Format: Paperback
This is a welcome addition to anyone's library who is trying to reconstruct the historical Jesus. Written around 120 c.e.( though , in its original form, it was probably written before Mark), its a semi gnostic work. It presents sayings of Jesus that are in some instances recognizable to orthodox christians and some that are not. In one instance the same saying occurs four times, each one more gnostic than before. but on the whole, the translation is excellent and the intro is superb.

Format: Paperback
I thought that this book was very interesting because unlike the other gospels, this book shows Jesus more as a sort of philosopher/teacher. I thought that the text was great and I also enjoyed the history of the discovery of the text at the end of the book. It gave me a new perspective on Jesus Christ as not only the Son of our Lord but as a wise teacher as well. I really enjoyed it.

As a student of the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures, I have found this book very helpful. I believe that those who are interested in early Christianity and the quest for the "Historical Jesus" would find this book very insightful, and should consider reading it.

Format: Paperback
A book for research, and also for curiosity, The Gospel of Thomas, Unearthing the Lost Words of Jesus, tells the reader, not only the sacred text, but the history of the Gnostic people. But what is fantastic about the actual text is the uncertainty of it, which makes you ponder about it, and wonder what Jesus the Messiah, the prophet, or the madman was trying to say. Although lacking some detailed discussion on the gospel's sayings, it is a very well researched book that gives us points to look at dealing with spirituality and history itself.
