'The value of this study is the collection of parallels given for the various themes discussed. A person interested, for example, in what these texts have to say about Jesus' earthly origins, his relations with other individuals and groups, the equality of believers with Christ, and many other topics, will find the materials conveniently drawn together here... a good place to start finding one's way through a large range of topics of interest to students of the gnostic movement.'
William R. Schoedel, University of Illinois, The Catholic Biblical Quarterly.
