Product Description

The writers of the Bible lived in a world filled with many writings. Some of these documents are lost forever, but many have been preserved. Part of these extant sources are the Pseudepigrapha. This collection of Jewish and Christian writings shed light on early Judaism and Christianity and their doctrines. This landmark set includes all 65 Pseudepigraphical documents from the intertestamental period that reveal the ongoing development of Judaism and the roots from which the Christian religion took its beliefs. A scholarly authority on each text contributes a translation, introduction, and critical notes for each text.

Volume 2 includes expansions of the "Old Testament": legends, wisdom, and philosophical literature; prayers, psalms, and odes; and fragments of lost Judeo-Hellenistic Works.

Contributors include E. Isaac, B.M. Metzger, J.R. Mueller, S.E. Robinson, D.J. Harrington, G.T. Zervos, and many others.

    Same review for this volume as for the vol. 1 review. I'm well pleased with these volumes as far as binding quality, scholarship, printing, etc. My only regret is that I bought the paperback (cost) instead of the hardcover. I plan to keep and use these books for a long time. I like books. I think this paperback will hold up fine, but I prefer hard cover in quality books such as these.
