Too deep. Maybe the author is trying to emulate Holy Blood Holy Grail but look what Dan Brown did to them!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Gnostic Gospels of Phillip, Mary Magdalene and Thomas 6 Sep 2012
By billjill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The preamble is rather airy fairy and off putting but once you get into the gospels it is very good, particularly that of Thomas where it gives the different translations and also ties in with the matching texts in the four existing gospels.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Gnostic Gospels.... 26 Jan 2012
By Tawnya J. Luke - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First of all, "Inside the Da Vinci Code and Holy Blood, Holy Grail" is so incorrect. The gospels are there for you to read. That's about it. No further commentary and nothing mentioning either the Da Vinci Code, nor Holy Blood, Holy Grail. I was disappointed in this book. So much more could have gone into it. As far as I'm concerned it should have been called, "The Gnostic Gospels of Philip, Mary Magdalene, and Thomas." Period. And the gospel of Mary Magdalene is so partial as to hardly be there at all. There is a lot of reading into the material that I don't see. How they used this particular gospel, or any of the three as a whole knowing some of the portions are so degraded that 'scholars' guessed at the parchment words that were missing. While interesting, a disappointment as a whole.

1.0 out of 5 stars How to make money on the back of a fashion 30 July 2012
By Renaud Olgiati - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
By using both a big typeface and a wide line-spacing, the author (or his publisher) has managed to bloat the number of the pages in this book to a thin 157.

Of those, only 24 are devoted to historical, theological or philological introductions to the texts, all the rest are filled by the translations of the gospels themselves.

The part advertised in the title as: "Inside The Da Vinci Code & Holy Blood, Holy Grail" takes exactly three lines; neither those two books nor their authors are even mentioned in the bibliography which almost exclusively lists other translations of the apocryphal gospels, to the well-nigh complete exclusion of works _on_ the apocrypha itself.

If you are looking for a work that will explain to you how the apocrypha supports (or not) the works of Baigent and Brown, better read The Gnostic Gospels, or if you prefer a lighter style The Complete Idiot's Guide to the Gnostic Gospels.

In short, very disappointing.

I was not pleased with the 3 part composite for the gospel of Thomas.
This made it hard to follow and required rereading to find the true meaning.
