Banned by Christian authorities and thought lost for millennia, The Book of Ech remains one of the oldest extant mystical documents. It is referred to in the Hebrew Zohar, the Epistle of St. Jude and is considered by some a very early draft of the New Testament. The Book of Ech's vision of the Apocalypse takes a very different view than that of traditional Christians: according to Ech, the wicked shall be cast out and the good will realise a literal heaven on Earth. The prophecies, also, contain the lost Book of Noah, early references to a messiah as Christ and an accounting of the angels and subsequent creation of demons. This superlative translation by ted scholar and theologian R.H. Charles, culled from various manuscripts, is one of the best and most complete to date. An introduction by ted esoteric scholar and antiquarian bookseller, R. A. Gilbert, places THE BOOK OF ENOCH THE PROPHET in historical context and dispels many of the dubious interpretations previously attributed to it.
