Publishers Description
The value of The Book of Jasher is seen in the large quantity of additional detail revealed from the period between divine creation and the time of Joshua's leadership over Israel when the Israelites enter into the land of Canaan. The Book of Jasher includes details about the antediluvian patriarchs, angels, watchers, the flood, the tower of Babel, and many other events mentioned in the Bible. The tales are expanded and infused with detail not previously available. This means we receive insight into the lives of Abraham, Noah, Enoch, Joseph, and many other biblical figures. We come to understand how they became great and why they acted as they did. We are also given hitherto unknown knowledge of historical events. We are shown how God's hand shaped history through his love and anger. We see how his disappointment with men and angels ended in earth's near total destruction.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Book of Jasher - The J. H. Parry Text In Modern English?

A Nice Addition  Feb 26, 2008
There are a few books written about the time between Creation and Exodus. These books form the foundation of most books about Angels, Demons, Watchers, Fallen Ones, and other such stories. Instead of reading the "spin offs" I thought it better to read the books making up this body of knowledge. The Book Of Jasher is one of the handful of ancient books, which include The Lost Book of Enoch, and The Book of Jubilees. I am glad I took the time. I am also happy I chose this translation. It was a smooth read. The author did a commendable in this translation.
 
A Good, Solid Translation  Feb 26, 2008
Whether one agrees that the Book of Jasher is real and authoritative or not, one must acknowledge that Lumpkin has produced a great translation. This is a wonderfully readable version written to the modern audience. I would also recommend his other translations as well. The Lost Book of Enoch, Jubilees, and the Gnostic Gospels. All are examples of simple, direct, and understandable writing.
 
Beware Christians!  Feb 23, 2008
It is sad that a man who claims to be Christian can lead others down the wrong path. This is not the same book mentioned in the Bible. People please take note----The book of Jashar does not exist any longer and is a forgery of the same title. Lumpkin is just cashing in on people's lack of research on the book. Do your research on the book. This book was written by some fool hundreds of years ago and people have retranslated it passing it off like it is the real thing. Beware of false prophets and read your Bible.
 
A New View - A Fresh Translation  May 2, 2006
This version is a breath of fresh air. It is written and edited for the modern reader. Sometimes it is difficult to see through archaic language and into the meaning of a text, but this one is clear. It is written in more tightly formed and informative phasing, more suited to modern style. Some translators seem to take delight in obscuring their work with Elizabethan or "King James" English to make themselves and their books sound more authoritative and important. To the reader of today, these old idioms are useless frills. This translation is clear, direct, and well written, while keeping to the original meaning of the text. I highly recommend it.
I would also recommend Lumpkin's work on The Lost Book of Enoch, Jubilees, and the Gnostic Gospels of Philip, Mary Magdalene, and Thomas. He also has a very odd and interesting translation of the Tao Te Ching available.
