Item Description...
Early Christian mystical groups were called Gnostics, meaning those who know, because of their spiritual knowledge. Their teachers were persecuted and most documents destroyed because the Church desired a uniform set of beliefs to operate under. Pistis Sophia was the most important Gnostic work until the discovery and publication of The Nag Hammadi Library .It remains an important milestone in Gnostic research and should be part of any serious study. It is the story of how we, as spiritual beings, have fallen into the physical world. The soul is asleep, unaware of its true nature, but the purpose of this gospel is to help awaken us.

Pistis Sophia  Sep 30, 2008
Other versions may have been written better, text lacks consistancy with too many thee's and thou's. Unfortunately due to the lack of flow in the text, it can very easily be one of those books you put down and forget to pick up again.
An important historical religious writing  Aug 28, 2006
Prior to the Nag Hammandi codices there was the Pistis Sophia. These writings are very old..they date from around 100-300AD. Today we are fortunate to have these early esoteric church texts to read and study. Most of the early christian literature was labeled heretical and destroyed by the Alexandrian doctors of religious thought...there are things in there that didn't mix well with those Neoplatonists. The Pistis Sophia was purchased in 1795 and was the largest repository of Gnostic beliefs before the unearthing, in 1945, of the Nag Hammandi Library. Like time capsules, these writings have come to us, in purity, ready to be studied. They give us some very good source material for what these early churches believed.

The Pistis Sophia is about things that transpired between the resurrected Jesus, the First and Last Mystery, and his disciples. An interesting point is that those disciples included both men and women. The text is filled with involvement in the physical cosmos, purification from sin and salvation through the infinite compassion of the First Mystery. The path is layed out for the initiate to obtain an inheritance in the Light-Kingdom. To get to this level requires receiving the mysteries, and the way to get the mysteries is to be righteous and good.

Rounded with mysticism, obscurity and allegory, this codex is well worth adding to the Christian reference shelf.
Good  Sep 11, 2005
Very revealing. To learn even more about the Pistis Sophia, try The Pistis Sophia Unveiled. (0974591688)
A reverential celebration of Sophia!  Sep 5, 2005
Anyone interested in Sophia and Gnostic literature will be enthralled by this treatise. Compelling, fascinating, and engrossing. Buy this book. It is an absolute must-have.
Incredible!  Aug 25, 2005
This is the most important Gnostic work in my library. It is an invaluable reference book. This Gnostic Gospel of Jesus in its simplistic beauty is clear and easy to understand. This is a great affordable copy of an essential work.
