New Collection of Christian Apocrypha Published

A trove of early Christian apocrypha have been translated and compiled by Tony Burke with the second volume New Testament Apocrypha More Noncanonical Scriptures having been recently published. LiveScience ran a story about this book and discusses some of the more interesting stories included that were left out of the canonical New Testament. The story notes:

“More than 300 Christian apocryphal texts are known to exist, Tony Burke, a professor of early Christianity at York University in Toronto, Canada, wrote in the book he edited “New Testament Apocrypha More Noncanonical Scriptures (Volume 2)” (Eerdmans, 2020). ‘Apocryphal texts were integral to the spiritual lives of Christians long after the apparent closing of the canon and that the calls to avoid and even destroy such literature were not always effective’ wrote Burke. ”
