This new edition of The Book of Enoch, banned by Christian authorities and thought lost for millennia, features a new introduction by bestselling author and expert on mysticism and the occult, Lon Milo DuQuette. "The Book of Enoch is important more for what it is rather than for what it says," explains DuQuette." It could be argued that it, more than any other single document, is responsible for western civilization's most dangerous and nightmarish neurosis -- war in heaven, fallen angels, heaven and hell."
This superlative translation by noted scholar and theologian R.H. Charles is one of the best and most complete available. An introduction by noted esoteric scholar and antiquarian bookseller, R. A. Gilbert, places The Book of Enoch in historical context and dispels many of the dubious interpretations previously attributed to it.
The Book of Enoch's vision of the Apocalypse takes a very different view than that of western Christians, although it is part of the biblical canon for Ethiopian and Eretrean Christians. According to Enoch, the wicked shall be cast out and the good will realize a literal heaven on Earth. The prophecies also contain the lost "Book of Noah," early references to a messiah as "Christ," and an accounting of the angels and subsequent creation of demons.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I was pleasantly surprised with it's inclusion of multiple manuscripts for a self comparison. however, a couple things were confusing, such as when it includes something only found in a specific manuscript. it seems that without the inclusion, the sentence is missing something in other manuscripts. what i mean by this is that there is not an indepth side by side analysis, except for more signficant variances, which takes away from the overall punch. and, i wasn't clear on exactly what they meant by corrupt text; by what standard did they determine that it was a corruption? Also, the commentary was respectable and historically faithful, however some of the opinions provided i did not agree with. I have come upon the conclusion that the book of enoch is inspired, and they claim that it contradicts Revelation of John's view of heaven. I don't believe there is a problem, my biggest issue with this book. Other than that, great book! The problems weren't that bad, and it's an affordable and very fair price to own one of the most important books ever written, which lead to me giving it a 4 for it's richness in the text, rather than the opinions and history lesson.
