Overview

The KJV Apocrypha in a single volume. The Apocrypha ('hidden things') are contemporaneous with the Old Testament, but were not officially accepted as part of the Bible when the Hebrew 'canon' was set. They did, however, form part of the Greek Scriptures and came into English Bibles by that route. The writings of the Apocrypha run the whole gamut of literary genres: histories, romances, devotional works, proverbs and sermons. Many complement parts of the Old Testament and readers will recognise some familiar Biblical characters in the narratives, such as Daniel and Esther.

In your searches and conversations have you ever heard mention of books from the old testament of the bible you didn't even know existed? It's rather troublesome to read verses from books that you can't even refer to in your own bible. After the Protestant Reformation, the new fathers of the new church wanted a new (more exact) bible for their practitioners to read, so they threw out the books of the old testament that no longer existed in their original Hebrew, even though they still existed in Greek or Aramaic copies. They even threw out books that were still around in Hebrew when St. Jerome translated the first Latin bible, the Vulgate, in 405. The APOCRYPHA restores those lost books to your bible. This particular book is the original King James Version without the usual lengthy commentaries ad nauseam. This is a tiny volume of the texts themselves without any expensive frills.
