The Gospel of Thomas
This volume offers the first full commentary on the Gospel of Thomas, a work which has previously been accessible only to theologians and scholars. Valantasis provides fresh translations of the Coptic and Greek text, with an illuminating commentary, examining the text line by line. He includes a general introduction outlining the debates of previous scholars and situating the Gospel in its historical and theological contexts.
The Gospel of Thomas provides an insight into a previously inaccessible text and presents Thomas' gospel as an integral part of the canon of Biblical writings, which can inform us further about the literature of the Judeo-Christian tradition and early Christianity.

Review: The Gospel of ThomasUser Review - Rory - Goodreads
An excellent scholary study, explicating each saying with detailed examinations of context, language and alternate relationships between the saying. Great for reading straight through or for just reading a saying or 2 at random. Read full review
