The so called "Other Bible" is just a collection you can most likely
find at any larger bookstore. As with the "Gnostic Bible" it should
be seen in the context of the intent of the editors. You can find
most of these texts online for free at http://www.gnosis.org/
(Icybrethovhecate need not have suggested these texts to Mike, since
it is Mike's church that has put these texts online and Mike is well
versed in these sources).
Many of these texts in both the "Other Bible" and the "Gnostic
Bible" are texts you will also find in the Nag Hammadi. The writings
of Ptolemy, along with the writings of Theodotus and Heracleon (also
both important Valentinian sources) are found in heresiological
sources.... again all found on the Gnosis.org site I mentioned above.
All in all, if you want to explore Gnosticism then the Nag Hammadi
Library is BY FAR the general collection to get. Of course, the
recently translated "Gospel of Judas" (edt. Kasser Meyer, Wurst) is
also part of the same genre and widely available. If you read the
notes it is actually kind of a good intro to Gnosticism in general.
