This huge book of eighteen of the Lost Books of the Bible contains the following, NONE of which are Public Domain translations (beware of imitations):
The First Book of Adam and Eve;
The Second Book of Adam and Eve;
The Slavonic Life of Adam and Eve;
The First Book of Enoch;
The Book of Jubilees;
The Book of Jasher;
The Story of Ahikar;
The Apocalypse of Abraham;
The Apocalypse of Thomas;
The War Scroll: The Sons of Dark Against the Sons of Light;
The Gospel of Philip;
The Gospel of Mary Magdalene;
The Apocryphon of John (The Secret Book of John);
The Gospel of Thomas;
The Gospel of Judas;
The massive 684 page book does not attempt to explain why the books were not included in the Bible. To attempt to do so would not only be cursory given the lack of space, but more importantly, would be most unfair to readers as this is matter for specialist academics, and they have written books on the subject.
Note: Translators use the symbols [...] to signify a missing word in an ancient text. In this book there are symbols such as this to designate missing words of ancient texts.
