Enoch, Jasher, and Jubilees in a single volume Mar 29, 2006
This book contains the wonderful translations of The Lost Book Of Enoch and the Book of Jubilees done by Lumpkin as well as a new translation of the Book of Jasher. It is the best of these three books in a single volume I have seen. I have not been able to find his translation of the Book of Jasher as a seperate book yet, so this may be the only way to get it.
Lumpkin's Translation of the Book Of Enoch is the best I have read. His work with Jubilees is quite good also. The translation of the Book of Jasher seems to be simply a modern rendition of previously published works. It is much clearer and easier to read but does not cover much new ground. These can be bought as a single work. Obviously, this volume is a better buy as compared to seperate books.
I highly recommend Lumpkin's work for anyone wishing to reach beyond the Bible or study the Pseudepigrapha or Apocryphal writings of the Old Tesament. He has also done work with the New Testament Apocryphal books and Gnostic gospels of Thomas, Philip, and Mary of Magdala, as well as a very odd translation of the Tao Te Ching.
