A good beginning to understanding Gnosticism
This book is a good start for anyone who has gained an interest in Gnostisim and is seeking to understanding the 'tradition of inner knowing.' The writer does an excellent job on describing the history of the movement from Christ and John the baptist, the prophet Mani, the Cathars, other Gnostic sects, and C. S. Jung psychology to what potential impact it could have on today's world. The book also has a fine book list of other readings on Gnostisism. Again, this is a good start for those who seek.

A well written and thorough treatment of Gnosticism
This is an excellent source of information on the history, beliefs, and thoughts of the Gnostics. Generally, Gnosticism is a varied and complex subject to define but the author does a fantastic job of presenting both historic and current views. I highly recommend this book to those who want a great reference on the subject.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
