Sinopsis:

We are active, restless both in body and mind. Curiosity has replaced blind faith. We go groping, peering, searching, scornful of dogmas, back, further back to sources. And just as the physicist thrills at the universes he discovers as he works inward in the quest of his electrons, so the average man exults in his apprehension of fundamentals of psychology. New cults spring up, attesting to the Truth--as they see it--countless fleets of Theism, Buchmanism, Theosophy, Bahai'ism, etc., sail under brightly colored flags; and Atheism is flaunting itself on the horizon. Almost the passengers have turned pilots. Everyman is thinking for himself. The findings here--in this strange volume--bring the reader into a large inland sea, cut off from the traffic and the tempest that have sprung up in the West; and untouched by the crosscurrents of dogmas and presumptions that have cluttered historic centuries. Here is virgin water that gushes, troubled by abysmal forces only, out of the very earth itself.

From the Back Cover:

Editor RUTHERFORD HAYES PLATT, JR. (1894-1975) originally brought this work to light in 1926. In The Forgotten Books of Eden, he has collected a number of apocryphal biblical writings. The authors of these works are unknown, having hidden themselves behind the names of the great religious legends that they wrote about. The works found here are not even considered part of the official "Apocrypha," despite their timeless wisdom and helpful additions to Christian, Jewish, and Islamic understanding and lore.

The book opens with The First Book of Adam and Eve, originally written by an unnamed Egyptian and copied into many other languages over the centuries. Also included in this book are:

* The Second Book of Adam and Eve
* The Secrets of Enoch
* The Psalms of Solomon
* The Odes of Solomon
* The Letter of Aristeas
* The Fourth Book of Maccabees
* The Story of Ahikar
* The Testament of Reuben
* and many more...
