A Book to Read and Love: The Gnostic Gospels - Elaine Pagels


A short summary of The Gnostic Gospels:

All you ever wanted to know about early Christian Gnostics but were afraid to ask.

My favorite quote from the book:

"What is the source of religious authority?"



Questions to ponder while reading The Gnostic Gospels:

Have you ever explored ideas outside of your religion?

Can there be wisdom found in sources other than the bible?

My thoughts about The Gnostic Gospels:

I love exploring the history of Christianity and its offshoots.

A very thorough work on the Nag Hammadi.

Not for the faint of heart.
