Abstract:

Throughout history, Christians have expressed their faith through story. They created texts featuring important early Christian figures, like Jesus, Peter, Paul, Mary Magdalene, and Judas, to express their relationships to God and to the world around them. Some of these texts are found in today's New Testament, but there is a wide assortment of other texts that are not included in the Bible. Secret Scriptures Revealed answers, in clear accessible terms, many frequently asked questions about the Christian Apocrypha. It describes and explains the key texts and includes a much-needed discussion.
