Publisher's Summary

The Collection of Christian Apocryphal Books:

  • All 12 Christian apocryphal books + all of the apocryphal additions to Daniel, Esther, and Psalms - 18 books in one
  • The complete collection

Etymologically, the word "apocrypha" means "things that are hidden", but why they were hidden is not clear.

Some have suggested that the books were "hidden" from common use, because they contained esoteric knowledge too profound to be communicated to any except the initiated...others have suggested that such books were hidden due to their spurious heretical teaching.

This is the only modern translation of the complete collection of deuterocanonical books known popularly as "The Apocrypha". The Literal Standard Version (LSV) is a modern translation that stays true to the original manuscripts.

These ancient texts provide commentators’ valuable insight into what many ancient Jews and early Christians believed when, “God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets” (Heb. 1:1).

The number of books in the Bible depends on which Bible is being referenced. Protestant and Catholic churches recognize 27 New Testament books. Protestants recognize 39 books of the Jewish canon in the Old Testament. Roman Catholics hold 46 books of the Old Testament as canon, along with expanded versions of Esther and Daniel. In addition to the 73 books of the Catholic Bible, the Orthodox Church adds three more books to their canon. By far, the largest canon of all is found in the Ethiopic Church, whose Bible totals 81 books. This Apocryphal volume contains the books of the Catholic, Orthodox, and Ethiopic Bibles.

The texts were carefully reformatted and reproduced to provide the listener with a comprehensive collection of the most critical lost, rejected, and forgotten books of the Bible. In an effort to build an all-in-one volume of these texts; we present to you the "The Apocrypha Collection".

History Academy represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Listeners trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

Not sure I pike the modern adaptation

The stories are ancient, but the modern adaptation seems harder to follow than the other version I have. The reader was ok, but he pronounced so many names and places different from what I have heard before, that it was distracting.

Very Interesting!

I had always wanted to read the Apocryphal and have seen much larger versions of them, however this was still informative and brought light to some of the old things that our elders say such as Proverbs; in raising children to direct them strongly for when they become adults you will not be disappointed. If you do not, you will ache from pain and worry! I'm paraphrasing but it was very interesting to listen too! In regards to ministry, I did find a few teaching points that would fit for expository preaching that would line up with the Word/Bible when it came to Esther, David, King Nebechudnezzar, and Daniel. There was also the mention of other arc angels and names of demons and there operations. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and will refer to it!

Well done, but incomplete

Excellent reading of excluded Biblical texts, but limited to the Old Testament. I was hoping by "complete" it included the missing books of the New Testament.

Hard To follow

Im not sure if the content written in this collection is accurate so I could not give it a high rating.

Struggled to finish this

Struggled to finish this due to the unrecognizable or nearly unrecognizable pronunciations of many of the names and places, all of which the average Bible student should be able to pronounce with little or no difficulty. Made for a very confusing listening experience.
