From the Author

The gospel stories are presented in story telling format.  The premise is that the Apostle Philip is writing about his friend Simon (who is the Apostle Simon Peter).  The story twists around Simon's Mother-In-Law (Mary Magdalene), a mystical spiritual teacher, and how they both deal with experiences with Jesus.  Simon, with his brother Andy (Apostle Andrew) team in business with their friends Jake (Apostle James) and Ian (Apostle John).  The setting is the time of the Roman invasion to stop the revolutionaries and the fabled escape of the early Christians to Pella.

About the Author

Thomas Ragland, known in various internet discussion groups as Gnostic Tom, is a native of Tennessee with a Southern Baptist background.  "Gnostic" is from the Greek word "gnosis", which for Thomas means to know through direct experience.  Direct spiritual experiences have been more important to Thomas than faith or beliefs.  From an early age, a sense of resonance with Jesus was felt.  From this foundation of Bible study, Thomas ventured into exploring the various spiritual traditions in a comparative study. His first published book is "The Noble Eightfold Path of Christ: Jesus Teaches the Dharma of Buddhism", which explores the similarities between the teachings of Jesus and Siddhartha Gotama.   Next came "Buddha Turns the Kabbalah Wheel: Jewish Buddhist Resonance from the Christian Gnostic Perspective", which compares Buddhist thought with Kabbalah. His most recently published book is "Jesus Gnosis Story of Simon by Philip", a fictional take on some of the stories and characters in the gospel stories. Thomas is currently working on future publications in the field of comparative religious studies.
