"An extraordinary work of theological commentary, "The Gospel of Thomas for Awakening" is as informed and informative as it is inspired and inspiring." -James A. Cox, Editor-in-Chief, Midwest Book Review

"From the very beginning there were two Christianities." So begins this remarkable work.

While the rest of the Apostles dispersed to various areas of the Mediterranean world, the apostle Thomas travelled to India, where growing evidence shows that Jesus spent his "Lost Years," and which had been the source of the wisdom which he had brought to the "West."

In The Gospel of Thomas for Awakening, Abbot George shines the "Light of the East" on the sometimes enigmatic sayings of Jesus recorded by his apostle Saint Thomas, revealing their unique and rich practical nature for modern day seekers for spiritual life.

Ideal for daily study or group discussion.

The Reverend Gerry Nangle says: "The chapters are quite short, each based on one or two sayings, making them ideal for daily study and contemplation or suitable as material for group discussion. This book can be read once or twice for its rich factual content, or many times for the spiritual challenges it raises within the reader's own mind and heart."

While many books related to the Gospel of Thomas deal with historical or theological issues, Abbot George's approach is remarkably practical, dealing with how Jesus' words can be applied to make your life better and more spiritually rich. This is a must have book for spiritual aspirants, whatever their background.
