Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 2005, a disgruntled archivist at the Vatican Library made contact with revisionist historians Timothy Freke and Peter Gandy, claiming that the Vatican was secretly housing a number of unpublished “heretical” Gnostic Christian texts. He presented Freke and Gandy with a facsimile copy of an ancient manuscript, which is presented to the public for the first time in this book.

This gospel will shock academics and Christians alike. It makes the extraordinary claim that the long-awaited “Second Coming of Christ” has already happened; and it also explores the intimate relationship between Mary Magdalene and Jesus, his “Beloved Disciple.”       And, perhaps most controversial of all, it reveals Jesus as a Gnostic master with a zany sense of humor and an upbeat message. As Jesus says himself in the text: “Death is coming. Life is foreplay.”

About the Author

Timothy Freke has an honors degree in philosophy and is the author of more than 20 books. He is a keynote speaker at major conferences and is regularly featured in the media internationally, as well as on websites such as Ken Wilber’s “Integral Naked.” He has appeared in the History Channel documentary Beyond the Da Vinci Code, as well as several other programs about that work . . . and he is now completely fed up with talking about that damn book! He runs seminars in the USA, Europe, and South Africa exploring the experience of gnosis.        Peter Gandy is a mysterious recluse about whom little is known.
