I gave "The Gospel of Judas" four stars rounding up from 3-1/2 stars. It's a fascinating story, but because there is so much "action" going on, it is sometimes difficult to follow the timeline and who's doing what to whom.
My recommendation is to purchase "The Gospel of Judas" if you're interested in archaeology along the lines of a spine-tingling Indiana Jones story. Read "The Lost Gospel: The Quest for the Gospel of Judas Iscariot" to see the translation of the Coptic document for yourself and understand how modern scholars believe it fits in with early Christian beliefs before the formation of the Orthodox / Catholic canon in the late fourth century.
I do have a problem with the slow pace of the book, which reinforced my skimming skills. Enough already about the geography of Alexandria, the development of the banking industry in Switzerland, the exotic diet (baby pigeons ripped apart with the hands) and home furnishings of Egyptian manuscript dealers! Much of the text seems to pad out the tome to 300 pages. But I'm not sorry I bought it - it's just a lot of hors d'oeuvres before the wonderful main course comes.
