Overview

This 2006 trade paper edition includes a new chapter about the recently discovered Gospel of Judas.Ancient scriptures, hidden from the world for centuries, have recently attracted unprecented popular attention. Some were found among the ancient library of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Others include assorted mystical writings known as Kabbalah, and a host of books that never made it into the Bible, called Apocrypha (which means "hidden") and the Pseudepigrapha (called "false writings" by those who suppressed them). Additionally, there are the Gnostic texts of Nag Hammadi-a location in Egypt where a treasure trove of lost books was discovered in the middle of the twentieth century. Collectively, they comprise the "Lost Bible." For centuries, these manuscripts were systematically suppressed because their liberating messages of individual power and worth challenged the authority and pet philosophies of political and religious leaders.In "Secrets from the Lost Bible", Hebrew scholar Kenneth Hanson discovers common truths within these sacred books, truths that humankind appears destined to learn at this stage of our development. Hanson uncovers parallels and offers readers a clear interpretation of these sacred writings, hidden truths that, once grasped, can help us reach our fullest potential.

    Not what I expected

    I saw the author on several History Channel shows and picked up the book because it sounded intriguing. Unfortunately, I quickly tired of the authors paraphrasing...even of Bible passages. While there is a lot to be learned here and some thought provoking material, I kept getting the same feeling I got when I read L. Ron Hubbard's 'Dianetics' many years ago. All the euphamisms for God (The Eternal, The Supreme, etc.) made me wonder if there wasn't some other motive afoot.

    Long on opinion, short on content

    This book I thought would have more emperical data on the history of the actual Bible scrolls and the history of why certain writing were included and other not also including the cultural influences of the time. Instead this is almost a translation of lost scrolls (a very loose almost slang authors translation) of what he interprets these lost scrolls to mean. This is more a book that would support you if you are just looking for an emotional kickstand to refute the Bible and you don't care if its based in any fact. Very poorly written and even less useful information.
