Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Laughing Jesus (Paperback)
I enjoyed this book, especially the second part. First half did not hold much new information for me, but I understood the need for it and let's face it, gnostics still have an axe or two to grind with what they call "literalist" christians and admittedly, Time Freke uses the filet knife quite expertly and I always enjoy seeing a craftsman at work.
Strangely enough it's not what stayed with me after reading the book, and I suppose that was the intention as he would say, to remember the baby, not the bath water.
It was very nice to be reintroduced to the ideas and tradition of gnosticism that had interested me a long time ago but fell to the background.
This book, at least for now, had brought it back into my life again and I consider that a good thing, a chance to renew, rediscover which is a gift not as often appreciated as one might think.
