A Princeton religion professor and author of scholarly books on the Bible brings the story of Thomas’s gospel to bear on the historical issues that were contested during the early centuries of Christianity. Discover-ed in a cave 60 years ago, Thomas’s Gospel contradicted the gospel of John and portrayed a Christianity that was too ambiguous about Jesus’s divinity and too populist for the doctrinaire Catholic hierarchy. Lyrical writing and fascinating historical details make this an enchanting and compelling look at early church politics. A must hear for listeners wanting uncensored history and more flexibility in their own discernment of what Jesus can teach us about the spiritual life. T.W.
