It is written that the patriarch Enoch "walked with God; and he was not, for God took him" (Gen 5:24). A strange body of writings grew up around this mysterious figure who never died, writings which were eventually collected in the Book of Enoch. Once highly regarded by both Jew and Christians, The Book of Enoch is indispensable reading for all students of early Judaism and the beginnings of Christianity. This new translation is the only one which takes into account all of the available manuscript evidence. It features a fluent, natural English style, has full cross-references between the Bible and Enoch and to the various parts of Enoch. Includes convenient notes and commentary.
