I bought about 15 copies of the book after reading the first one, and gave them away to my friends. Really two books republished as one, I read the Book of Adam & Eve in the latter part first. As most people don't realize that the Bible is a compilation of various texts into one convenient book, Lost Books of the Bible serve to inform how certain scriptures and letters made it into the Bible in the first place. LDS readers, very familiar with many scriptural commentaries, will find the book extremely informative. 2/3 of the writing included here really clarify much of what is held as confusing in the current bible. Read it with an open mind and gain knowledge. Warning: Macabbees is gruesome and gory.

Excellent resource for those interested in researching ancient texts considered as reliable by second and third century Christians. Before the Synod of Laodicea canonized what is the Holy Bible of today, these texts were widely circulated and read.
