Full Answer

The Catholic Bible and the Protestant Bible are different. The Catholic Bible has seven more books than the Protestant Bible. In addition to the extra books, there are some other differences between the Catholic and Protestant Bibles since they use different standards for what should be included in the Bible.

Interestingly, the New Testament of the Protestant and Catholic Bibles are the same. Each version of each type of Bible will vary from other versions because of differences in translation.
