I consider the Apocrypha and other esoteric non-canon books as extra credit reading for the Bible.

I won't give you a rundown of texts. Explore them for yourself.

What I will do is tell you What Kindle Readers Want To Know:

It has an Active Table of Contents for the main contents page
and for the individual books. A great plus for Navigating!

Is is formatted very well for Kindle with verse numbers and clear reading.

With that in mind, spend the 99 cents and get some "extra credit"!

They aren't in the Bible because somebody at a council close to 1700 years ago decided they shouldn't be in the Bible. However, some Bibles are printed with the Apocrypha between the Old and New Testament, which is a good place for them. They include history, wisdom literature, and prophecy (well hidden). If you're going to read Josephus, who is a monumentally boring writer but the only source for many things, take pity on yourself and read the Apocrypha first.

If you aren't going to read Josephus, read the Apocrypha anyway. It's well worth reading. I enjoyed it the first time I read it, and during subsequent readings.

I bought this for an extended Bible Study class that I am taking. It contains most of the books in my Aprocrypha class-list. It does not have Psalm 151 or 3rd and 4th Maccabees, but neither do any of the other Apocryphal collections that I could find.

A good value for only 99 cents.

The translation is in old English, like the King James Bible version, which is okay by me. Each book includes a small commentary introduction in modern English.

It is Fairly well indexed. It has a table of contents with links to each book. You can super-page from book to book. At the start of each book there is a link to each chapter in the book. But you cannot super-page from chapter to chapter. You must return to the start of the book and take a link to the desired chapter.

This book worked very well when I was in a Disciple Study at church. I used it many times. The Bible on my Kindle take too long to get to where I want, but this did not.

I have wanted to study the Apocrypha for some time. There is history to be extracted from it and I look forward to spending some time with it.

I am always interested in historical books, especially religious oriented books. Many people don't realize that the New Testament was a compilation of letters and books written during and up to 150 years after the time of Christ. The Pauline letters were written by the Apostle Paul during his ministry after his miraculous conversion shortly after the crucifixion of Christ. Not every letter, writing, or supposed document by an apostle, or contemporary follower of Christ, was accepted as scripture. In fact, it wasn't until the late 4th century that most Churches accepted all the canonized 27 books of the New Testament as scripture.

The Apocrypha, though originally part of the Catholic Bible (and still is today), was later removed from the Bible by the Protestant Christian faiths. The Apocrypha is an intriguing set of writings that remind the Christian believer that although the Bible is a selection of scripture given by God, it is not the only word regarding the life and ministry of Jesus Christ and his apostles and missionaries; it is simply what religious scholars over the ages have agreed to be Gospel.

Nestle's Greek New Testament, considered by most scholars to be the foundation upon which all other New Testament translations derived, lists 132 New Testament passages that allude to books that are not part of the modern day New Testament. All modern versions of the New Testament have references to books that are missing from the New Testament such as Thias, Epimenides, the Book of Enoch, The Life of Adam and Eve, the Assumption of Moses and the Martyrdom of Isaiah, to name a few.

It is interesting how most Christians will claim that the Bible is infallible, perfect and complete.

I had always wanted to read the Apocrypha and was glad to find it on my Kindle. Being a Christian, I have read the Bible through several times, but was always curious about these "missing" books. After reading this it is easy to see why these books were not included in the scriptural canon. However, they do provide some historical information about ancient religion. I especially appreciated the background information given before each book. I personally would recommend that anyone who reads this would read the entire Bible first. It will make more sense to you then.

This book is a translation of 14 ancient documents known as the Apocrypha. These books contain more detail than the chapters in the Bible. The Apocrypha describes the affairs and accounts of man and his relation with God, There have been criticism's as to why the Apocrypha are not included in the Bible. A reading of any book in Apocrypha answers this question. These books contain tons of personal and spiritual accounts of the people of those ancient ages and I wondered how much was embellishment. Its a good read if you like stories.
