For those of you who've not had a look already, I'd really recommend it. Here are a couple of online versions:

1883 translation
(http://www.johnpratt.com/items/docs/enoch.html)

1917 translation:
(http://www.sacred-texts.com/bib/boe/)

Very helpful in the study of astrotheology.

There's also some stuff on the interwebs regarding the Greek word 'Phoenix' being derived from the Egyptian 'Pa-Hanok' or 'house of Enoch', which, if true, would put an interesting solar spin on things...

I read the books of Enoch years ago when I was a believer. They seemed bizarre even then.

When understood astrotheologically, these texts can be quite fascinating. Otherwise, they certainly are bizarre.

I read them as a teenager before getting the Acharya treatment and was like "WTF?" Having read them again recently, I'm like "Ah...".

I bookmarked them to read when I have time. It seems like since I started taking classes again, I don't have time to read everything I want. :(

That's the problem I had with studying - it interfered with my reading time.

I'm having the same problem. :( Textbooks are ok, but I get tired of reading them really quickly and want something I actually want to read.
