The Book of Jasher, reprinted for the first time in several years and with a new introduction by popular author W. Jeffrey Marsh, offers Bible readers interesting and important insights into the first two thousand years of biblical history.

The Book of Jasher follows the biblical accounts in Genesis, Exodus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, and Joshua. It reads like the Bible but includes interpolations and elaborations not found in the Bible. In addition, it sheds light on Bible stories from the time of Adam and Eve, the ministry of Enoch, and the account of the great Deluge during the days of Noah to the Tower of Babel, nefarious Nimrod, and faithful Abraham and his descendants.

As Moredecai M. Noah wrote in his introduction to the 1840 English translation: "Without giving it to the world as a work of Divine inspiration, or assuming the responsibility to say that it is not an inspired book, I have no hesitation in pronouncing it a work of great antiquity and interest, and a work that is entitled, even regarding it as a literary curiosity, to a great circulation among those who take pleasure in studying the scriptures."

Koorong Editorial Note: The Book of Jasher is translated from Hebrew manuscripts, the oldest of which was printed in the 17th century. It is purported to be the text of a book actually referred to in the Old Testament, but which does not form part of the canon accepted by Christian churches. It is not considered to be on the level of Scripture with regard to its authority, and its antiquity is highly debatable. However it provides fascinating supplementary information - from Jewish sources - on stories and characters from the Pentateuch.
