Reviews - What do our customers think?
the truth hurts  May 27, 2004
The truth hurts thats why the greeks are christians not gnostics. If you want history not speculation and heresay buy this book.
It appears that some people don't want people to read both sides and draw their own conclusions. These people are never ever "open minded". They are cultists looking to sell their "knowledge" and slander the truth. Remember St Paul-wolves with perverse teachings. These are "pagels' gnostics". I would also suggest V Lossky for the byzantine angle and clarification from the ancient Greeks themselves. It's kinda like "not out of africa" for the gnostics greek haters.
Makes a good fly-swatter  Mar 22, 2000
A tedious and rather biased rehash of Hans Jonas' "The Gnostic Religion: The Message of an alien God and the beginnings of Christianity." Although Jonas' view of Gnosticism is outdated, it contains much useful background information on the various Gnostic movements. Pheme Perkins has successfully drained away all the gold from Jonas and kept only the dross. Elaine Pagel's book, the Gnostic Gospels, is far more open-minded, far more original,and far better researched. Buy Pagels, not this!
