Cptic Christian thought,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fifth Gospel: The Gospel of Thomas Comes of Age (Paperback)
Found in 1945 and first appearing in translation from the Coptic in 1959 this is based on recent scholarship. Here is a series of the sayings of Christ, many easily recognisable from canonical gospels, but without any story line. Some will seem strange or even wrong but they offer a glimpse into an early Christian church. The authors describe its finding, help to place this gospel in time, suggest its authorship and its value in the understanding of early Christian thought.
