Hi:

I’m looking to purchase one of Lumpkin’s books and trying to decide between “The Lost Books of the Bible: Great Rejected Texts” and “The Encyclopedia of Lost & Rejected Scriptures: The Pseudepigrapha and Apocrypha”. Can you help me decide by telling me what the major difference is between them? I am interested in Mr. Lumpkin’s commentary. Does one have more then the other on the various texts?

Thanks,

– Scott
