[quote:7fhq0moq]The seven disputed books are: Tobit, Judith, Wisdom, Sirach, Baruch and 1 and 2 Maccabees. There are also some sections of Esther and Daniel not considered inspired Scriptures by Protestants. Protestants call these seven books the apocryphal books. Catholics, however, call these same disputed books deuterocanonical.[/quote:7fhq0moq]
These books are only disputed by those that reject the authority of the Catholic Church. It was settled centuries ago however.

One thing of note is that when Martin Luther was purging the Bible of what he didn’t like he wanted to eliminate James and a couple other NT books.
