Publisher Comments:

Gnosticism was a wide-ranging religious movement of the first millennium C.E. whose adherents sought salvation through knowledge and mystical experience. Sample the gnostics in their own words with this unique book-and-audio set. The book, The Gnostics and Their Scriptures, provides a brief yet thorough introduction to gnostic philosophy, while the audio program allows you to encounter the gnostic scriptures as the living oral tradition they were intended to be. The selections are taken from among the most important—and most poetically beautiful—of all gnostic texts, including the Gospels of Thomas, Judas, and Mary Magdalene. Includes 3 CDs. <iframe title="YouTube video player" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/rx7uvwrdCrE" width="640" frameborder="0" height="390"> </iframe>

Synopsis:

The gnostics were religious thinkers who believed that salvation was found through mystical knowledge and personal religious experience. Their scriptures, composed over more than a millennium, are texts of remarkable beauty.Now you can experience that beauty directly by listening to the texts in poetic readings by the translators. For their audio reading, Willis Barnstone and Marvin Meyer have chosen the most captivating poetry from their larger collection, The Gnostic Bible. Included with the audio program is a book, The Gnostics and Their Scriptures, which serves as the perfect short introduction to the gnostic movement.
