The Unauthorized VersionBook - 2007
A clear and compact guide to the extraordinary truth about Jesus, his life and his teachings. For the last 2,000 years, Christians and the curious have relied on the few Gospels in the New Testament to understand Jesus and his story. But there were dozens of other Gospels that were written about Jesus, which paint a very different picture of his life and teachings. Here, finally, is a book that offers a thorough, succinct, and accessible explanation of the alternative gospels-where they're from, who wrote them, and what they have to tell us about Jesus. Jesus: The Unauthorized Version explains these writings and includes the key excerpts from the Gnostic gospels and other texts about key issues, such as his relationship with Mary Magdalene and their offspring.
