Overview

The Gospel Of Thomas by Joseph B Lumpkin

In the winter of 1945, in Upper Egypt, an Arab peasant discovered a large vessel. Inside were scrolls containing a hitherto unseen book. One of these books was the Gospel of Thomas. Here before you is the translation of that book. This is the contemporary translation of the Gnostic Gospel of Thomas with Greek and Coptic verses. Included are Bible parallels and commentary placed within the flow of the text to explain and expand these amazing verses.

The author gives a direct, accurate, picture of this Gnostic text. Joseph Lumpkin does not bog it down with comments on its significance or spiritual relavence. He assumes that you are intelligent enough to make up your own mind! A great book for anyone who enjoys reading spiritual works.

Beginning with a quick history lesson and ending in an eye-opening view of the overall meaning of the book, this was a very good read. Here we have the Coptic and Greek texts translated side by side in direct, understandable phrasing. Related verses from the Bible are included for each applicable verse. This is a well written work.
