Obviously, Miguel Conner has done his homework. The questions he asks the interviewees make it clear he is familiar with their material. Also that he has done an incredible amount of in depth reading on theology, the Gnostics, philosophy, history, and anything else germane to the subject. He didn't just stop with his own pet theory, the error of far too many alt. gospel promoters. Some of whom he has had on Aeon Byte Gnostic radio; it is, after all, good to consider all voices. Plus, as Eric G. Wilson noted in his segment on William Blake, "the primary way to break out of these tyrannical forms that society imposes upon us is to learn to value your own unique experience, trying to shatter those manacles of mind..." Which includes not imposing new ones.
Sure, the class smart kids don't know everything and the quiet dumb kid in the back of the room may have seen something no one else noticed. But reading what experts have to say, like those in this book, is very helpful for understanding what meaning there may be in personal experiences of non-consensus realities. Negotiating those spaces is difficult and sometimes even dangerous. No, the map is not the territory, but it sure helps to have a decent guidebook.
If you want to know all about Gnosticism, this is one of the sources you need. Amazing book! ¡Un libro excelente!
