Among the Gospels of the early Christian Church stands a document so provocative that it was banned by the Church and kept out of the orthodox Bible. The Gospel of Thomas contains "secret sayings of the living Jesus" that the politically organized church tried desperately to destroy. The question is: why? Insights from the Secret Teachings of Jesus gives us a powerful clue, and provides guidance in understanding this beautiful and wonderful collection of Jesus' teachings. The book reaches inside the reader and awakens a slumbering spirit. It is like listening to Jesus speak, and in hearing, one comes to understand why his teachings alarmed the ordinary, and enlivened those who longed for a deeper reality.
