Book Overview
What were Jesus' original teachings, and how do they differ from the story told by the Christian church? What is the real story of early Christianity? Can we find a Jesus that is relevant as a spiritual guide for people today? These and many other questions are addressed in this popular presentation of the teachings of this mystical Christian text. With the discovery of the Gospel of Thomas in 1945, scholars now believe we have a document closer to Jesus' actual words than we have ever possessed before. Open yourself to the wisdom of Jesus in Thomas and allow these sayings to seep into your soul. -John Beverly Butcher, author of The Tao of Jesus Read The Way of Thomas. Compelling and well-written, this book will broaden the Jesus debate of our century. -John Shelby Spong, author of The Sins of Scripture
