"Professor Davies has taken the Gospel of Thomas to the next level of intelligibility and accessibility. The commentary stretches the mind, while the comprehensible and accessible translation make Jesus' (and Thomas’s) voice clear. A masterful resource for both spiritual and intellectual seekers!"
―Richard Valantasis, Professor of New Testament and Christian Origins, Iliff School of Theology
"The Gospel of Thomas really is, I believe, the clearest guide we have to the vision of the world's supreme mystical revolutionary, the teacher known as Jesus. To those who learn to unpack its sometimes cryptic sayings, the Gospel of Thomas offers a naked and dazzlingly subversive representation of Jesus' defining and most radical discovery: that the living Kingdom of God burns in us and surrounds us at all moments."
--from the Foreword by Andrew Harvey

Need to have it deciphered or explained at times. It is complicated.
