Overview

Jesus’ remarkable and rather puzzling statements from the Gospel of Thomas, considered “secret sayings,” have suffered centuries of misinterpretation, reinforcing a skewed view of both Christianity and Jesus himself. In Christian Zen, noted scholar Robert Powell deciphers their true meaning and shows how they mirror Zen philosophy. His commentaries explain that the sayings embody the timeless teaching of advaita, the esoteric expression of the inner meaning of all the great religions.

"Some years ago, when the Gospel of Thomas was a brand new discovery, an undergraduate student enthusiastically told me it made Jesus sound like a Zen Master. Now, finally, from the eminent spiritual writer Robert Powell we have a definitive treatment of this theme."
—Robert Ellwood, Emeritus Professor of Religion, University of Southern California
