Overview


R. H. Charles provides a definitive translation of one of the most noted apocalyptic works still in existence. Often described as "the lost book" of the Bible, The Book of Enoch seems to have been written in Palestine by several different authors in the first and second centuries B.C. For hundreds of years it was accepted by the early church fathers, but it was rejected by the council of Laodicea in A.D. 364. Today, it remains a written remnant of the Apocalypse—an ardent testament to hope and the triumph of good over evil in the dawning of a world to come. Rife with concepts of original sin, fallen angels, demonology, resurrection, and the last judgment, it is a vital document to the origins of Christianity.
The Book of Enoch is comprised of various monumental works: The Book of Enoch, The Parables, The Book of the Courses of the Heavenly Luminaries, The Dream Visions, The Concluding Section, and The Noah Fragments. Each work is independent, but all the works are bound by a common theme: the punishment of the wicked and the blessedness of the righteous. This edition, complete with analysis and notes, is an indispensable resource for the study and understanding of both the Old and New Testaments.

    Really Interesting

    This was a very interesting read. This is now definately one of my favorite books. Goes into detail about the Nephilim mentioned in the Bible and a lot of Revelation-like prophecy, mirroring Revelation in many places and even adding many other details. Fairly easy reading for the most part. It goes by very fast. Only thing I might recommend is getting a study version of this to help explain some parts throughout the book.

    A wonderful book

    Overall, I would give this book high marks. I would disagree with the assessment of the Rev W>O>E> Osterley, DD which must mean deeper, and deeper, in his assessment of Enoch's Book of the Courses of the Heavenly Luminaries and lxxx which is uninteresting in the extreme. I read every word and tried to imagine how Enoch saw it, how he measured it, and how he kept a record of it. For some unknown resaon, ancient stone circles kept flashing in my mind as I was imagining the Mid-points and Solstices, the high points, and the low points. One has to remember that Enoch was a man of long ago, probably alone on his ass outside of town in the open desert watching and trying to determine the course of the oblects as well as, perhaps zodiacal signs when storm winds could have been predicted or coming cold weather could have been foreseen. He did do one thing very contrary to popular belief and that is that he did, indeed, hide from the internet. The thing is, he wasn't afraid to try to expand his intellectual horizons and God would have been pleased with that, Read this book. It isn't going to bit you. You are going to really like it if you think of the context when and how it was written. Granted, we now read revisions, of revisions and call each new one definitive. Read this and take some real pleasure out of the way the ancients thought.

    Such a Biblical Book!

    Indeed, such a book to have in this present time instead of its dissappearence which almost took place thousands of years ago, is an honour among many to possess it. For one thing, it's so inspiring that ounce you've put this book down, you'd feel as if the tour through heaven were just for you! With that said, I recommend this osim book.
