    Translation made easy to read Good notes and introduction Best gnostic translation I ve read and the quickest Not as authoritative maybe as someesoteric works on the Gnostics but easier to grasp and perhaps discard as nothing I ve read of Gnosticism so far rings very true to me But both Gnostic Gospels and Dead Sea Scrolls are very interesting early histories New and Old Testament times of so call...

    I chose this book because I didn t think I wanted commentary or context, I just wanted to read the books and mull them over on my own The first three were great The last one Secret Book of John was just kind of cray, in the same way that the Biblical Book of Revelations is cray I sort of lost interest at that point, and started wishing I had some commentary after all, to tell me WTF I was reading But that s not really what t...

    I bought this mainly to study the book and gospel of Thomas one half of the entirety in this collection , since I have heard they parallel many Buddhist ideas such as oneness and detachment They did not disappoint, and in fact I was thrilled to read Jesus speak of teachings that are basic law of attraction fundamentals The gospel of Thomas reads much like the dhammapada in that it contains only sayings from Jesus with little narrative The book of Thomas is an account during Jesus life, duri I bought this mainly to study the book and gospel of Thomas one half of the entirety in this collection , since I have heard they parallel many Buddhist ideas such as oneness and detachment They did not disappoint, and in fact I was thrilled to read Jesus speak of teachings that are b...

    Although the title smacks a bit of the lure of the forbidden, or some sort of scandalous and salacious content, I was impressed by how often the material in the gospels made sense I think that often persons who are exposed to mainstream Christianity are turned off by the emotional and often narrow approach to dealing with figuring out what to believe Orthodoxy rules the day, and not just with Christianity It s easy to believe that the less heard of belief systems those not in control over th Although the title smacks a bit of the lure of the forbidden, or some sort of scandalous and salacious content, I was impressed by how often the material in the gospels made sense I think that often persons who are exposed to mainstream Christianity are turned off by the emotional and often narrow approach to dealing with figuring out what to believe Orthodoxy rules the day, and not just with Christianity It s easy to believe that the less heard of belief systems those not in control over the centuries were forced into hiding and that the written material of those groups also had to be concealed, for survival s sake The discovery of 50 odd documents at Nag Hammadi in the mid 1940 s pointed out a bit of how truly the gnostic materials had literally gone underground I have found the gnostic writings that I have read to be stimulating, often controversial, broad in intent and scope, and oc...

    Interesting texts.The Secret Book of James, The Gospel of Thomas The Book of Thomas are presented as things Jesus said and there are deep kernels of truth, as well as many commonly known sayings, teaching and stories The Secret Book of John, well, it seems to be this esoteric creation story, that appears to be based in Zoroastrianism I found it impossible to follow, but was reading it, rather than trying to study it It dicussed many layers of gods and spirits, angels, demons and se Interesting texts.The Secret Book of James, The Gospel of Thomas The Book of Thomas are presented as things Jesus said and there are deep kernels of truth, as well as many commonly known sayings, teaching and stories The Secret Book of John, well, it seems to be this esoteric cre...

    I guess I can t rate the book based on the content, but how it was written There wasn t much additional writing besides the gnostic gospels I didn t know much about the gnostic gospels until I read a Jodi Piccolt book Change of Heart I thought it was interesting because I know the church had to have withheld some information from the times of Jesus I thought they were interesting, but I was just reading them over I wasn t going in depth into research Until I got to the Gospel of John and I guess I can t rate the book based on the content, but how it was written There wasn t much additional writing besides the gnostic gospels I didn t know much about the gnostic gospels until I read a Jodi Piccolt book Change of Heart I thought it was interesting because I know the church had to have withheld some information from the times of Jesus I thought they were interesting, but I was just r...

    Really enjoyed reading the Gnostic writings here It would have benefitted I feel from a little interpretation from the translator, especially on the Secret Book Of John, which I found to be completely fascinating I had read the others before in theology classes many years ago and the Gospel Of Thomas again recently Few pe...

    I gave this book a high mark because of the spiritual truth it contains and reveals to those with ears to hear and eyes to see, which I admit am not quite there yet.The study of these ancient truths is not to be taken lightly and I intend to studyseiously and reverently when I find an astute and...
