    A very well written and organized book concerning the Gnostic point of view. If you are looking at expanding your knowledge in general, and exploring an alternative view of early Christianity in particular, this is an excellent place to begin.

    Very well Written Author Did his Homework

    First off if you looking for the gospel of Judas, you wont find it in this book, the gnostic gospels were released prior to the gospel of judas however you can find the gospel of judas free online. If you want to spend a tad more money and get a book written by over 30 scholars who expert in translation with a much more disected and well written account of the gnostic gospels INCLUDING THE GOSPEL OF JUDAS, look for THE NAG HAMMADI SCRIPTURES
    In fact, the aurthor of this book was one of the men who helped write the better book on the gnostic Gospels, the one which included THE GOSPEL OF JUDAS.

    This book is written to have an smooth flow to it with an easy every day english translation, where THE NAG HAMMADI SCRIPTURES are a little bit more precise and confusing.

    If you are someone who is interested in the topic but does not wish to go in depth into it his would be my reccomendation for you. Besides you can find a free translation of the gospel of Judas online. In fact you can find the entire list of gnostic gospels online. BUT that should in no way stop you from buying a book on them, belive me youll want to be able to look up some of the things Jeus "Said" and show it to your friends.'

    Yiou will find a much more colorful picture of Jesus painted in these Gospels . Much of which may suprise you BUT DONT BE DISCOURAGED. Many of these could quite potentially be fake, however some look like they could fit in quite nicely with Mathew Mark Luke and John and you could certainly learn a thing or two....dont give up for the sake of one gospel.
