The Gnostic Gospels are becoming more and more important to many scholars of early Christianity. Since reading Tobias Churton's first book, 'The Gnostics' last spring, I've become and avid follower of his work. The Kiss of Death, based on the 'Gnostic Gospel of Judas', is a page turner... Churton truly knows his bible and exhibits his talents for research and detail, exposing the most important drama of Christianity.  The book is scholarly, yet warm and witty—what a combination!
