The Book of Enoch the Prophet: (with introductions by R. A. Gilbert and Lon Milo DuQuette) (Paperback)
This superlative translation by noted scholar and theologian R. H. Charles is one of the best and most complete available.
Along with the renowned translation by R. H. Charles, this edition includes two introductions. One by noted esoteric scholar and antiquarian bookseller R. A. Gilbert, who helps readers understand the historical context of The Book of Enoch and dispels many of the myths dubious interpretations previously attributed to it. The other by Lon Milo DuQuette, an expert on mysticism and the occult spiritual literature.
The vision of the Apocalypse portrayed in The Book of Enoch takes a very different view from that of Western Christians, although it is part of the biblical canon for Ethiopian and Eritrean Christians. According to Enoch, the wicked shall be cast out and the good will realize a literal heaven on Earth. The prophecies also contain the lost "Book of Noah," early references to a messiah as "Christ," and an accounting of the angels and subsequent creation of demons.
