Millions of readers have turned to Elaine Pagels for her clear and insightful books about the Gnostic Gospels—the teachings of Jesus that have been lost for centuries. Sounds True is proud to present the first widely available audio recording of this extraordinary scholar as she explores the text that has changed the way many of us think about the message of Christ: The Gospel of Thomas.

The stunning archaeological discovery of these lost scriptures of early Christianity in 1945 has revealed exciting new dimensions to the wisdom passed on from Jesus to his disciples. In her analysis of this revived gospel, Dr. Pagels reveals that Thomas was not a doubter of Christ; rather, his thoughtful inquiries reflected and brought out the deepest truths that Jesus had to offer.

Thomas' account depicts a Jesus who taught us that the Kingdom of Heaven is not a separate realm, but a state of divinity that we all can reach. He is even called the twin of Jesus—a metaphor for the possibility that all of us can achieve the same state of divine grace embodied by Jesus.

Elaine Pagels has riveted readers and audiences everywhere with her clear and provocative explorations of the testaments of early Christianity. The Gospel of Thomas gives you a first opportunity to join her in charting a wider horizon of Christian spirituality.

Review for The Gospel of Thomas Review by daniel gryte g

Elaine is a wonderful teacher. If someone had told me that I would be riveted from beginning to end on a CD about long-forgotten gospels, I would not have believed them. Elaine's boundless enthusiasm and world-class knowledge make for an effortless and valuable journey about where our religious belief systems ACTUALLY come from. I would have loved more speculation about what sort of mystical practices these early Christians actually were performing regularly.

Review for The Gospel of Thomas Review by Clare Pelkey

This provides readers with an even broader view of the message of Jesus. It's time to recognize other translations and perspectives and their meaning for us today.

Review for The Gospel of Thomas Review by John Jennings

I am a longtime fan of Ms Pagels work. This recording of a live talk is right up there with her other excellent work.

Review for The Gospel of Thomas Review by Jeff Eagle

This is not a real book. Just a couple of talks about the book.
Very unsatisfying.
