Ken Johnson is one of our favorite authors for good reason. His clear, concise treatment of some ancient historical subjects are second to none.
His latest work is The Ancient Book of Enoch, the apocryphal book quoted in the New Testament. The Holy Spirit inspired Jude to quote from Enoch in his brief but powerful NT book. The Book of Enoch opens by addressing those in the Tribulation Period. That alone should get your attention! It contains numerous prophecies about the flood and fire judgments, and the two comings of the Jewish Messiah. It teaches that the Messiah is the Son of God and that one day in the future He would shed His blood to redeem fallen mankind. He even predicts the generation in which this would occur!
The Book of Enoch prophesies a window of time in which the Second Coming would occur and prophesies that there will be 23 Israeli Prime Ministers ruling in 58 terms, from AD 1948 to the beginning of the Tribulation Period. Now that will get your attention for sure! Although the Book of Enoch talks about the Creation of the Bible it says that we will be judged by our obedience to the Word of God, not the Book of Enoch. It is clearly not a part of the Canon of Scripture.
The Ancient Book of Enoch recounts the history of the fallen angels who fell in the days of Jared, Enoch’s father. It testifies to their marriages with human women and their genetic experiments. This commentary includes a previously unknown chapter from the Dead Sea Scrolls that explains exactly how they accomplished their evil deeds of genetic tampering.
The Hebrew, English and transliteration is on every page. Now you too can pray the
psalms of King David, saying the very words he wrote, spoke and sang in Leshon Hakodesh
(the Holy tongue) — Hebrew. While you listen to the words, whether to practice,
meditate, or solemnly pray, you’ll also hear the heavenly music of King David’s harp.
These melodies were played in Jerusalem on the original, very first reproduction in
2,000 years of the biblical 22-string harp. The enclosed CD also includes selected verses
with ancient Psalms melodies. These songs were sung in synagogues for generations,
alongside with beautiful Psalm songs, performed in Israel for the last 50 years.
A CD with all the narrations and melodies is included. 100 personal psalms in English,
Hebrew and in transliteration. All verses are narrated over the divine melodies, inspired,
composed and played in Jerusalem, by Shoshana Harrari, on the world renowned King
David’s harp, exclusively for the psalms of this prayer book. (122 pages – includes CD)
Many excellent books have been written in the Bible’s defense, but not until One Book One Authority has there been such a thorough and factual compilation in support of the most contested Bible of our day. This book is written in a functional and practical format that will benefit every reader immensely, from the Bible novice to the seasoned preacher. The academic world, which demands a scholarly treatment of the subject, will be pleasantly surprised by its literary content. Very few writings cover this controversial issue in such a fair, rational and loving manner and none more objectively than One Book One Authority.
In this companion volume to One Book Stands Alone, a previous work, the sincere Bible student can acquire a working knowledge of contemporary challenges directed at the most revered book in human history. In spite of the myriad of Modern Bible versions and loose and careless translations of the Word of God, readers will gain an extraordinary confidence to support the use of the King James Bible. Along with building a spiritual storehouse of reinforcements for spiritual consultation, the reader will find greater insights into the history of God’s Word, God’s people and their mutual adversaries.

It will help you understand the embattled history for the English translation of the Bible, a story most Christians don’t understand.
