Review by Lee Prosser - firstname.lastname@example.org
A startling book, full of revelations and lost gospel material, this nonfiction book treats the lost gospel of St. Thomas with respect and insight. The author examines how this gospel is a holy scripture of endless wisdom.
Considered one of the important gnostic text materials, its design is to guide the reader to higher grounds of personal enlightenment. A close examination of the true role of Mary Magdalene in the early church and other magical teachings is given.
Tau Malachi lives in California and has actively practiced Gnostic Christianity for thirty years, he founded the Sophia Fellowship during 1983. An insightful writer, he has the ability to present oftentimes difficult material in an open, easy to understand style of writing.
Each chapter is a verse of the gospel, examined and explained. There are 114 verses. The definition of gnostic refers to the individual who follows a dedicated path to self-realization, seeking enlightenment and liberation by way of a conscious unification with God.
An intriguing book, worth you time and interest. For those interested in Gnostic Christianity, this is a fine reference book. Well-written.
