Translated and compiled in 1926 by esteemed scholar Rutherford Hayes Platt, The Forgotten Books of Eden is a beautiful collection of apocrypha and pseudepigrapha that is sure to enrich and deepen your appreciation of the Biblical canon. Though these stories, for whatever reason, were excluded from The Bible by its original compilers, they were written alongside the texts we've come to know and love so well.

Among the many books included in this collection are: The First and Second Books of Adam and EveThe Secrets of EnochThe Psalms of SolomonThe Odes of SolomonThe Letter of AristeasThe Fourth Book of MaccabeesAnd numerous othersAlthough it's certainly no substitute for The Word itself, The Forgotten Books of Eden enhances and expands on The Old Testament and will lead you to new insights and a deeper understanding of your faith.
Die junge, couragierte Anne von Seydlitz ist der Verzweiflung nahe, als ihr Mann, ein Münchner Kunsthändler, bei einem mysteriösen Autounfall ums Leben kommt. Das einzige, was ihr bleibt, ist ein Film, dessen Aufnahmen alle dasselbe Motiv zeigen: ein Pergament mit einer alten koptischen Inschrift. Bald wird Anne klar, dass dieses Schriftstück ein Geheimnis birgt, denn für das Original wird ein phantastischer Preis geboten. Die Suche nach dem verschwundenen Pergament führt sie nach Paris, wo gerade ein amerikanischer Professor in die Schlagzeilen geraten ist, der einen scheinbar völlig unmotivierten Säureanschlag auf ein Bild von Leonardo da Vinci verübt hat ...

GEDLA ADAM: The Combat of Adam Against Satan; The [Ethiopic] Book of Adam and Eve, is also known as The Conflict of Adam and Eve with Satan is a Christian pseudepigraphical work found in Ge'ez. It was first translated from the Ge'ez Ethiopic version into German by August Dillmann. It was first translated into English by S. C. Malan from the German of Ernest Trumpp. The first half of Malan's translation is included as the "First Book of Adam and Eve" and the "Second Book of Adam and Eve" in The Lost Books of the Bible and the Forgotten Books of Eden. The Books mentioned below were added by Malan to his English translation; the Ethiopic is divided into sections of varying length, each dealing with a different subject. Books 1 and 2 begin immediately after the expulsion from the Garden of Eden, and end with the testament and translation of Enoch. Great emphasis is placed in Book 1 on Adam's sorrow and helplessness in the world outside the garden.

Der vorliegende Kommentar des 1945 in Nag Hammadi entdeckten Thomas-Evangeliums besteht aus einer Einleitung, Kriterien für die Erforschung des historischen Jesus sowie einer ausführlichen Kommentierung aller 114 Logien des Thomas-Evangeliums. Er tritt der Behauptung einer gnostischen Herkunft der Logien entgegen und widerspricht auch der Abhängigkeit des Thomas-Evangeliums von den Synoptikern oder auch dem Johannes-Evangelium. Das Thomas-Evangelium enthält vielmehr gegenüber den Synoptikern und dem Johannes-Evangelium selbstständige Traditionen und gehört in den Raum eines frühen Judenchristentums.

This novella passes on knowledge as a reminder to be a conscious being. The memoir begins with a catalyst that possessed me on my soul journey. It happened at a Bob Marley and The Wailers reggae concert in Sydney, Australia, in 1979, when I was fifteen. The hypnotic music, lyrics, Rastafarian culture, and herbs of wisdom had the effect of heightening my states of consciousness. This powerful experience led me to explore. In order to try to understand this force I had to go back to my roots, my family history. I began to examine and place pieces of my life together like a jigsaw puzzle. I took a physical outward journey in a time when there was no instant society. I traveled to the Caribbean and beyond, where I encountered and reasoned with Rastafarians. Simultaneously, I discovered I was on an inward spiritual journey that was growing in strength through biblical and metaphysical readings. I was transforming my existence and my way of life—metamorphism. As an enlightened spirit in the flesh—now with a child to rear—I had to share this wisdom. I had discovered the essence of faith, and I endeavored to not get caught up in the Babylonian system and the cycles of a routine life. The grass isn’t always greener on the other side—it just may be a bit different. This is a thought provoking and deeply personal story.
