Remember in the accepted version of the Bible how Jesus blasts a fig tree? I always found that difficult to believe that he would do that. When I found this, on another website in its entirety, I was hooked. Especially when it showed Jesus blessing the fig tree for providing shade, food and a home for the birds. That sounds more like the Jesus I picture in my head. I could go on and on about my opinions of this book, however, so I won't. I feel I can read it more objectively than many "believers" because I was raised atheist. My mother, who was my spiritual influence as I grew up, never disrespected the person of Jesus. I was taught that he was a great teacher and wise man, but that was all. Some Christians, in fact most of them that follow the canonical Bible, would probably be greatly offended by this book (eg, the Christ is Jesu-Maria -- Jesus and Mary and I think they mean Magdalene, not Mom). I don't think there's a single mention of Paul/Saul of Tarsus and his alleged writings. When I decided, on a whim, to search for it on Amazon I was amazed that it was in print. Any way, take it from a Unitarian-Universalist atheist: it's a cool book and worth it.

I really enjoy this book and who knows it might be closer to the truth than we think. The only thing one needs to be aware of is that while the back cover of the book says the information came from a manuscript still hidden in Tibet the Introduction clearly states that it is 'channeled' information. It goes on to state that the information that differs from the canonical gospels comes from no known source. Just know what you're reading.

Format: Paperback
It would seem improbable - given the humane instinct of countless Christian saints - that their founder should have had so little to say about the fate of other creatures.

In that sense, there might be ample scope for suspicion that the accepted Gospels could have been edited by the type of Christians who tend to take a rather culinary view of non-human beings. If 'Jesus was a Vegetarian' as PETA and others would claim then the Gospel of the Holy Twelve provides an opportunity for today's Christians to approach a fuller concept of the life and spirit of Jesus Christ.

However this work (which was first serialised in 1898) has no known manuscript basis and merely develops a theme that the author outlined in preceding publications over a twenty year period. I have traced the Victorian origins of Rev Ouseley's 'gospel' through related tracts and articles which anyone interested may wish to investigate in my own book: 'Familiar Strangers: The Church and the Vegetarian Movement in Britain (1809-2009)'

Make of either publication what you will, maybe both texts are 'inspired' in their own way!!!

I did not like it enough to read more than 10% or so. I'm not sure what I expected from it, but I did not get it.
I was hoping to feel that I was reading what the people close to Jesus had to say, but what I seemed to be hearing was something else entirely.
