The Lost Books of the Bible by William Hone, Jeremiah Jones, William Wake Excised from the standard bible by various church councils, these "lost" texts help to give depth to the historical characters of Jesus, Mary, the apostles, and other figures of the New Testament.
The Quest of the Historical Jesus by Albert Schweitzer, W. Montgomery, F. C. Burkitt Groundbreaking study that examines the works of more than fifty 18th- and 19th-century authors and scholars and concludes that many of the earlier historical reconstructions of Christ were largely fantasies.
The Book of Jubilees by Anonymous, R. H. Charles Chiefly reflecting the content of Genesis and Exodus, this apocryphal work offers material not found in the Bible concerning the Fall, angels, the Flood, the Tower of Babel, and many other fascinating subjects.
Nostradamus and His Prophecies by Edgar Leoni Complete, definitive study: biography, historical background, and parallel texts in English and French of all the prophecies, most of the famous — and infamous — interpretations, and much more.
R. H. Charles provides a definitive translation of one of the most noted apocalyptic works still in existence. Often described as "the lost book" of the Bible, The Book of Enoch seems to have been written in Palestine by several different authors in the first and second centuries B.C. For hundreds of years it was accepted by the early church fathers, but it was rejected by the council of Laodicea in A.D. 364. Today, it remains a written remnant of the Apocalypse—an ardent testament to hope and the triumph of good over evil in the dawning of a world to come. Rife with concepts of original sin, fallen angels, demonology, resurrection, and the last judgment, it is a vital document to the origins of Christianity. The Book of Enoch is comprised of various monumental works: The Book of Enoch, The Parables, The Book of the Courses of the Heavenly Luminaries, The Dream Visions, The Concluding Section, and The Noah Fragments. Each work is independent, but all the works are bound by a common theme: the punishment of the wicked and the blessedness of the righteous. This edition, complete with analysis and notes, is an indispensable resource for the study and understanding of both the Old and New Testaments.
