    Millions of readers have turned to Elaine Pagels for her clear and insightful books about the Gnostic Gospels, the teachings of Jesus that have been lost for centuries. Sounds True is proud to present the first widely available audio recording of this extraordinary scholar as she explores the text that has changed the way many of us think about the message of Christ: The Gospel of Thomas.

    What would have made The Gospel of Thomas better?

    The sound quality was very poor in the question/answer period. VERY poor.


    What could Elaine Pagels have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The format was mostly a waste of time. Questions from the audience were unenlightening, and answers were often evasive or shallow. Just have Elaine talk!


    Would you be willing to try another one of Elaine Pagels’s performances?

    Absolutely not.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Gospel of Thomas?

    All the Q & A. The questions were random, the answers pat or simplistic, the sound quality was TERRIBLE. It was just the sort of poor use of time for learning that you see in most university lecture hall 'conversations'.


    Any additional comments?

    I would not recommend spending more than $.99 for this. It was poor value, even on sale. Buy her books--she is much better there!
