Item Description...
This work contains twenty ancient holy books, many of which were rejected from the Old Testament. Some of these books were later preserved by the early Christian Church as Apocryphal writings, often inserted in Bibles between the Old and New Testaments. They were originally recognized by the Jews as Pseudepigrapha because they were attributed to writers that were long since passed, in an effort to give them sanctity. It is these that are reproduced in this volume. Some of the titles include The First and Second Books of Adam and Eve, The Secrets of Enoch, The Psalms of Solomon, The Odes of Solomon, The Story of Ahikar, and The Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs. More and more interest is being paid to excluded texts, and this collection falls into that category, having added another interesting dimension to lost Biblical texts.

Should be part of the bible  Feb 25, 2007
Having studied Jewish and Christian scriptures over many years, one develops a recognition of flavour of these scripts. To this I can only say that having read `The forgotten books of Eden', I found nothing to disagree with those scripts as we have them in the Christian bible. The scripts contained within `The forgotten books of Eden', add to the beauty and wonder of the Jewish and Christian scriptures; this in my opinion, enhances ones faith.

For those of you who have not studied how we have gotten the bible, it most be noted that it was decided essentially by people over time (Council of Trent etc), that certain scripts would be included and others left out. Some may say that the bible is totally inspired and put together by God, of this I could not disagree in part, but looking at history, I cannot but see that many actions have been done in the name of God that were obviously not the will of a loving God and other actions that obviously bear the taint of humanity.

I have also read the books of the `Apocrypha'. These are scripts that relate to the period between the end of the Old Testament (Malachi 400 BC) and the New Testament. (4 BC). It is said that these books were written in this period also. There is controversy with these books being included with the Bible, mainly due to conflicts of scripture. The Catholic Church accepts most of these books and one can find reference to Purgatory (place between heaven and hell - Dante, Abrahams Bosom (?)) contained therein. Personally I found these books a little dry and recall them being mainly associated with the wars conducted in the periods mentioned above. It may be helpful to read the `Apocrypha' to understand the history of this period and the expectations of the Jewish people. I mention the Apocrypha in that I found `The Forgotten books of Eden' to be much more colourful and enjoyable to read. To those Christians who live in fear of reading these scripts, I would say "Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling", be willing to recognise that if you search for absolute truth with a sincere heart, you walk in the company of angels.
