Thirty Essays on the Gospel of Thomas

These thirty Essays are independent of each other yet are all related to or derived from a study of the Gospel of Thomas. Thus they look at it from different points of view. They are the result of considering every possible aspect of the Gospel and its origin.

The study focused on the Gospel itself, without being influenced by other ideas about the purpose and nature of Jesus' mission.

The early Essays in the book relate to matter-of-fact features of the Gospel and how it came into existence and survived.

Later Essays move on to expound crucial spiritual Teachings of Jesus. They make many references to the sayings in the Gospel and show how they link together into a woven whole.

The set of Essays are of inestimable value in providing an understanding of the Gospel of Thomas.
