5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful scripture, 17 April 2006
This gosple contains the femine aspect of the early teachings around in christanity at the time. Mary is transformed from the scarlet woman into the wonderful interlectual gnostic that she always was. Interesting was the relationship with Peter and other appostles who at times appear to be very threatened by her knowledge and her relationship with Christ which is hinted at in the passeges leaving the reader with a clear understanding that the canonical writings never gave. What was great was the history of Mary after the crucifiction. Although i still wonder why this gosple was never choosen by the early fathers as so many women would have benefitted greatly from it. Well translated and easy to grasp.

5.0 out of 5 stars what a corker, 16 April 2006
I puchased this gospel some time ago, it astonished and amazed me that a truth of such magnitude could have been dismissed by the early church fathers. This gosple is wonderful and very revealing to say the least, i have read it three times now and still use it as a point of refrence in my study, leloup's translation is easy reading and very logical giving a clear understanding of this ancient text. It is great to have a chance to read this gosple and gain insight into the writings of other Apostles rather than the better known canonical four. If you do anything before you die read this gospel!!! recorded to be just under 2000 years old, but oh my well worth the wait. Very enjoyable read.
