Being raised Southern Baptist with a strong emphasis on the KJV of the Bible and later converting to Catholicism because my husband was Catholic and then spending many years working for a Jewish law firm, I was exposed to many different religious beliefs, customs, traditions and aspects. When I became older, I wanted to know "more". Just from a purely logical standpoint, there had to be a beginning, a middle and an "end"...yet there were too many gaps in the "history" depicted by the Bible. Yet I do believe in God and I am in Christian in that I believe in Jesus being the only son of God, but there were parts of the story missing. This book fills in all those gaps. It is beautifully written. It is easy to read. It is comprehensive. It is rational. It is direct. I do not dare to believe that one religion is the "perfect" religion and I think anyone in this modern day and time who does think that way has a lot to learn. This book fills in the gaps from where Adam and Eve left the garden, how their bodies transformed into their "animal" state, and explains many, many, many other details that make the bible really make SENSE to those of us who need that little boost of logic sometimes to help edge that faith on just a bit. It is a wonderful book and I highly recommend it to anyone who would like to fill in all those gaps and empty spots that are left by the beautifully written, yet very incomplete KJV of the bible. Even the Catholic version of the bible which has more books than the KJV does not do justice to these beautiful books that were left out. I am appalled that in the 21st Century these books are still not included.Read more ›

Let's start with the orgin to the bible, it was compiled by the ROMAN emporer Constantine to save his crumbling empire.He gathered all the Gnosis scholars collected documents containing ANY story of Jesus and EDITED the image of Jesus into what we have today.Any mention of him being less than a perfect person was destroyed or hidden!God let this happen...why you ask? He moves mysterious ways.These books are well translated and easy to read,and least we forget that books of the Bible have been removed or added for centries and WHOLE revisions of the books in the bible are as common as a hundred years ago.This book claimes to be lost stories of a forgotten past,one twised to conform to what a DEAD DICTATOR wanted.If you want to see some rewrithing look at a KJV Gen 49:6 than a NIV there is a hell of a difference between the two passages!But the word of God can't be wrong,can it? nope but people are.People are imperfect bags of bones we mess up and when we mess it up we hide books like this one.We cover up what we don't like to keep dogma alive.These are excellent books well worth the read.These texts come from a purer source than anyone of the Gospels could ever hope to be.We now have the back storie,which completes the whole picture.Now wouldn't you think God would want that,after all he would make sure that salvation would be found anyway nessisary?This book follows up where HIDDEN books like the Enoch texts leaves out.Read these books and decide for yourself are these really BLASPHEMOUS? or just lost historie?

Format: Paperback
This text is a reprinting of two books (written in 1926 and 1927) containing "pseudepigrapha" -- books which some considered to be scripture in the past, but which were not included in the canonical Bible that almost all Christian churches use. Some of these books were quoted in books in the Christian New Testament; St. Paul quotes from 1 Enoch. The "Forgotten Books of Eden" half of this book will be of interest to students of the Jewish scriptures. Anybody who takes Bible scholarship seriously and who can afford to spend $10 should have a copy of these pseudepigrapha.
The original publication dates are important here, because biblical archaeology and textual studies have progressed substantially in the past seventy years. For example, this book predates the discovery of the apocryphal Gospel of Thomas, and accordingly does not include it.
The paperback edition of this book is the most economical way I know to get all of this material together. Some critical notes describing the origins of these texts are included. If you have a larger budget, the current standard editions of these texts (also available through AMAZON.COM) are Charlesworth's "Old Testament Pseudepigrapha" and Schneemelcher's "New Testament Apocrypha."
You can pre-read a chapter of this book by searching for the words "Infancy Gospel" on the web. The "Infancy Gospel", included in this book, tells stories of the early days of Jesus's life. It presents Jesus as divine, yet also having the personality of a five-year-old boy.
