9781571781680: Secrets From the Lost Bible

Ancient scriptures, hidden from the world for centuries, have recently attracted unprecedented popular attention. Some were found among the ancient library of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Others include assorted mystical writings known as Kabbalah, and a host of books that never made it into the Bible, called Apocrypha (which means "hidden") and the Pseudepigrapha (called "false writings" by those who suppressed them). Additionally, there are the Gnostic texts of Nag Hammadi—a location in Egypt where a treasure trove of lost books was discovered in the middle of the 20th century. Collectively, they comprise the "Lost Bible." For centuries, these manuscripts were systematically suppressed because their liberating messages of individual power and worth challenged the authority and pet philosophies of political and religious leaders.

From the Author:

With the phenomenon of The Da Vinci Code and growing interest in the Dead Sea Scrolls, Kabbalah, Gnostic Gospels, and the Nag Hammadi library, popular curiosity about non-canonical scriptures is at an all-time high. The contents of all these re-discovered documents are, in most cases, obscure to modern readers. To answer our hunger for understanding, Kenneth Hanson, Ph.D., a university professor and lifelong student of these "Lost Bible" texts, summarizes their fascinating history and decodes them for the non-scholarly audience. He distills the essential wisdom in these ancient scriptures — wisdom sorely needed in our 21st Century world.

Hanson is an increasingly sought-after expert on ancient biblical text. The documentary Once Upon a Time in the Universe will appear in theaters nationwide in fall of 2004.

Kenneth Hanson, PhD, is an associate professor in the University of Central Florida Judaic studies program. He is the author of Blood Kin of Jesus, Dead Sea Scrolls: The Untold Story, Kabbalah: Three Thousand Years of Mystic Tradition, and Words of Light: Spiritual Wisdom from the Dead Sea Scrolls.
