The recently discovered GOSPEL OF THOMAS was edited out of the New Testament. The lecture recorded here is a fascinating primer on the uniqueness of Thomas's account, its revelations about Mary Magdalene and Christianity's place among religions of the time, and the ways Thomas's message of personal development threatened Christianity's early leaders. The highly respected author and college professor is passionate about her subject in these extemporaneous talks, but the thin and uneven recordings of the live lectures conspire to make her sound more fragile than urgent. Only the depth and breadth of her insights overcome this weakness to make this an essential audio lesson. T.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 07]
