The New Testament gives us 27 canonical texts - gospels, letters, and more - but these works are only a tiny fraction of the many volumes written about the life of Jesus, his family, and the apostles. This alternative body of literature falls under the category of "apocrypha", which means "hidden" or "secret", and it offers fascinating insights into the early Christian world. But these early Christian apocryphal works are more than historical curiosities.

Retracing his own spiritual journey from atheism to faith, Lee Strobel, former legal editor of the Chicago Tribune, cross-examines a dozen experts with doctorates from schools like Cambridge, Princeton, and Brandeis who are recognized authorities in their own fields. Strobel challenges them with questions like: How reliable is the New Testament? Does evidence for Jesus exist outside the Bible? Is there any reason to believe the resurrection was an actual event?

one of the first apologetic books I read as a new Christian in it's first printing. was interested in the updated materials. overall I'm pretty impressed with it. sometimes the experts Lee interviews give answers that didn't quite convince me of his questions. if you really want to know God is real, seek him with your whole heart and God will reveal Himself to you.

  • The Book of Giants

Among the first seven scrolls discovered in the caves of Qumran at the Dead Sea is a scroll given the name "The Book of Giants". It is thought to have been based on the Book of Enoch, a pseudepigraphical Jewish work from the third century BCE. The Book of Giants, like the Book of Enoch, concerns itself with the Nephilim, which are the offspring of fallen angels, who are called the Watchers. Two main versions of the text exist. The Dead Sea version is written in Aramaic.

The text repeats "codecs corrupted," every few seconds in an echo, makes it unbearable torture. The amount of material missing makes you wonder why even bother creating an audio version of this book. This echo effect is way overused throughout the reading and really detracted from the content inside. The rest of the content is somewhat interesting though.
