    The Gnostic Gospels provides engaging listening for those seeking a broader perspective on the early development of Christianity. Author and noted scholar Elaine Pagels suggests that Christianity could have developed quite differently if Gnostic texts had become part of the Christian canon.

    Colin says: "A must-read"
    "Stimulating exploration of early Christian Thought"

    William Kennedy’s latest novel is a tale of revolutionary intrigue, heroic journalism, crooked politicians, drug-running gangsters, Albany race riots, and the improbable rise of Fidel Castro. The epic journey of Quinn carries him through the nightclubs and jungles of Cuba and into the newsrooms and racially charged streets of Albany on the day than Robert F. Kennedy is assassinated in 1968. The odyssey brings Quinn and his exotic Cuban wife, Renata, face-to-face with the darkest facets of human nature.

    Denise says: "WONDERFUL NOVEL"
    "A disappointing book."

    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The narrator was good, but the story was confused and not very well written. I could not finish it.
