Description
According to the ancient Gnostics—the early Christians who produced such controversial texts as the recently rediscovered Gospel of Judas—we are all capable of gnosis, or direct knowledge of the true reality that lies behind the material world. Andrew Phillip Smith, a scholar who has written about the lost sayings of Jesus, the Gospel of Philip, and other Gnostic subjects, here offers an accessible layman's introduction to this long-suppressed philosophy as an intriguing alternative to standard Christian belief, with references to The Da Vinci Code, The Matrix, and other fictions inspired by the Gnostic worldview.
