Overview

The Book Of Enoch by R.H. Charles

The apocryphal Book of Enoch, suppressed by the Church and then lost for many centuries, is believed to have been written in the first century or earlier. This edition-translated by British biblical scholar R. H. CHARLES (1855-1931) and first published in 1917-tells the story of the fallen angels, who appeal to Enoch the Prophet, great-grandson of Noah, to speak with God on their behalf after He banishes them from heaven.

Enoch travels to heaven, describing what he sees there in detail, and speaks with the angels and ponders their nature. The book, in its original Hebrew or Aramaic, is believed to have influenced the writers of the New Testament, and while not considered canonical scripture, its apocalyptic themes continue to be highly influential today in modern popular Christian End Times fantasy, such as the Left Behind series.

Students of the Bible who wish to explore related texts and those interested in foundational apocalyptic literature will find this book essential reading.

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.

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.

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.
