Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Marvelous.... Will provide spiritual seekers, committed Christians and academic scholars [insight into] sayings attributed to Jesus that they may not know existed. A valuable sourcebook and significant contribution to the study of the history of Christian ideas."
Stevan Davies, professor of religious studies, College Misericordia and author of The Gospel of Thomas: Annotated & Explained

“A fascinating kaleidoscope of 'other takes' on Jesus from early Christianity’s closest religious neighbors.”
Cynthia Bourgeault, author of Encountering the Wisdom Jesus

“An invaluable contribution to historical Jesus research.... Insightful, even-handed and refreshingly succinct ... an essential collection.”
Rev. Jeffrey J. Bütz, author of The Brother of Jesus and the Lost Teachings of Christianity

“Compelling and enlightening.... Allows us to hear the wisdom that was Jesus.”
Rabbi Rami Shapiro, author of The Sacred Art of Lovingkindness: Preparing to Practice

“If the gospels represent the tip [of Jesus’s sayings], Andrew Phillip Smith has provided the rest of the iceberg. Here is proof that [Jesus’s] voice has never fallen silent.”
Robert M. Price, professor of scriptural studies, Johnnie Colemon Theological Seminary

“Excellent ... an invaluable aid in our endeavor to hear [Jesus’s] authentic voice.”
Ron Miller, author of The Hidden Gospel of Matthew: Annotated & Explained
