I was slightly disappointed that the audio cd did not directly recite EVERYTHING that the scriptures' reveal is said in these gospels, but the book on the other hand was very illuminating and I can certainly recommend reading the scriptures that did not make it into the New Testament, as they almost exactly recite what Jesus taught there anyway and in some parts, e.g. Gospel of Thomas, it further explains what He was teaching in some parables by quoting Jesus further than for example Matthew did. The item arrived on time and in perfect condition and it is a compelling read.

This is all the information one needs to study the gnostic religion. A very thick heavy book and well worth the money. I bought a couple of smaller versions that only have parts of this book thinking I was saving money, but I was wrong. This is the book to buy.

This is a valuable addition to the home library in my growing shelf of heresy and biblical analysis texts as it delivers a lot of the source material reasonably unscathed, together with erudite commentaries.

Probably not for everybody. I think one would need a pretty developed interest in the subject to gain much by reading it cover to cover, and a much better introductory commentary would be Elaine Pagels' The Gnostic Gospels with The Gnostic Bible providing background and rich detail for Pagels' framework,

This is a fairly chunky book, and mine lives on a shelf by the front door where it's handy for pulling out and scaring Jehovah's Witnesses. As a last resort it can be used to welt 'em over the head with.
