5.0 out of 5 stars nine only because of difficulty reading due to missing text, 2 Jun 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Nag Hammadi Library in English: The Definitive Translation of the Gnostic Scriptures. Complete in One Volume (Paperback)
I read the Nag Hammadi Library after reading Pistis Sophia and I Highly Recommended this to familiarize with wording and text style.I spent the better part of two years reading the various chapters.This much time was needed for me due to self spiritual paths ventured upon prior to reading said texts.It really takes a sharp mind and pure heart to accept the knowledge briefed upon in this book.The knowledge enters your heart and soul rather than your mind and rational self, actually leaving your rational self in a bit of a fog.Many times I found myself unable to stay awake after reading a chapter or two,but was awakened feeling like somehow I understood.Some of my favorite parts were The Dialogue Of The Saviour;where Jesus returned to teach his disciples on the lessons to be gained in this and other spiritual planes.Book Of Genesis;where I learned that the true Adam and Eve were named Sophia (Pistis Sophia) and Barbelo (Jesus) and that who else would be the true Adam but Jesus? Anyway without the grace of God Sophia and Adamus created the chaos.Here.That explains why God sent Jesus(Barbelo) as our saviour so that we all could be in some way like him and continue with the nature of things Bettering ourselves for the good of all.That part explained the Why? I had always placed on this subject.I learned alot about myself while reading this book on my intellect, spiritual self, adapting to new ways of thinking and seeing. I guess you could say that this book has in many ways changed me.The part I find most rewarding is that it was all for the better.If you are an intelligent open-minded adult looking for a challenge I truly reccommend this one. Also for the reader looking for answers into religion without looking into religions. The various stlyes of writing I found very romantic and full of emotion. Truly a book for the reader looking to feel the words and hear the meaning.The rewards you find may surprise you.
