Re: [GTh] The gospel of Thomas and Christian Wisdom
- I'd like to add my recommendation to that of Andrew Smith, who doubles as
"booklister" on Amazon and has compiled as fine a list of Thomas books as I
can imagine (http://tinyurl.com/6yjsr). In his capacity as publisher (Bardic
Press), he's performed an invaluable service in bringing Steve's
still-relevant 1983 book back into print, with a generous helping of current
reflections. Even though I have the original, I'll be buying the 2nd edition
for sure! It was an inspiration to me when I first read it, and it remains
p.s.: Steve isn't the list-owner. That would be me.
- I've really enjoyed reading your discussions on this topic.
I would suggest that LOVE and UNITY and the INDWELLING of the presense of
God make up the harmony, that is played in the key of forgiveness in
virtually all the stories related to the historical Jesus. This is
certainly true of biblical accounts, and well as the Gospel of Thomas IMO.
Over the years I've come to believe that the Gospel of Thomas wasn't really
put into any particular order. It does indeed have all the earmarkings of a
list that was penned "on the road" with a man named Jesus. I think the
harmony or order of that song was played out in real life between teacher
and student while on the road. That's my opinion anyway. :)
