Item description for Commentary on the Book of Enoch by John D. Ladd...
Overview Product Description Fifty years after James Bruce brought a copy of the Book of Enoch, found in Ethiopia, to England, Richard Laurence made a first modern translation. Later, R.H. Charles made another translation using some Greek excerpts, and more Ethiopian texts. Then recently, Michael A Knibb, using many texts, and partial texts, put together an ?adequate' translation. Yet, all of these translations are rough, obscure, and confusing to Christians of today. The Dead Sea Scrolls contained many copies and partial copies of the Book of Enoch, In the Dead Sea scrolls, there were found 17 copies. Comparitively, there were 30 copies of Psalms, 25 copies of Deuteronomy, 19 of Isaiah, 15 of Genesis and Exodus, 14 Of Jubilees. Jude validated The Book Of Enoch with his quote from it. Using all of the sources now available, along with an in-depth study of book, I have prepared this paraphrase/translation. Along with such, I have included an commentary to help in its comparison with the Bible. John D. Ladd was raised the son of an Assemblies of God pastor. He attended Northeast Bible College, in Pennsylvania, and later, Malone College, in Canton, Ohio. He pastored for many years, was ordained in the Assemblies of God, but later left to pastor independent churches. Preferring teaching to preaching, he has spent many years studying, reading books from the early church period, and translating\paraphrasing them for ease of use by Christians of today. This book of Enoch's has been translated, paraphrased, and now is being given commentary, to compare it with the Bible's message, to test it by the Word of God. How does it compare? Is it in agreement with the message and prophetic teachings of the Bible?

This book is hard to put down!! May 11, 2010
This is by far one of the best books I've read about Enoch. John Ladd did an excellent job on his commentaries for many of the chapters of Enoch and keep in mind there are over a 100 chapters of the book of Enoch. And I love how he cross referenced scriptures from the Bible to proof its worth. Also at the beginning you will have a better understanding on why the book wasn't added to the Bible. Hint..early church was forced to choose between the Book of Enoch or Book of Revelation. I'm half way through this book and I've learned so much about the Lord and how powerful and awesome and just He is in all His ways. I'm in awe of this book and now have a better understanding on how everything started and where it will end up. I'm so glad Jesus saved me and set me free so I won't have to face His judgement. Thank you Jesus! Come quickly!!
Commentary on the Book of Enoch Apr 29, 2010
Obviously self-published. Terrible typesetting and formating. No commentary on some of the more interesting questions I was interested in.
