   A must read for all Christians
The discovery of the lost and rejected gospels two thousand years after Jesus. What a great book! Elaine Pagels thanks.
   Great book and an easy read
The book is a great read and an easy read. It has provided plenty of explanations and background work. It has surpassed my interest in similar books.
   Excellent for a used product
Expectations above are high : The product was well described, which was my reason for considering the purchase of a used product. Was a bit cautious about what to expect. When the book arrived, I was pleasantly surprised to find a book that was well preserved.
   History of Christianity
I enjoyed the book, but I think it was incorrectly titled ''. The book provides insights into the history of the early Christian Church as well as the philosophical differences between Orthodox and Gnostic Christians. I hoped that the book contained a translation and interpretation of the gnostic gospels. The book only briefly discusses the text of the gnostic gospels.
   relevant and engaging
With the increase in scholarship on the early Christian era and the discovery of lost gospels and other writings such as the Papyrus Scrap, we are forced to rethink our ideas about the consistency of Christianity. Early Christianity was diverse and there was no more agreement on anything then than today. Elaine Pagels leads us through the Gnostic Gospels and Gnostic philosophy in an understandable way. This is Christianity defined by a group who was eventually rejected by Orthodox, but who left behind a different view of Christianity. It is interesting to prepare and serves to remind us that the only certainty in theology is uncertainty.
   An experience that transcends
I have felt all my life that something important was missing from my relationship with God. Reading this work helped me fill the holes that Orthodox Christianity built deep inside. Call it the mystery, call it Gnostic.
   Not the Gnostic Gospels...only a review
Here is the name of Disappointed. This is a review of the Gospels by someone. Haven 't opened it. Probably sometime, but I'd rather spend my time making my own idea about these writings.
   Read and think for yourself. You'll be glad you did!
Each Christian should read this book simply. Educational and very enlightening. Answers to all those awkward questions that you have always had in the back of your head. Because so much is retained, it becomes very clear why these books were revealed by the Bible. Highly recommended to all who are true seekers.
   Should have been titled Gnostic Feminism
Although the author is quite easy to read, there is little on the modern documents, the book seems to center around the way that actual churches have oppressed women, I am not saying that it does not have merit. But I wanted to learn more about the christian gospels, not the birth of gnostic patriarchy. Not a great reference for gnostic gospels, but a good read for women's rights. I have no problem with that, I just wanted to learn about the Gospels.
   Very well written concise book, full of historical records ...
Very well written concise book, full of historical records, that really makes you reconsider the narrative that you have learned about Christianity.
