The Lost Books of the Bible is a collection of New Testament Apocrypha. It is a reprint of an earlier 1820 work called The Apocryphal New Testament, which itself was a reprint of the 1693 work, the Apostolic Fathers by William Wake, who later became the Archbishop of Canterbury. It includes many works that were read by the early Christians, but which were left out of the canonical Bible. Included are accounts of the infancy of Jesus, the Gospel of the Birth of Mary, the Protevangelion, the letters of Paul, Herod, Pilate, and Seneca, and non-canonical epistles, such as Laodiceans. Also included are the three books of the Shepherd of Hermas, which use apocalyptic and symbolic imagery.

This book has 317 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1926.

Production notes: This ebook of The Lost Books of the Bible was published by Global Grey on the 18th October 2021. The artwork used for the cover is 'Saint Jerome' by Anonymous.
