Introduction to ‘Gnosticism’ packs a great deal of information and insight into marvelously readable language, offering an excellent introduction to the complex and fascinating world of early Christianity–including new discoveries that many scholars have not yet explored.”–Elaine Pagels, Princeton University

Ehrman, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
