Additional Information

This revised edition is a translation of the sixth German edition, just as the original English New Testament Apocrypha was a translation of the third German edition. The introductions to individual texts have been either completely rewritten or thoroughly revised. This book reflects current research findings. The bibliographical data in all sections has been updated as well. Some of the texts have been newly translated, some completely revised, and three completely new texts have been added. Indexes have been included in this volume that allow access to both volumes of the entire work.

Great reference material.

This authoritative edition of the Apocryphal writings, relating to the New Testament, covers all the non canonical texts, detailed later on in this review. As a teen, I read the OT Pseudo-Epigrapha which fascinated me. I heard about the Gospel of Barnabas, which I read in Arabic, became suspicious of the translators, but developed an eagerness to read more. It was a lucky day in September when I carried back home the four hard covers, on the OT and NT Apocryphal texts. The novice reader may start with volume I which includes a concise introduction covering the NT canonization process, and reference to the testimony of Church Fathers Origen, Eusebius and Athanasius. This revised edition presents, one of the finest traditions of German scholarship on the extra canonicals. Together with its first volume, they cover all sources of ancient Apocryphal writings in Coptic, Greek and Latin.

. . .this volume does for the Acts and Apocalypses of the Apostles.
This book "New Testament Apocrypha: Writings Relating to the Apostles Apocalypses and Related Subjects" , like the companion volume, is THE definitive scholarly English-language edition of the sub-canonical, post New Testament era Acts of various Apostles, lives of various Apostolic personalities, and Apocalypses and Revelations of all sorts.
Again, like the first volume, each text is expertly translated (with textual variants properly explained) and is preceded by a scholarly introduction discussing issues of critical importance. Appropriate references are also provided, so that the student or researcher has a "jumping-off" point for further study.
Any serious student of the New Testament and post New Testament era cannot affford to be without both of these texts. I highly recommend them both.
