"I'm not sure who said it or wrote it or mentioned it in passing at a conference, but at one point someone said in my presence that 'You cannot understand the New Testament if you don't have a firm grasp of the Hebrew Bible and The Book of Enoch.' They were right. And that's why this little book by Phillip Long is so incredibly relevant and significant. He leads his readers to a clear understanding of this material so central to so much of Christian thinking." —Jim West, ThD, lecturer in biblical studies and church history, Ming Hua Theological College/Charles Sturt University

"The Book of Enoch is an Internet sensation these days, inspiring theories about ancient astronauts, the Illuminati, and the imminent apocalypse. The real contents of this book are not so dramatic, but they are no less interesting. Phillip Long here provides the novice with a readable and attractive introduction to this fascinating ancient text. It will prove a handy guide to those who want to know what serious scholars are saying about The Book of Enoch and an excellent companion for those who undertake to read the text for themselves." —Anthony J. Tomasino, PhD, author of Judaism before Jesus
