Biographie de l'auteur

Every Christian sect from the fourth century to the present period, have been blessed with the books that climbed upon the communion-table, and in consequence were deemed inspired and canonical; at the same time have been forbidden to read the Gospels and Epistles herein published, because they could not perform the same feat, but remained under the table, and were condemned accordingly, as uninspired and apocryphal writings. If you believe this popish legend, you will not read the good books I lay before you, but still continue to possess only HALF THE TESTAMENT, instead of the PERFECT ONE, which will enable you to burst the trammels of priestcraft, and by the light of God’s whole truth become free. In conclusion, I implore you to examine for yourselves, and observe the testimony of Archbishop Wake and other learned divines and historians appended thereto; and subscribe myself, Your well-wisher, EDWARD HANCOCK

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Important Christian Texts, Very Bad Title and Preface 10 décembre 2010
Par David deSilva - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This is a collection of early Christian apocrypha and pseudepigrapha, such as the "Acts of Paul and Thecla," the "Protevangelion of James," and the like, also including the "Apostolic Fathers," namely the letters of Clement of Rome (c. 96 CE), Ignatius of Antioch (d. 113 CE), and Polcarp of Smyrna (c. 113 CE for his letter; d. circa 150 CE). These texts, written for the most part in the ante-Nicene period, are of tremendous importance for the understanding of the development of the Christian movement and its theology, ethics, practice, and relationship with the surrounding society. I recommend to all my students that they familiarize themselves with this literature.

However, these texts were NEVER part of the "original" New Testament, if such a thing could even be said to have existed prior to the 4th c. CE. They were never "forbidden," either. The letters of Polycarp, Clement, and Ignatius, together with the apocalypse known as the "Shepherd of Hermas," were read and valued in the early church. They were never "excluded" from the New Testament, for the simple reason that they were never "included" in the first place. It is true that some reading communities accorded some of these books equal or near-equal status with the NT (for example, Codex Sinaiticus contains both Hermas and the Epistle of Barnabas after the books of the New Testament), but this was not the common practice of the majority of churches, and so did not become standard. The author of the preface writes in a misleading, sensationalist tone, suggesting some grand conspiracy theory to suppress these texts. This is a gross misrepresentation of the historical process of canon-formation.

The absence of a table of contents with links to the starts of each text is a serious drawback -- but it's also a free download, so who am I to be picky?

2.0 étoiles sur 5 where he is like a young Superboy that doesn't know his own powers 30 octobre 2014
Par PhillyJoeC - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The forbidden aspect draws the reader in. These are well researched, mostly Gnostic gospels, and for the most part to do not fit the theology of the New Testament. Some are fanciful folk speculations of Jesus's childhood, where he is like a young Superboy that doesn't know his own powers. Some are considered secondary books of the New Testament and follow orthodox belief. Now that I think of it they probably were forbidden in their time, not because they contained some hidden truth- but because they differed markedly from the Judeo-Christian understanding of God, Creation, Sin and Redemption.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting 25 mai 2013

It was an interesting read about things not in the Old or New Testaments. I particulary liked the book of Mary, telling about her childhood and parents and also about Jesus's childhood that is skipped in the New Testament. The rest I'm not so sure of.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Bad premise 1 septembre 2013
Par Debbie G. - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I picked this book because it was suppose to have The Book of Enoch in it. It did not. Strike one. The author and the writer of the preface think these books should have been included with the canonical books. There is a reason that these books didn't make the "cut" as being scripture. They just aren't very good compared to scripture.* Strike two. There is no reference as to when the books were written, who was the author or any other scholarly information normally associated with the study of ancient literature. Strike three.

* much more could be said about their content, I just don't want to take the time.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 For the inquisitive Christian reader 26 mars 2015
Par JT - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Always knew there were other books not included, but did not know it was this many. From my reading I am able to grasp where other theological beliefs are derived. It increases my overall understanding of the bible, enhances my knowledge base and in some ways answer questions and adds meaning to that I already know. Although not in today's Bible, these are a must read for the inquisitive Christian believers. You don't know what you don't know until you learn for yourself! More knowledge is sometimes powerful, but at least you will know more than you know today!
