Overview

The Bible, as we hold it today, is esteemed by many religious institutions and especially Conservative Christians to be the inspired, inerrant Word of God. This doctrinal position affirms that the Bible is unlike all other books or collections of works in that it is free of error due to having been “given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works” (2 Tim. 3:16, 17).

While no other text can claim this same unique authority, Apocryphal and Pseudepigraphal literature such as contained in the Book of Jasher, provides literature that often precedes or follows the chronology of biblical texts, which frequently are used or assigned as supplemental works within academic settings to help students and scholars discover or better understand cultural and historical context within the Word of God. Whether or not the information contained in the apocryphal literature is entirely precise—as is the canon of Scripture—these ancient texts provide commentators’ valuable insight into what many ancient Jews and early Christians believed when, “God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets” (Heb. 1:1).

The Book of Jasher is a mostly forgotten text referred to in the Bible in Joshua 10:13 and 2 Samuel 1:18. It provides exceptional details which no other ancient text is as unequivocal about concerning what appears to be astonishing descriptions of advanced biotechnology, genetic engineering, and transgenic modification of species as was later mirrored in Greek Mythology.

This book will not open on a Nook. Don't bother with it.

The book opened fine at first, but i found that if I read something else and come back to it, it won't open. If I wait a day or so and try to open it again, it will open right up to where I left off. The glitch needs to be fixed. Otherwise a very insightful read.

This WILL NOT open on Nook! Of course, had I read the reviews first I could have saved the $1 I wasted, but it was just $1. Refund? It would be nice :)

No it's not the Bible but it is an interesting companion to it. This book is mentioned twice in scripture. in Joshua 10:13 and II Samuel 1:18 I really think you'll enjoy it.
