More About Henry G. Graham

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! The Rev. Father Henry Grey Graham, M.A., was a priest and author of the twentieth century. He authored such works as "What Faith Really Means," "Where We Got the Bible" (both originally published by the B. Herder Book Company, Missouri), and "Hindrances to Conversion." Father Graham wrote in a clear and easily-understood compositional style, and covered material including Bible history and the difference between the Catholic faith and Protestantism's "trust in Jesus as Personal Savior." "What Faith Really Means" and "Where We Got the Bible" were both printed by TAN in 2010.

Debunks Silly Claims About the History of the Bible  Sep 29, 2008
While not terribly deep this little work is an informative and accurate read. It's easy to read and it does a nice job of debunking erroneous claims made about the history of the Bible. Claims that are often offered as ipso-facto "proof."

It does a nice job of explaining the problems with people like Wycliffe and Tyndale. How the Catholic Church had long translated the Bible into English (and Saxon before that) and a host of other vernacular languages long before man even created Protestantism.

It provides a good basis for further reading and study.
Where we got the Bible   Jun 19, 2008
Where We Got the Bible tells the story how Catholics kept the Bible from being lost and how it was translated into the language of the people. Through the centuries as languages changed the Church provided new translations. It also has the story of Henry Graham and why he chose to be Catholic. Jesus started a Church and said he would be with it until the end of time. The Holy Spirit would guide it. The teaching of Jesus is made to last forever through his Church as a living witness. Jesus resurrected from the dead and the Church can say "and I was there". I think it is a good book for all Christians to read.

who would have thought  Dec 17, 2007
Typical.As I was growing up outside the Church, no one ever told me the truth about the origins of our Bible.Yes,the Bible was given to us by the Catholic Church.You wont here that in the denominational groups.because it doesnt fit their "truth".It sure opened my eyes,and it will yours too.
Tough love with hard facts  Dec 5, 2007
In response to the Protestant cries of "the Bible alone", Mr. Graham responds, "Which Bible?" With biting sarcasm and historical acumen Mr. Graham takes on the assumptions of "sola scriptura" and rips the foundation of private interpretation from under Protestant feet. Beware, Mr. Graham gives little wiggle room and his gift for sarcasm can cut deep. This work is not for the thin-skinned and easily shaken. The challenge is intense.

Mr. Graham begins by tracing the historical record of how the canon of scripture came to be accepted and challenges Protestants for rejecting what was established and accepted for over 1000 years of church history. He goes on to point out that the textual critics who point out the varied early manuscripts pose no challenge to the Catholic position that the scriptures we have today are the creation of and part of her tradition while the Protestant view is challenged to respond to the modern critics on glaring inconsistencies in determining the "original" text. After dangling the poor Protestants over the shark-infested waters of the critics, he goes on to challenge their historical knowledge concerning the appreciation of scripture in the middle ages. Going on with the history lesson he provides the background for the rejection of scripture translations produced by the likes of Wycliff and Tyndale and demonstrates how that floodgate of Protestant translations led to all sorts of erroneous translations and heretical movements.

Just as predicted during the reformation, Protestantism has fragmented into thousands of sects and a host of cults and heretical teachers. Contrary to common accusations against the Catholic church concerning the translation of scripture for the people simply demonstrate their lack of depth in historical understanding. Mr. Graham does a fine job of setting the record straight and poses a serious challenge to any who would accept the challenge to read this apologetic. The only detraction is that, at times, Mr. Graham's sarcasm may come across as less than charitable. But that is a very minor detraction considering the years of venom to which he is responding.
A Solid Catholic Title  Jun 20, 2007
"Where We Got The Bible..." is a very good book if you're a Catholic. It gives a very solid argument against the belief that the Catholic Church tried to withhold the Sacred Scriptures from the laity. However, like many others (both Catholic and Protestant) have mentioned, Rev. Graham has only a handful of sources to back up all of his claims. Granted, most Catholics will probably accept this limited amount of sources from both Catholic and Protestant writings, but to properly defend statements such as those made in this book to a Protestant, there needs to be more references available.

Graham's argument starts with the "compilation" of the books of the Bible, the writing of numerous copies in numerous languages by the religious of the Catholic Church and then gradually enters the era of the printing press and a very large number of Protestant versions of the Bible that contain quite a few errors and misleading statements. Some of the errors are, according to the author, intentional, but I'll let each reader decide this on their own.

Personally, I converted to Catholicism back in 2000. In the few years before that time, I researched the Church for myself. I found a number of very helpful guides for non-Catholics to read. Titles by Kevin Orlin Johnson, Scott Hahn, and Patrick Madrid all fall into this category. "Where We Got The Bible..." comes off, in my opinion, a bit too harsh for people who are just becoming interested in the Catholic faith. As I stated before, this is a wonderful book for Catholics, but it doesn't have enough backing it up to make it a legitimate defense of the Faith in the eyes of a Protestant. I recommend it to Catholics and to those with a general interest in the history of Chrisitianity, but I wouldn't classify it as a solid apologetic.
