By (author) Christine Folan
The ultimate guide to understanding the 114 sacred texts known as ‘The Gospel of Thomas’, revealing ancient Christian teachings and allowing for deep self-reflection and introspection.
Discovered in 1945 in Egypt, but likely dating back to around 150-200AD, the Gospel of Thomas, is a collection of codices, each containing an affirmation or advice.
Academic discourse has plagued the Gospel's modern existence, especially in relation to its English translation. Resultantly, a number of densely unintelligible translations have been produced, which use heavy ecclesiastical language and a biblical approach, obscuring the meaning of the text to laypeople.
Now, Christine Folan provides a revolutionary approach, unpicking the Gospel's complexities, and providing a sensitive and effective way of understanding and ‘seeing’ the hidden, yet deeply profound, secrets of this ancient text.
Folan's companion guide provides excerpts from the text alongside her own visceral and deep rooted interpretations, which will enlighten readers to the endless potential which can be gleaned from the Gospel.
Guiding the reader with clarity and conviction, The Companion Guide to The Gospel of Thomas provides a way for readers to use the Gospel as a vessel for introspection, allowing them to search deep within themselves for their own unique truth and meaning.
The book contains real life case studies of people whose lives have been drastically changed by the teachings of the Gospel, as well as suggested further reading for each chapter.
The Companion Guide to The Gospel of Thomas is a manual for the practical application of spiritual principles, challenging readers not only to make sense of this ancient text in their own unique way, but also to live its message to make profound change in their day to day lives.
