      There's also J. K. Elliott's updated version of M. R. James:

      J.K. Elliott (Editor), Montague R. James (Translator), _The
      Apocryphal New Testament : A Collection of Apocryphal Christian
      Literature in an English Translation_ (Oxford: Clarendon, 1998)

      I don't know of any good introductions except, perhaps, Koester or
      Pagels. Majella Franzmann's _Jesus in the Nag Hammadi Writings_
      is a kind of synthesis of Christology in Nag Hammadi documents. I
      would also be interested to hear of any book recommendations on
      this topic.

      With regard to the Noncanonical Home page, there is a new URL:
      http://wesley.nnu.edu/noncanon. However, they have not fixed the
      URLs on that page. Simply subsitute "nnu.edu" in each URL that
      currently reads "nnc.edu" and you can get to the correct pages. I've
      provided some info. at http://www.ntgateway.com/noncanon.htm.
      They are aware of the problem, but say that they don't at the moment
      have time to fix it!
