The only reason for the negative review is that you should buy his other book and not this one. The author has basically the SAME book titled "The Encyclopedia of Lost and Rejected Scriptures" which is newer, has added material and for the same price. If you compare the two side by side you will see it is word for word the same book. If your going to get this book get the newer book for the same price with the added chapters. Not a lot of extra material - but if your going to buy this book get the newer one for the same price.

This book features many of the books that never made the bible. It's quite interesting and translated in a way that makes it easy to understand. The 1st & 2nd books of Adam & Eve are quite interesting to say the least. You get to see what happened after they were kicked out of the Garden of Eden. Plus, the Book of Jasher is very interesting. It's like Genesis only with more details. The stories of Noah's ark and Cain's murder of Abel are explained with more details and information. You'll find out exactly how Cain murdered his brother Abel. Oh, and Acts chapter 29 is revealed. The only reason why I gave this book 4 stars instead of five is because it failed to include the "Gospel of the Infancy of Jesus Christ" which depicts Jesus' childhood. Other than that, this is a great book and I do recommend it.

Excellent research and study. A fascinating discovery of antiquity as a prologue to the Old and New Testaments. A small glimpse, as God allows His mysteries to reveal a rough draft of "In the Beginning." These lost books give us a peek at the characters before they were characters. Before JC and the boys, if you will, but straight from God. The author puts together an alarming amount of material together. Too much I gather, in fact I believe it might be ready for a leather edition or even a break down into volumes because it is a very heavy (physically) book. The print or text is rather small, one will need reading glasses. This printing needs to open up like the Bible. So publishers we need to work on the binding. It does not open flat like the Bible for reading and studying. There are a lot of WOW! moments. That is Holy Spirit revelations. It does bring a smile to your face and to some of us a tear (joy) as well. It is interesting, provocative, with more psalms and proverbs to dwell on and sincerely moving and spiritually inspirational. Devotionally appealing.

This book has everything in it that I needed for my research. Those were Books of Eli and Jasher, so the others were an added benefit. The introduction tells about each book and where it is referenced in the Holy Bible, except for the ones on Adam and Eve. This book was a surprise and explained how it came about, which is really based on Jewish 'folklore'. Penned around the 3rd century, AD, it gives one pause to take every word as total truth, but quite interesting. I am happy with this purchase.

It is amazing to consider that the early church had a massive collection of documents that they considered scripture before the Council of Hippo. And the entire protestant faith has never even considered re-discovering the documents to determine if the Catholic church has left certain books out (Enoch, Jubilees) only to hide certain issues from history.

Just my opinion.

This is the 2nd Joseph Lumpkin Book that I have purchased and I LOVE IT. It is a great one volume on the most popular books that were left out of the bible. His information and notes are very helpful in describing the ancient texts, how they were found, why they weren't included in the Bible, and etc. I would highly recommend this purchase.

This is an awesome selection of books, each of them prefaced with very useful information. Sadly, the kindle edition has a TOC, but it isn't hyperlinked. The reader has to create his own notes to guide him through a very big book.

Up to Section Three the book is excellent, but beginning at that point, the text is grayed out and inpossible to read. It's there but almost the same color as the background.
