Abstract:

Is Jesus who you think he is? Perhaps you've heard the recent buzz about "alternative Christianities" and "new gospels." Speculations have shown up in magazines, documentaries, popular fiction, and even on the big screen. Much of the controversy stems from a library of ancient texts found at Nag Hammadi, Egypt. The Missing Gospels explores these archaeological finds and addresses a "new school" of thought that believes they should radically alter traditional views of Jesus and early Christianity. Darrell L. Bock takes you on a tour of the new claims as well as the controversial writings, examining their origins and comparing them with traditional sources. The Missing Gospels will help you understand the messages of all of these writings so you can form your own opinion. - Publisher.
