Item Description...
This English translation of the new and thoroughly revised sixth German edition of the extensive extra-canonical gospel literature is an absolutely indispensable collection of sources for every student of the New Testamen and of the history and literature of ancient Christianity . . . The important newly discovered gospels from the Nag Hammadi Library, only reported in a preliminary summary fashion in the previous editions, are now presented in their complete texts with excellent introductions.

Publishers Description

This revised edition is a translation of the sixth German edition, just as the original English "New Testament Apocrypha" was a translation of the third German edition. The introductions to individual texts have been either completely rewritten or thoroughly revised. This book reflects current research findings. The bibliographical data in all sections has been updated as well. Some of the texts have been newly translated, some completely revised, and three completely new texts have been added. Indexes have been included in this volume that allow access to both volumes of the entire work.

NOTE: See my other review on vol. 1 of New Testament Apocrypha

Schneemelcher did it again! This is the second volume in the greatest translation of the important works of Apocrypha existing. It includes all of the different Acts of Apostles, the Apocalypses and 3 writings of the Nag Hammadi codices. I really enjoyed the commentary and history summarization before each document. Whether complete or fragment, this volume offered terrific insight in the post NT writings and offered interesting (yet, still false) additions to the acts of the apostles, in particular, Peter, Thomas, Andrew and Paul, including accounts of their martyrdom (though I believe Thomas was only fragments). Anyone serious about studying church history, or any student or Origen, Eusebius or Justin is definitely going to want to have this and vol. 1 in their library, and I also recommend Robinson's "The Nag Hammadi Library In English" to supplement this in any codices not contained in Schneelmelcher's work. While the Apocrypha, despite what some "scholars" say shouldn't be taken seriously, they are important to study and this is truly the best collection of Apocryphal NT texts out there.

What the first volume did for the Apocryphal Gospels. . .  Nov 16, 2001
. . .this volume does for the Acts and Apocalypses of the Apostles.

This book "New Testament Apocrypha: Writings Relating to the Apostles Apocalypses and Related Subjects" , like the companion volume, is THE definitive scholarly English-language edition of the sub-canonical, post New Testament era Acts of various Apostles, lives of various Apostolic personalities, and Apocalypses and Revelations of all sorts.

Again, like the first volume, each text is expertly translated (with textual variants properly explained) and is preceded by a scholarly introduction discussing issues of critical importance. Appropriate references are also provided, so that the student or researcher has a "jumping-off" point for further study.

Any serious student of the New Testament and post New Testament era cannot affford to be without both of these texts. I highly recommend them both.

A good effort marred by archaism  Apr 19, 2001
Volume II of New Testament Apocrypha represents a comprehensive collection of the pseudo-apostolic writings of early Christianity. The introductions are quite good. The translations, however, are marred by frequent use of achaic, pseudo-biblical language which has thankfully been done away with in most modern translations of ancient texts. Do we really need to read words like "haply", "whilst", and "such-like", or a phrase like "do ye repent you" in the late 20th century? For those just interested in sampling a variety of these works, and more, a good portion of the translations of this book are available at a lower price in "The Other Bible". For the hard core, however, this book does contain material unavailable elsewhere.
A worthy companion volume. . .  Jul 26, 2000
In this volume, and its companion, Wilson's English language translation of Schneemelcher's magnum opus, is presented in a most scholarly, critical edition. This book is a must, not only for the serious student of sub-New Testament literature, but also for pastors who wish to be informed as to the highest scholarship in this field.

This second volume, dealing with the apocryphal Acts of many of the Apostles (John, Andrew, etc.), and also with Apocalyptic material, demonstrates how the Early Church viewed the Apostles, as well as how heretical sects tried to "appropriate" the names and careers of early Christians in attempts to justify their own theologies. This volume also demonstrates the importance of Apocalyptic writing, both in Jewish and Christian circles. Finally, like it's companion volume, this book shows how early popular piety influenced early Christian writings.

Both volumes are highly recommended.

for anyone who is intrested in more than mainstream religion  Sep 25, 1999
the Nag Hammadi find was my first introduction to something other than the bible as a way to god. there's so much more to religion than just believing.this book is part of an intellictal growth.thanks
