Extra Biblical Writings
.
(Pseudepigrapha, Gnostic, Apocrypha & Dead Sea Scrolls)
Note: Many have written in asking if I could compile an A-Z list of all the books for the sections, below. Due to the amount of time involved (and the number of books) sorry but I am unable to do this.

However I have listed here all the books (not in alphabetical order) within my current collection and if you know the name or even a part of the name of the book that you are after you can do a quick search on this page using the find function in your own browser (usually it is the ctrl f keys).
