The Apocrypha are sacred writings that were not included in the Jewish Bible. This edition comprises the same 15 books that are in the Latin Vulgate. The books span various genres: some are historical narratives from the period in between the Old and New Testaments, some literary works, and others add to material in the canonical Bible. This is the first time the Apocrypha appears as an independent edition in this translation.

The KJV Apocrypha in a single volume. The Apocrypha ('hidden things') are contemporaneous with the Old Testament, but were not officially accepted as part of the Bible when the Hebrew 'canon' was set. They did, however, form part of the Greek Scriptures and came into English Bibles by that route. The writings of the Apocrypha run the whole gamut of literary genres: histories, romances, devotional works, proverbs and sermons. Many complement parts of the Old Testament and readers will recognise some familiar Biblical characters in the narratives, such as Daniel and Esther.
