Though apocryphal in nature, these books--suppressed by the Church Fathers--are fascinating and beautifully written. Here you can read for yourself many of the manuscripts which were excluded form the Cannon of Scripture, and discover new appreciation for those which were chosen. Now in tradepaper!

Still working through this one. A great addition to the bible and the gnostic scriptures. ( )

Fascinating collection of apocryphal and pseudepigraphical works that are no longer canon in most modern Bibles. It would be useful to have a bit more information and background provided about the works, as well as information about the English translations, but I think this book's goal is simply to provide the works, with minimal commentary (there is some comment at the beginning of each work), and let the readers experience it for themselves. Definitely of interest for those who enjoy religious studies, religious history, early Christianity, and so forth. ( )
