The origin of the legendary Book of Giants has eluded scholars and paleographers for centuries. Did it originate with the Manichaeans in the sixth century? Or do its origins reach back to an age before Christ?

Loren T. Stuckenbruck explores the manuscripts found at Qumran, which attributes this mythical book to independent Jewish sources around the time of the Second Temple period. Stuckenbruck brings his expertise on 1 Enoch to the fragments of the Book of Giants, studying both the published and unpublished fragments, giving this study a wide scope. Hoping to shed light on the Book of Giants as an early Jewish document, Stuckenbruck demonstrates that this writing is to be taken seriously in its own right.
