Whatever theological disagreements one might have with the compiler and editor of this volume, and Dr. Yefru's critical analysis therein, there is no denying that Rev. Ronald K. Brown has presented the reading public with something wonderful and very readable. It is a breath of fresh air. This volume is a noble addition to the right library, to any person who is interested in the history of the Book of Enoch. "Believers" and church study groups will find it useful and informative, as will critics, skeptics, scholars and humanists. Certainly there is nothing to fear here, unless one is afraid of a good story.
Written, refined and compiled over a period spanning at least 800 years (approx. 250 BCE-650 CE, from Qumran through the Hellenistic and Roman periods), the Book of Enoch, or Henok, is one of the finest non-canonical writings produced in the apocalyptic tradition, and is referenced numerous times in canonical books. It certainly influenced the OT and NT. Ironically, Enoch was once (and in some places, still is) part of the canon. The reader will at once see that Rev. Brown has compiled and edited a version of the Book of Enoch from purely Ethiopic sources, though he does not cite which manuscripts he referenced and studied for this compilation of a truly "African" edition of Enoch. Whatever the reasons Rev. Brown speaks only broadly of his studies of Ethipoic texts (and the questionable, dated, 1906 translation by R.H. Charles), this book is compiled from the only known complete works of Enoch dating from antiquity.
The most complete texts of Enoch have been preserved through the Ethiopic Christian Church in a language known as Ge'ez.

I became aware of the Book of Enoch during a recent sunday sermon

at church. I was curious as to why the Book of Enoch did not appear in either the King James version of the Bible or the

current Catholic Bible. I looked forward to receiving this book

from Amazon. It is hard cover, and very nicely presented. Its

something I can add to my book collection. The author very carefully footnoted everything. I learned a great deal. But one

outstanding fact came to light. Both the Catholic Church and all the Protestants ripped out this book from the Old Testament, even though the Book of Enoch was in the Bible for over 500 years.

Some preachers say that the Book of Enoch was not "divinely" inspired. However, the author's clear presentation of this

ancient scripture shows that Enoch, the great grandfather of

Noe, foretold the Great Deluge. Chapter 84 is devoted to "Enoch's

Prayer" which asks God to not destroy all persons, but to at

least leave Enoch with survivors in his family. The Book of

Enoch probably came under political scrutiny because it talks

of all the interactions between angels (both good and bad angels)

and human beings. There was also some astronomical data presented

which probably contradicted offical Church positions during the eras of Cupernicus and Galileo. I was quite impressed by the volume. I came away from my complete read of the volume with the

attitude that it should be considered a legitimate book of the

Bible. Enoch's prayer in Chapter 84 is on the same level as the

Lord's Prayer of the New Testiment. Now I am wondering what else

has been either left out or removed from the Bible.....? I shall definitely be purchasing other volumes from Amazon to try to

answer that question.

I have read this book several times. Written over a period of several years by my good friend Ronald K. Brown. This carefully detailed work will amaze you. It is one of the few of books of God's word on the mysteries of the universe, and wonders of our ancient world. The Book of Enoch, ties in the prehistoric origins to our modern times. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to know more about this amazing prophet, for Enoch's story is far from over. He is destined to be one of the 2 witnesses (Elijah is the other) to come back in the end times.

1.If this book is as old as Brown says, or is even just older than Jesus...
2.And the text is translated fairly accurately...
then I believe that this text is the real deal. There are many reasons to believe this. First of all, it is referred to in the book of Jude 14,15. This leads me to believe that the text was probably important all the way to around 65-70 A.D.
According to Brown, the only complete original text is written in Ethiopian script, and dates to being older than Job (the oldest text of the bible).
Keeping all this in mind, when you actually grasp what's in the text, you may be quite shocked.
ENOCH 48:2 and in that hour the Son of Man was named...
ENOCH 48:4 ...And he shall be the light of the Gentiles...
ENOCH 50:3 ...through His name they shall be saved...
and check out this verse that ties to Rev 12:1-6...
ENOCH 62:4 Then pain shall come on them as on a woman in travail, and she has pain in bringing forth
When her child enters the mouth of the womb,
And she has pain in bringing forth.(62:5) And one portion of them shall look on the other, And they shall be terrified, And they shall be downcast of countenance, And pain shall seize them, when they see that the Son of Man Sitting of the throne of his glory.
Wow! And that aint the half of it! This book looks to me like it is the brige between Genesis and Revelation. I didn't even get into all of the fallen angel business in this review. Buy this book. It's either the real thing, or its not. Take it as you will.
