Very well written compilation March 29 2011
By S. Ruff - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Easy to read and well researched. I was looking for a single book to start my research endeavor into the rejected books of the bible - books that were not deemed "acceptable" to be placed in the Christian version for whatever reason the Council of Nicea decided these books were deemed unworthy. Some rejected books were burned and sadly we will never know what books actually existed but this is a well translated and well thought out compilation of those that were not destroyed. I am very happy I started my research with this book.

This book has it all!!! Jan. 2 2011
By Charles M. Acord - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My mother told me that she wanted to study the apocryphal books of the Bible in 2011, so she asked me to research the available books and select one to give her for Christmas. Naturally, I went directly to First, I selected the Edgar Goodspeed translation as the best translation/commentary from what I could tell. It seems to have all the apocryphal books, whereas many of the other volumes I came up with did not. Then, I came across this volume. It has not only what is considered to be the "traditional" apocrypha, but a whole bunch of other "lost" and "apocryphal" writings. So I figured that I would get it for her as a companion volume to the Goodspeed volume. She just opened it recently, and commented to me that she was astounded at the number of "additional" books that were in it, and that it has opened up a whole new horizon of study for her. Since I am not the actual user of this book, perhaps the five stars I am giving it is actually a rating of me as a gift-giver, but I have pleased my mother, and that is something we should all aspire to, is it not?

A Wonderful Study Guide. Oct. 12 2012

First of all, let me say that this book in no way replaces the Bible, but rather adds to it, magnifies it, and gives you a greater depth of understanding. It has many Books that are mentioned in Biblical texts but were not, until now, available to research and study. An example of this is the Book of Jasher, which is mentioned in two books of the Bible; 2 Samuel and Joshua. With this text, you have the Book of Jasher before you to study and learn what the other books referred to. It also has the additions to the Book of Esther, which fill in some ambiguous parts of the text we are used to. For example, it expands on Mordecai's overhearing of the plot to harm King Xerxes and why Haman became jealous of Mordecai. It goes into detail of Esther's prayer to the Lord, and how the king came to hear her story.
It also has the Apocryphal Books which can only add to one's understanding of how God worked with His people. The Book of the Maccabees not only explain the origins of Channukah, but also tell of the careful hiding of the Ark of the Covenant. (Sorry, Indy.)
I truly recommend this text for anyone who really wants to seriously learn a bit more about the Bible and of the times it was written, both old and new testaments. You will definitely get your money's worth from this book.

it feels very honestly collected...a lot of infos besides the writings...for tells you from where they have the text...and sometimes the sentence ends with ... and it explains that the writing could not be read because the original writing was in a bad shape.
so much to read and fun and sooo interesting...... and the books are complete....

Bible research Jan. 5 2012

Great for those who want more of God. Teaches beyond the Bible. Does not replace the Bible, it enhances the Bible. It helps to answer questions that the church has not been able to explain. It fullfills the Bible because these are books that should never have been left out.
