 2 Esdras. How do you respond?
