Book Description

May 19, 2010
This commentary on The Gospel of Thomas originally appeared-in a much-truncated form-between and November of 2003 and March of 2005, on the "Fantastic Planet" weblog. Composed as an attempt to provide a cohesive collection of thoughts and meditations on that most prevalent of Gnostic scriptures, I wanted to produce something that would be useful instead of merely interesting, something that addressed modern concerns within a Gnostic context, by a Gnostic, for people interested in Gnosticism.

Editorial Reviews


A must-read for anyone with a connection to early Christianity and Gnostic Inquiry. -- Father Jordan Stratford, Apostolic Johannite Church

From the Publisher

The mysterious 114 sayings found in the Coptic Gospel of Thomas continue to puzzle and enlighten readers in the sixty years since its discovery in the sands of Egypt. Attributed to Jesus Christ, and purportedly recorded by the Apostle Thomas, the sayings contain insights both startling and remarkable for their simplicity.

Now a noted Gnostic Minister involved in the modern Gnostic renascense presents a new translation of, and commentary on these esoteric words of Jesus. Brother Jeremy Puma, of the Palm Tree Garden Gnostic Community, investigates these sayings from a Gnostic standpoint. The resulting commentaries are lucid and insightful, surprisingly clear and startlingly useful.

Heavily influenced by Zen Buddhism and the writings of modern sci-fi author Philip K. Dick, the information contained in The Face of the Sky and Earth will get you thinking about Gnosticism in an entirely new way.
