I am recommending this book to all my friends.

His is by far the most poetic translation, beautifully punctuated in a unique style influenced by early English translations of the Bible.

Whoever photocopied this book from it's original only copies half the pages.

I find it absolutely fascinating the controversy that this book has created.
Concerning whether or not this book should be incorporated into the so-called "canon," I do not feel that I am qualified to speak. However, I would like to attempt to clarify a few of the supposed contradictions between I Enoch and the Bible.
As far as 2 Peter 2 goes, the context of the passage on angels (v. 11) is that angels do not blashpheme God in the same way that humans do (see the Peshitta translation of the Bible by George M. Lamsa - it is a bit clearer).
When it comes to Jude and his epistle, the idea of his quoting Enoch sarcastically is absolutely assinine - just read the Epistle of Jude.
Timothy names Jesus as the supreme intercessor between God and man. In a more general sense of the word, however, there were many people who acted as intercessors between the people of Israel and God (such as Moses, the greatest of all the prophets next to Jesus!).
Finally, Jesus said that in Heaven - or rather, in the world to come - people would not marry each other. However, according to I Enoch, the angels had sex with humans, which did not necessarily involve being married to them.
Concerning the "mythical" aspects of Enoch, they are no more "far fetched" than anything in Scripture.
I Enoch is absolutely fascinating. Enoch is assumed up into Heaven, travels through the Heavens, is told secrets of the coming judgment and the messianic age, sees the workings of Heaven, and pronounces judgements upon the wicked angels.
Although I do recommend that one reads this book since it does, according to Jude, contain prophecy, I recommend it most of all for the sake of improving one's education.

Format: Paperback
I agree wholeheartedly with the scholars who say that THE BOOK OF ENOCH has been tampered with. There are two kinds of verses in THE BOOK OF ENOCH. Verses that are very closely related to the Bible and verses that seem to be mostly folklore. Even though the book has some folklore in it; it should not be ignored. The verses that are closely related to the Bible are worth paying attention to because they re-iterate some of the most basic teachings in the Bible. Teachings such as not oppressing our fellow man and not forgetting to pay attention to our Creator. A good example of the folklore in the BOOK OF ENOCH is the super- natural birth of NOAH in the first part of Ch. 105. Some of the interesting things in the BOOK OF ENOCH are: (1) GOD had wanted to completely break-up the Earth and create another asteroid belt around the SUN but ENOCH asked him not to do it so he didn't do it. (Ch. 82- 83). (2) The Overview of Earth's history from Creation until beyond the Final Judgement. (the footnotes provided are very helpful). (Ch. 84-89). (3) EVE gave birth to many children. (84:4-12). (4) I've never before heard King Saul's life summarized as the one "...who had laid aside his glory." (88:69,71). (5) The "elect", who are mentioned in both the O.T. and N.T., are mentioned 25 times in THE BOOK OF ENOCH. (1:1,2,7;6:9,11... 61:11,14,15). The judgements in THE BOOK OF ENOCH basically agree with the judge- ments in the Bible. The quality of paper and size of type in this paperback are above average. In Ch. 104:10,11 it speaks of those who will rejoice because books of joy, integrity and great wisdom will be given to them. I too rejoice because I have a copy of this wonderful book.

Format: Paperback
The Book of Enoch is a hodgepodge of various materials. I find the mythology of the first eighteen chapters more exciting than some of the relatively opaque cosmological and apocalpyptic sections that follow (though the prophetic parts are suggestive). The story of the revolt and defeat of the Watchers is beautiful and tragic mythology which will appeal to anyone interested in fine literature or curious to learn more about angels or the "giants" frequently (and confusingly) mentioned in Genesis and other OT books. Laurence's translation of Enoch (the first translation into English after the Ethiopic text was discovered by a Scottish adventurer in the 18th century) has been criticized as inferior. If you are looking for precision of translation, you had best seek more recent versions. But if you are looking for a good read (Biblical and moving rather than scholarly), you can't do better than Laurence. His is by far the most poetic translation, beautifully punctuated in a unique style influenced by early English translations of the Bible. Enjoy--and may Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Sarakiel, Uriel, Phanuel and the other good angels watch over you.

Format: Paperback
Jude quotes from this book. It is interesting that many of the early church fathers (Theodotes, Origen, Tertullian, etc.) quote from it and consider it as scripture. It seems to have fallen out of favor with the later fathers and didn't make it into the canon. However, Jude, Hebrews and Revelation were also almost kicked out of the canon. Jude particularly because it quotes Enoch. But, Peter gets his details regarding the "angels that sinned" being cast into Tartarus from Enoch. Nowhere is this particular detail about the Genesis 6 "sons of God" mentioned in our Bible. Also, when Jesus describes "Abraham's bosom", His description either was directly from God, or from the book of Enoch, because Enoch describes the underworld in exactly the same way. Another interesting thing is that Enoch said the angels that sinned were to be judged after 70 generations. It is exactly 70 generations from Enoch to Jesus according to the gospel of Luke. Also, in the vision of the cows and wolves, there does not appear to be a break in time to support the current futurist interpretation of eschatology. Also, in the vision regarding the weeks, there is no break for an inserted "church age" either. Everything harmonizes with Daniel's 70 weeks as being continuous without any breaks between the 69th and 70th week. In other words, the book of Enoch does not agree with a futurist position of eschatology, but lends itself toward a preterist interpretation. This is not to exclude a "hidden" church age, but only that it is continuous like Daniel's 70 weeks. Also, if Enoch is really truth, it would go a long way to explain ancient earth history regarding some of the oddities of evidence regarding visitors from outer space and ancient knowledge seemingly superior to ours.Read more ›
