Product Description

An oldie, but goodie. The apocryphal texts are not given the same weight as those that were included in the canon; nevertheless, there is much valuable background material here for interpreting ancient times. Also, they can be read for spiritual edification. From Tobit to Judith to Maccabees. 493 pages, softcover. Random House.

Publisher's Description

The Apocrypha consists of the books that are found in the Greek version of the Jewish Bible--the Septuagint, the earliest complete version of the Bible we possess--but that were not included in the final, canonical version of the Hebrew Bible. For this reason, they were called “Apocrypha,” the hidden or secret books, and while they formed part of the original King James version of 1611, they are no longer included in modern Bibles. Yet they include such important works as The First Book of Maccabees, the Wisdom of Solomon, Ecclesiasticus, and the stories of Susanna, Tobit, and Judith, and other works of great importance for the history of the Jews in the period between the rebuilding of the Temple and the time of Jesus, and thus for the background of the New Testament. These works have also had a remarkable impact on writers and artists. Beyond this, they are often as powerful as anything in the canonical Bible.

The translation into contemporary English is by Edgar J. Goodspeed.

    This is a must have book. In fact, you should read the apocrypha because it is used historically. Without a knowledge of it, you will lack analytic abilities toward literature in the western world. Also, you will lack the appreciation of different constructs in Jewish thought. Any serious researcher of Jedeo-Christian Literature & Culture will have this among other texts in their library.

    Not a must have, but nevertheless an interesting addition to have in your library. I can understand why some of the books where left out but on that same note there are some books that could have been put in the canon and only added to what is already the greatest book ever written.
