The book of Enoch by Enoch( Book )

48 editions published between 1917 and 2013 in English and Romanian and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" R. H. Charles provides a definitive translation of one of the most noted apocalyptic works still in existence. Often described as "the lost book" of the Bible, The Book of Enoch seems to have been written in Palestine by several different authors in the first and second centuries B.C. For hundreds of years it was accepted by the early church fathers, but it was rejected by the council of Laodicea in A.D. 364. Today, it remains a written remnant of the Apocalypse -- an ardent testament of hope and the triumph of good over evil in the dawning of a world to come. Rife with concepts of original sin, fallen angels, demonology, resurrection and the last judgment, it is a vital document to the origins of Christianity." - back cover
