4.0 out of 5 stars Spurious and Fabulous Stories 7 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The 1st thing to recognise is that these stories may not be true, The writer discribes them as either spurious or fabulous! With that context in mind I read the stories and found them immensly enjoyable. Especially the story of Adam and Eve and how they tried to ghet back into the garden of Eden, along with the desciption of their great love for one another and their eventual death, absolutely wonderful.

I finshed the book on my kindle last night and I was actually dissapointed that I had finished the book as I wanted MORE. I feel complelled to read more of the original text now. More of this please.

Could have done with a few more of these legends. They were quite interesting although there was no real connection to Scripture.

3.0 out of 5 stars Believe it if you like! 2 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It is easy to understand why these stories never made it into the Canon of scripture. More folk tales than history.

3.0 out of 5 stars For real fans of M R James 20 Oct 2013
By JEH
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is for real addicts of M R James, like me. It gives an insight into another aspect of the life and interests of the master writer of the English ghost story.

3.0 out of 5 stars OT Legends
Although obviously folk lore stories, they give an more insight into many of the OT characters - not always believable but still good yarns
