Summary Formats Reviews About the author Annotations


The original Book of Jasher referred to in the Old Testament has not survived into the present. Two creative fabrications gained prominence, however. This 1840 translation is of a 13th century reconstruction of the original, which, according to tradition, contained alternate accounts of Jewish heroes meant for moral instruction and edification. First published in Salt Lake City, the work has consequently sparked the particular interest of the Church of Latter-Day Saints.
