The Lost Books of The Bible and the Forgotten Books of Eden is a wonderful addition to include in your Biblical or historical studies.This book truly fills in all of the gaps that the Bible does not elaborate on,giving you more detail than you can imagine.For those who are concerned about its authenticity,you can rest assured knowing that The Lost Books proves the Bible and is in no way deceptive.Enjoy this experience of first hand accounts from the perspectives of many well known Biblical characters and those of lesser prominence.

First of all, I took off a star for the very poor print quality of this book. It is poorly organized, hard to read, sometimes too small and crammed on the page. The type needs to be reset in a modern font and format to make it easier to read and comprehend the works in this volume.
As far as the actual content in this book goes, it is very good and useful. Most commentators and critics disparage and denigrate the "Pseudepigrahpa" because they were written at a much later time and by anomymous scribes who credited thier work to a hero or patriarch of the Bible, such as Enoch, Adam, Solomon, The Twelve Patriarchs, etc.

The editor makes a lot of excellent points in his INTRODUCTION to THE LOST BOOKS OF EDEN: "Writers sought to SHELTER THEMSELVES behind the names of the great dead. In this THEY WERE GUILTY OF NO FRAUD. They imagined what Solomon or Enoch would say upon a particular theme under given circumstances. It was NOT REALLY THEY THEMSELVES, but THIER Enoch, Solomon, or Enoch IN THEM, who uttered the new prophesies or temple praises... that body of literature, called by modern scholars 'PSEUDEPIGRAPHA' that is, writings erronously, un-historically, YET SINCERELY ascribed to heroic figures summed up from the vasty deep by a SELF-DENYING imagination, eager to ALTER MAN'S BELIEF OR CUSTOM, to interpret his hope or sorrow, WITHOUT PERSONAL GAIN OR FAME, and also, may one add, WITHOUT THE DETERRENT OF PERSECUTION OT ARREST FREE UTTERANCE!"
"NOW IT IS A FOOLISH MODERN PREDJUDICE AGAINST AN ANCIENT PIECE OF LITERATURE THAT ITS AUTHOR VEILED HIS PERSON IN THIS FASHION. The ONLY question is: Was the writing of INHERENT VALUE? DID IT EXERCISE INFLUENCE?

This is a great book which gives readers who have an interest in history and Scripture a chance to enrich their knowledge of the past. It also gives readers a chance to further appreciate the sincerity and wisdom of the Church Fathers who had to evaluate many, many gospels and other writings before they compiled the Canon. I like the book especially because it provided me with a chance to recognize why these books do not belong as part of the canonical collection. And I like it because it also enhanced my knowledge of how writers have a tendency to embellish history with legend, myth and conjecture to make their point. But these apocryphal and pseudepigraphic writings, while very misleading and sometimes outright false, do on occasion offer additional perspectives on the Cannon, for the canonical authors we are so familiar with were men of very few words.

I'm in the beginning stages of reading this book, so I cannot comment on all of it just yet. I will say, however, that it has answered some of the questions that I've often had about principles characters in the bible. I've also often wondered why these books were left out of the bible. As a woman, I found it very uplifting to read the story of Mary's childhood as well as other stories that mentioned or focused on women. From what I've read so far, I definitely recommend it!

The book contains a nice variety of works from early Christianity and to some extent the old testament era. If you are a beginer of the study of such works this is a nice starting book as you can see a small sampling of each of the many types of works that were written and the very different messages these books sometimes gave (part of why they aren't widely studied today in Churchs). However, every book contained in this work is to be found in other collections and I know of single collective books that contain most of these works and more with better translations. A nice starting point but not something that is really valuable to someone who has been already been studying other works from the time of the formation of the cannon.
