In the decades since its discovery, the Gospel of Thomas has intrigued people of all faiths around the world. Shedding new light on the origins of Christianity, the Gospel of Thomas raises questions about whether the New Testament's version of Jesus' teachings is entirely accurate and complete. In the Gospel of Thomas we see Jesus as a wisdom-loving sage, sharing aphorisms about the value of the present and each person's role in the creation of the Kingdom of God here on earth. But these inspiring sayings can leave you wondering, "What next?" Now you can learn how to start applying Jesus' wisdom to your own life - and, in turn, to the world around you. This unique guidebook leads you through Thomas, offering practices that help you translate Jesus' wisdom into a more fulfilling, enriching daily life, including: Becoming a Spiritual Adult, Sorting Out the Old and the New, Being a Healing Presence, And much more...

"Like the Kingdom of God, the Gospel of Thomas is a mustard seed: if it falls on prepared soil it grows into a sheltering umbrella of grace. Ron Miller's masterful guidebook to Thomas prepares the soil of the reader's soul that Jesus's words take root and create shelter. This is a book to read and, more importantly, to implement." --Rabbi Rami Shapiro, author, Hasidic Tales: Annotated and Explained and The Hebrew Prophets: Annotated and Explained

"Read this book. Savor its spirit. Let it shake you up and transform you as you encounter an ancient Jesus tradition promoting a higher consciousness and a universal love." --Miriam Therese Winter, professor, Hartford Seminary, and a Medical Mission Sister "Like the Kingdom of God, the Gospel of Thomas is a mustard seed: if it falls on prepared soil it grows into a sheltering umbrella of grace.
