520    "The Kebra Nagast is a pivotal text in the Rastafarian 
       tradition. Written in Ethiopia during the 14th century, 
       this sacred tale tells the story of the relationship 
       between the Biblical King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba, 
       as well as their son Menyelek who famously brought the Arc
       of the Covenant to Ethiopia. A key text for Ethiopian 
       Christians, The Kebra Nagast is also a fundamental sacred 
       work of the Rastafarian tradition. Edited by Gerald 
       Hausman, The Kebra Nagast: The Lost Bible of Rastafarian 
       Wisdom and Faith weaves the core passages of the Kebra 
       Nagast together with stories and tale from Rastafarian 
       traditions. This rich retelling is the latest title in the
       acclaimed Essential Wisdom Library series which brings 
       sacred texts from all traditions to modern readers. The 
       new edition of the book includes a foreword by Ziggy 
       Marley, which explores the importance of the Kebra Nagast 
       as a powerful text both in Rastafarian tradition and in a 
       broader sense. A clean, fresh design and inside cover 
       printing give this ancient text modern appeal. A work of 
       incredible cultural significance, The Kebra Nagast is far 
       more than simply a piece of literature, but rather it is a
       testament to enduring richness of Ethiopian tradition and 
       culture."--Back cover.
