Item Description...
Discover the "hidden" texts of the Old Testament Apocrypha and expand your knowledge of the world of the Bible. Many people are unfamiliar with the books of the Apocrypha but are now beginning to appreciate the influence these secondary writings have had in art, literature, and theology. Those already familiar with the Apocrypha may want this single slim volume to supplement a Bible that does not contain them.

The KJV Apocrypha in a single volume. The Apocrypha ('hidden things') are contemporaneous with the Old Testament, but were not officially accepted as part of the Bible when the Hebrew 'canon' was set. They did, however, form part of the Greek Scriptures and came into English Bibles by that route. The writings of the Apocrypha run the whole gamut of literary genres: histories, romances, devotional works, proverbs and sermons. Many complement parts of the Old Testament and readers will recognize some familiar Biblical characters in the narratives, such as Daniel and Esther.

About this version of the KJV Apocrypha...  Aug 6, 2004
Easy to read typeset...two-column pages...very nicely bound.

This is an interesting addition to your religious reference library.
 
Bottom of the line Apocrypha.  Feb 13, 2002
The Bible I use-King James Version, by the way--doesn't have an Apocrypha in it, so I decided to pick up this copy, partly because this edition was the KJV version, and partly because it matched the size of my Bible. I'm in to the Bible so I am curious about anything and everything associated with the Book of Books. I find the canonization process to absolutely fascinating. Moreover, Thomas Aquinas, my favorite philosopher, frequently cites Apocryphal books in his writings, so it followed as a matter of course that I would want to get this book.

This is a "bottom of the line" version of the Apocrypha. So it just has a table of contents, the text, and nothing else. There is no introductory essay or background material to help understand why the Apocrypha was left in or left out various editions of the Bible. There aren't any footnotes or an index, either.

On the nicer side, the cover is a nice fire engine red, and the printing is wonderful-I haven't found any typos, or faded text. So this review isn't a complete slam. Moreover, since I relish Shakespeare, I also have an affinity for the King James Translation. It just seems authoritative, like when you read the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution!

For more user-friendly version of the Apocrypha, I would recommend the Godspeed Translation, which has a modern English style, along the lines of the J. B. Phillips translation. The Cambridge NRSV Apocrypha has almost every conceivable Apocryphal book, such as Psalm 151, 3 and 4 Maccabees, and it is done in modern English style.

The Apocrypha is a fun book. Yes, theology is fun, since it is a form of learning. You a given a better perspective on how things went between Malachi and Matthew, and are exposed to profound wisdom literature. If you like proverbs, read "The Wisdom of Solomon," or "Eccelsiasticus, or the Wisdom of Jesus, son of Sirach." My favorite book is Tobit, which has a wonderful Orphic love story.

 
Clarification  Mar 26, 2000
This is for those of you who may think that the Bible is complete, It is not, which is pointed out in the Bible in the Bible Dictionary under the topic of the Lost Books. "...The forgoing items attest to the fact that our present Bible does not contain all of the word of the Lord that he gave to his people in former times, and remind us that the Bible, in its present form is rather incomplete." As far as these books included in the Apocrypha are concerned, they are to be taken with a grain of salt so to speak. My reason for saying this is that as a Latter Day Saint (Mormon), I have revelation from a modern day prophet found in Doctrine and Covenants Section 91 that states the Apocrypha is mostly translated correctly, but contains many interpolations by the hands of men that are not true. However it benefits those enlightened by the Spirit. Yes the book is good and should be read by any who are curious and those who are ready to know.
