The Book of Jasher was very much like a bible read. It does give you more insight into the Old Testament than what was excepted by the writers of the translation we now use. If you are interested in Old Testament, you will find this an interesting read.

Study guide material June 29 2008
By Michael Evans - Published on Amazon.com
I am doing a comprehensive study of the Bible and am very grateful to have picked up this book.

First let me say, this is not scripture. This is a secular history book. It deals with the history between the creation and up to Joshua. Actually just after Joshua. Some may question some of the accuracies in the book, but like all ancient manuscripts there are some questionable material. Still, it reads very easy and gives some insights into several of the stories in Genesis.

Very good book, and its nice to read something of antiquity versus reading a modern interpretation on history from some guy 4-6 thousand years removed from the time of the first 5 books of the Bible. IE, ancient texts have more validity than old opinionated professors with agendas. Read the book and formulate your own mind.

Book of Jasher Aug. 3 2008
By Timothy B. Janes - Published on Amazon.com
I found the Book of Jasher absolutely facsinating. It fills in many, of the perhaps unnecesary, details in Old Testament stories.
I found it exteremely credible except for the story related by Anah in Chap 30:20-33 which sound like Greek mythology. However it may truly record the report of Anah irrespective of whether Anah was telling the truth.
I find the explanation of Melchezidec epecially confirminmg as I had graphed in timeline the longevities of the patriarchs and knew through that study that Noah and Shem lived at the same time as Abraham.
I am still thorougly enjoying this book.

RE: the comment "Don't be misled, this is a Morman Rendition" Aug. 1 2009
By Quinn Rousell - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Actually, there is nothing "Mormon" about this "rendition" whatsoever. The publisher and the introduction by Jeffrey Marsh are mormon but the rendition itself is not. This English rendition was first published in 1840 by a non-Mormon publisher. Joseph Smith, the founder of Mormonism said a favorable comment about it and then a mormon publishing company(J.H.Parry) acquired the copyright to it and republished it in 1887. The 1840 edition was actually published by a Jew and point in fact this is the only "book of Jasher" that has any possibility of being the actual lost book of the bible, that is actually based on a Hebrew text. The English rendering is actually a very good translation of the Hebrew. This Hebrew text does exist and is available (I have 4 Hebrew copies of it myself). The oldest copy of the Hebrew text that is now known to exist was printed in 1625. Needless to say, this is long before the Mormon religion came on the scene. So no, this is not a Mormon rendition, and no, it really is based on a Hebrew original. Is it folklore? Lets just let one decide that for themself but please lets not be so hasty. There is a vast amount of parallels with Jasher and other ancient literature, such as the Talmud and other Jewish writings. But there are not only Jewish parallels! There are also great similarities with other ancient literature such as greek mythology(which may be based on a seed of truth), and the Koran. Actually, there are many reasons to believe that this book dates much farther back than 1625 and may in fact be the book mentioned twice by the Bible. So please dont just pass up this book based on the comments of people who really shouldnt be trying to educate others on things in which they are ignorant. Check it out for yourself. I find the book of Jasher to be exciting, informative and inspiring! But there are publishers and versions that you might find more informative(...sorry Jeffrey, but the middle paragraph on page X of your introduction "smack"s too close to plagiarism of "Appendix A" of Wayne Simpsons version. I can handle your Mormon views but simply copying anothers work is not fair to the original author).

Review of the Book of Jasher Sept. 30 2007
By William S. Owen - Published on Amazon.com
This book is written in such a way that it enhances the first five books of the bible. It goes into much greater detail on the stories we all have learned by reading the holy bible. One example is the hate / love relationship between Esau and Jacob. This is a significant historical record as the Book of Jasher is mentioned in both I Samuel and Joshua.

The book of JASHER Dec 6 2008
By Savannah T - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I really like this book because of the biblical accounts in Genesis, Exodus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, and Joshua fill in the blanks the King James Version did not include. I felt like I was right there as history was unfolding with every account given. I don't have to guess what all happen during the great Deluge and during and after the Tower of Babel. I was able to learn more about Nimrod, Abraham and other bibical figures.
I also like the book cover, it is colorful showing Egypt link during bibical times.
