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?

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?
