Despite differing opinions on the degree of authority that should be given to the books of the Apocrypha, most Christians agree that these books are valuable. Because they were written in the intertestamental period, they provide helpful insights into Jewish history, beliefs, and religious practices immediately prior to the birth of Jesus. Reading the Apocrypha provides better understanding of the political, cultural, ethical, and religious context of the contemporaries of Jesus.
Now this important collection of religious texts is available in a remarkably accurate and readable version. Translated directly from the original languages by a team of scholars, the GOD'S WORD translation of the Apocrypha is an exceptional literary work that consciously combines scholarly fidelity with natural English. This edition includes the books that are part of the Roman Catholic canon, the deuterocanonical books of the Old Testament.

Review 1 for Apocrypha: The Deuterocanonical Books of the Old Testament
Date:November 5, 2011
I was very pleased with the quality of the book,the thickness of the pages,the size of the print is large enough.The monogramming I ordered was nicely done.Although I do not consider this book to have the same reverance or authority as the Holy Bible,I believe it has value for Christians in helping to understand Jewish customs,and traditions,and Jewish history.
