Item Description...
But in the latter days of Methuselah, the sons of men turned from the Lord, they corrupted the earth, they robbed and plundered each other, and they rebelled against God and they transgressed, and they corrupted their ways, and would not hearken to the voice of Methuselah, but rebelled against him. -from Chapter IV Believed by some to have been the original beginning of the Old Testament, The Book of Jasher has been suppressed and rediscovered numerous times since its initial translation from the Hebrew in AD 800. Referred to in Joshua and Second Samuel, this apocryphal book of the Bible expands upon some of the stories we know so well: we meet Cain and Abel's three sisters, are privy to a more detailed account of the awful circumstances of the Great Flood and Noah's conduct toward the multitudes who assembled before his ark, and learn more about the women of the Bible. Jasher's version of the story of Abraham is considered by many to be the most beautiful as this new perspective on the Old Testament will inspire believers and intrigue readers of ancient literature.

The trusted "Orange Cover Book" of Jasher by Artisan Publishers has a new cover, but the same reliable translation inside.   Feb 28, 2008
I read The Book of Jasher years ago (the Orange Cover book) and then gave it to family members to read. Since I wanted to replace it with the same translation as before (being endorsed by noted religious scholars as to its reliability of translation), I found it again with a great new cover. The name Jasher, means "correct record," and he certainly did keep a very detailed and fascinating account of the events and people found in the books of Genesis and Exodus. - A must read for every serious Bible student.
Jasher  May 14, 2007
I find no real discrepency between this book and the Bible, I enjoyed reading this book even though it was not canonized.
I'm not sold on this book.  Jan 13, 2007
The book reviewed here is the orange paperback some of the other reviewers mentioned.
This book comes off quite bizarre in some of the added details to OT Scripture.
One example is "Adonizek King of Jerusalem,the same was Shem." (Chapter 16:11). This Adonizek sounds a lot like Melchizedek of Hebrews 7:1-3. The setting is identical,following Abram's victory in Genesis 14. I have heard the theory that this King/High Priest was Shem. The problem with this is that Shem has a genealogy(Gen.6:10) while Melchizedek doesn't(Heb.7:2-3).
There is a lot more information in this book regarding Nimrod and his death,the death of Og King of Bashan,the life of Enoch,and the sons of Jacob.
This book purports to give more details to the Old Testament,but are these additions fact or fiction? The answer is probably a bit of both with some passages being exaggerations of fact.
I am sure that there was indeed a "Book of Jasher" as mentioned in the Bible. Is this it? I am not convinced that this book is the genuine article.
Jasher  Jan 13, 2007
This is a must read for every Christian. It is like we have been reading the Reader's Digest Condensed version of the Old Testement and Jasher is the whole and real thing. If you want to find out truth you need to buy this book.
Recommended mature Christian to read this Book """""  Sep 23, 2006
Jasher is mentioned twice in the Old Testament, famous prayer this very interesting
period of the history is given an account of Nimrod & the hunting skin from Adam yes interesting story Jasher is mentioned twice in the Old Testament, in the books of Joshua and Samuel I like this Book one considered a part of the inspired canon of the scripture, the Book of Jasher mirrors many historical accounts in the Old testament
Book I Give this Bible 5 star Good translation
