  1. I was actually hoping he would discuss the Book of Tobit, as that is one of my favorite of the old testament books. Tobit is also critical in terms of it’s content, as we know there are seven archangels from this book and the name of the Archangel Raphael in particular; along with the name of what is most likely one of the fallen archangels whom Raphael bound in the desert of Egypt. I could go on and on about the many things the Book of Tobit relays and its implications for Catholic and Christian theology.   Tim
