The selections made in this volume shed light on these esoteric doctrines revealing intimate conversations between Jesus and his Disciples.

The Gospel of Mary Magdalene throws new light on his relationship with this favourite disciple.

The Gospel of Thomas contains concentrated mini-parables, containing deep inward and symbolic meaning, many of which are not found in the New Testament.

The texts chosen are relevant to many of the perplexities of contemporary life and deal with the questions of good and evil, sin and suffering and the path to salvation.

It is a very interesting collection of the gnostic writings


It is an excellent collection of the gnostic writings, very well presented on excellent paper but spoiled by the fact that the verses are not numbered
