The First Book of Enoch was fairly well known in the first century, and accepted by both Christians and Jews. It is a composite book, made of several books joined together, but all deal with the visions of Enoch, the great grandfather of Noah.

Book of the Watchers -- I Enoch 1-36 (BW)
Similitudes of Enoch -- I Enoch 37-71 (Sim)
Astronomical book -- I Enoch 71-82 (AB)
Book of Dreams -- I Enoch 83-90 (BD)

It's thorough and academic and perfect for a student taking a degree in Religion. My head hasn't been used this hard since I was a student myself. Perhaps not exactly the kind of read that I had had in mind when I initially picked it up, but one that is certainly well informed and thorough.
