Summary, etc.:
"Author James Willis analyzes over two dozen excluded texts of the Bible and the many references to books that we know about from fragments but remain lost. Willis uncovers sometimes surprising biases of the committees and people who made the final decisions. He investigates enigmatic hints of Bible codes and ancient wisdom that imply a greater spiritual force might have been at work than even the original editors. This book explores how sacred texts were used as a weapon against science and justified the destruction of sacred writings of conquered indigenous cultures because they did not agree with the finished version of the Bible accepted by the European establishment. It looks at the human frailties of interpreting God's words, and it brings a deeper understanding of the power and importance of those words"-- Provided by publisher.
