Average Rating of 3.5 from 2 reviews:
An enjoyable and informative book. You can find interesting information in it.
C. Alan Loewen
Normally I do not review anonymous works of non-fiction, especially, when the work is not truly anonymous. The handle "Lonely Soul" gives me some inkling this is possibly a work with some emotional baggage attached.
Nonetheless, for people who have a passing interest in New Testament curiosities, the work is a passable way to spend the evening neither challenging belief or unbelief if the reader has already spent some time with C. S. Lewis, N. T. Wright, Norman L. Geisler, or any Biblical scholar who goes beyond the fluff of Christian writers Joel Osteen or T.D. Jakes.
The work shows some evidence of scholarly research, but the book is weakened by the author's belief that Jesus was nothing more than a great moral teacher (evidently he never read or heard of C.S. Lewis' trilemma argument), along with his fascination for gnostic gospels that very few serious scholars take seriously.
The author's website is located at http://www.gospel-mysteries.net/ and he retains his anonymity due to fear of death threats from fanatics of all stripes. Sadly, religion and politics can bring out both the best and the worst in people. If a reader becomes upset over this particular work (or even this review), I would encourage psychotherapy.
