Product Description

A highly significant resource for biblical studies

This work stands among the most important publications in biblical studies over the past twenty-five years. Richard Bauckham, James Davila, and Alexander Panayotov's new two-volume collection of Old Testament pseudepigrapha contains many previously unpublished and newly translated texts, complementing James Charlesworth's Old Testament Pseudepigrapha and other earlier collections.

Including virtually all known surviving pseudepigrapha written before the rise of Islam, this volume, among other things, presents the sacred legends and spiritual reflections of numerous long-dead authors whose works were lost, neglected, or suppressed for many centuries. Excellent English translations along with authoritative yet accessible introductions bring those ancient documents to life for readers today.

Editorial Reviews

Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society
“This is a monumental work. . . . One cannot help but place this volume alongside that of Charlesworth and others to enrich our understanding of these texts and the communities that preserved them.”

Choice (American Library Association)
“Graced with fresh translations and fine scholarly notations, this volume surely will become a standard work. Essential.”

Association of Jewish Library Reviews
“A significant contribution to Biblical studies, Jewish history in the Second Temple period, and studies in early Christianity.”

The Bible Today
“This is a ponderous book, a resource for serious study. Despite this, its importance cannot be underestimated.”

George W. E. Nickelsburg
-- University of Iowa
"In our study of early Judaism and early Christianity we have been spoiled by large corpora of texts, but we seldom consider that these preserve only a portion of what was actually written (or orally composed). Here brought together in one place for the first time, and translated and discussed with the best scholarship, is a collection of texts and text fragments that provide a peek into that broader, unknown world."

James Kugel
-- Bar-Ilan University
"A monumental work, vital to the study of early Judaism and Christianity in general, and to the history of ancient biblical interpretation in particular. Anyone who owns one of the earlier compilations of Old Testament pseudepigrapha will have to supplement it with this volume, which fills in much of what’s missing in the others. This is a scholarly achievement for the generations."

Matthias Henze
-- Rice University
"This new collection of pseudepigrapha is a great accomplishment. Editors Bauckham, Davila, and Panayotov have assembled an impressive team of leading scholars in the field. The list of pseudepigrapha in this volume is astounding, including many little-known treasures. Each text is introduced by an expert, the English translations are elegant and accessible, and the notes are most helpful. . . . An indispensable supplement to the two volumes edited by James Charlesworth of Old Testament pseudepigrapha."

Michael Stone
-- Hebrew University of Jerusalem
"This timely and highly significant work makes available a range of works from as early as the late ninth century BCE to the Byzantine period. The book complements admirably the various collections of ’apocrypha and pseudepigrapha’ that have been published from the beginning of the twentieth century on. . . . The texts in this volume are translated from Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek, Latin, Syriac, Armenian, and other languages, and this book makes most of them available in English for the first time. This work is essential for students of the Jewish and Christian traditions, Eastern and Western."

Emanuel Tov
-- Hebrew University of Jerusalem
"With the proliferation of newly discovered ’pseudepigrapha’ in the last fifty years, it was necessary to bring them together in an accessible way. The editors of this volume are to be congratulated for doing so magnificently. The fine text editions and analyses here are very well written and encourage further study. Highly recommended for both the nonspecialist and the connoisseur!"
