Well you think you know the bible in its entirety well think again. I can now see why they did not add these extra books which was part of the original bible. This must be part of Hebrews collection when buying books. Our history is in the bible and this book.

Completely missing The Zadokite Fragments, other than that, it's a priceless resource!

HASH(0x94a15c00) out of 5 stars Classic Work -- Essential to any collection on the subject 11 Feb. 2007
By sbh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The terms "apocrypha" and "pseudepigrapha" refer to two somewhat vaguely-defined groups of ancient writings. Ordinarily the "Apocrypha" are fourteen books or parts of books found in a section by themselves in Protestant Bibles. The Pseudepigrapha are other ancient books related to the Bible but not included in it. This division breaks down readily; most of the Apocrypha are included in Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Bibles, and some of the Pseudepigrapha appear in the Ethiopic Bible. This volume mainly contains the Pseudepigrapha--although it omits III Maccabees and includes IV Ezra, the latter being part of the Apocrypha.

As this collection was originally published in 1913, it does not take account of later scholarship and discoveries. Other than that minor limitation, the work has proved its worth and continues to be useful to this day. Charlesworth's Old Testament Pseudepigrapha is a larger and more current collection, but it by no means entirely supplants Charles.

This volume contains translations and commentaries on **Jubilees, **the Letter of Aristeas, **the Books of Adam and Eve, **the Martyrdom of Isaiah, *I Enoch, *Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs, (selected) *Sibylline Oracles, *The Assumption of Moses, *II Enoch, *II Baruch, *III Baruch, *IV Ezra, the **Psalms of Solomon, **IV Maccabees, Pirke Aboth, **Ahiqar, and Fragments of a Zadokite Work. (Titles with a single star appear in the first volume of Charlesworth; those with two stars appear in the second.)

Certain works--most notably II Enoch, the Assumption of Moses, and the Sibylline Oracles--appear here in an abbreviated form. The most significant omission, perhaps, is the Odes of Solomon.
