Book of Enoch the Prophet by Richard Laurence

This is a reprint of the Apocryphal Book of Enoch: The Prophet which was first discovered in Abyssinia in the year 1773 by a Scottish explorer named James Bruce. Bruce, a sort of 18th century Indiana Jones, may have seen the Ark of Covenant at Axum, and was able to obtain the ancient Coptic Christian text, approximately 2000 years old. In 1821 The Book of Enoch was translated by Richard Laurence and published in a number of successive editions, culminating in the 1883 edition. Like the Dead Sea Scrolls, or the Nag Hammadi Library, the Book of Enoch, translated from the original Ethiopian Coptic script, is a rare book that was suppressed by the early church and thought destroyed. Today it is back in print in this expanded, deluxe edition, using the original 1883 revised text.
