The Apocryphal Gospels

Did you know that there is an equally large body of writings about the Bible and Jesus that are not in the books in our pews and on our bookshelves? Many of these carry ancient stories of Jesus as a child, the beginnings of Christianity and some may have even been written by and about powerful women. Why are some books in the Bible and others are not? Who decided what to put in and what to leave out? How do we know about these other biblical writings and what should we think of them?
