Are there lost books of the Bible? No there aren’t. However, there are people that claim there are. Even some well meaning Christians claim there are missing books from the canon. When God said that He promised to preserve His Word…guess what? I believed Him! The Word of God in it’s 66 books the way we read the King James Version is the way God intended us to read it today. The Christian church didn’t establish the Word of God. Instead, the Christian church recognized it. I am providing a list and in some cases the books and fragments of these so called lost books…not as God’s inspired Word but rather as historical documents. Because I believe that even if they are not inspired they may have some historical value. Does this mean 100% historical accuracy? No.
