The Book of the Dead and Egyptian religions and temple worship have similarities to my own religion, and by reading Nibley and this book, I can see how things might relate, and also how things have been embellished over thousands of years. I am intrigued by their beliefs and what they thought was important, and how they were so concerned with the afterlife.

The Book of the Dead" is the name now given to sheets of papyrus covered with religious and magical texts and accompanying illustrations, which the ancient . Carol Andrews took Falkner's work and Americanized it. She also toned down the heavy Christian analysis.

This authoritative book contains the translated text of the "Papyrus of Ani", one of the greatest treasures of the British Museum. I find this version much easier to read.

The Book of the Dead is the name now given to a collection of religious and magical texts known to the ancient Egyptians as The Chapters of Coming-forth by Day. Their principal aim was to secure for the deceased a satisfactory afterlife and to give him the power to leave his tomb when necessary. Copies of The Book of the Dead written on papyrus rolls were placed in the tombs of important Egyptians, each roll containing a selection of chapters. Many examples have survived from antiquity, dating mostly from c. 1500 BCE-250 BCE. In this volume, the text translated by the late Dr. R.O. Faulkner is that found in the papyrus prepared for the scribe Ani which is one of the greatest treasures in the British Museum. The vignettes are taken from the many finely illustrated copies which are preserved in the collections of the British Museum.

1)The main thing is that not only are translations matched with vignettes (pictures of the actual pages), but the text is not British English.... it is Americanized...... This makes it very easy to understand. 2)An interesting point to the translations is that, if you know anything about the actual vignettes, the translations of not just the black text, but the red text, is well defined. 3)Helps to understand the ancient Egyptian culture and gets rid of some myths about their actual religious structure, which was less an adoration than to make the gods serve someone that proclaimed themselves worthy.

Carol Andrews took Falkner's work and Americanized it. She also toned down the heavy Christian analysis. I find this version much easier to read. It has beautiful photographs and follows the tail of Ani as he descends into the underworld...
