Reviews

"How refreshing to move from our contemporary culture of Christian literalism to a spiritual world alive with symbol, metaphor and the poetry of the Divine." -Ron Miller, religion department chair, Lake Forest College, author, The Gospel of Thomas: A Guidebook for Spiritual Practice "Provides us with a wealth of insightful annotations, and the translation is the most accessible to date. All of those with an interest in Gnostic tradition and its sacraments will be happy to receive this splendid work!" -Stephan A. Hoeller, author, Gnosticism, Jung and the Lost Gospels and The Gnostic Jung "An excellent new translation and annotation that brings a fascinating Gnostic text to life. A valuable contribution to our ongoing efforts to understand the richness of early Christianity." -Timothy Freke, coauthor of The Jesus Mysteries, Jesus and the Lost Goddess and The Laughing Jesus
