    1 star1 star1 star1 starNo star    Recommended

    This book contains 26 literary works from the early Christian Church. These "books" were extant in the early Church, but when the New Testament was officially organized into Canon Scripture (officially accepted books), these were among those left behind. This book was originally published in 1890, reprinted in 1926, and again in 1979.

    As one might expect with any collection of stories, this one is a mixed bag of good and bad stories. Some of these works are long and tedious, while some are short and don't seem to contain anything new. However, all of them allow a fascinating glimpse into the thoughts of various factions within the early Church.

    Personally, I enjoyed The Epistles of Paul the Apostle to Seneca, with Seneca's to Paul, and the Epistles of Clement. I highly enjoyed this book and recommend it to you.

    I would imagine that, after reading this book, the similarity between myth and current belief would be clearer; but I guess this isn't the case. It seems obvious why these books were eliminated from the Bible: in "Infancy I", Jesus is portrayed as an ancient version of Carrie. This and other examples show what nonsense second-rate mythologers can create, as opposed to the more interesting tales spun by first-rate storytellers.

    As I read these books I am awed by the power to tell a story. How dry as a desert, Adam and Eve's tale was until it sank in that this isn't a fable in some never-never land. This is as real as real can be. I thank God that I never had to go through what they did. I also thank God that He has the authority to reissue HIS books without the need to resurect the dead for their permission or that of the false prophets who gained authority over the original issue in spite of those long dead ancients. John S. Leiren
