The books is interesting so far. Basically it is the history of the Gnostic Gospels. Good for getting the background behind them and various opinions and thoughts on them. I have not finished it as of yet. It was not what I expected when I ordered as I was interested in just reading The Gnostic Gospels. Once I finish this book I will definitely be purchasing others of like kind in an attempt to read more on the actual gospels.
If you want to know the things that were excluded from the bible this is a good source of info. It's researched and well thought out. Why did the church use Jesus' death as the starting point of Christianity and not his actual teachings? Jesus' belived in an all-loving and perfect God, then why does the church promote a mean vengful jealous God? Must read.
