The Gnostic Gospels
by Elaine Pagels
The 1945 discovery at Nag Hammadi of sacred texts that never made it into the Christian canon has fundamentally changed scholars' view of early Christianity. In this highly readable work, Elaine Pagels explores these "gnostic" texts, suggesting that Christianity would look pretty different if the Nag Hammadi finds had received the church's sanction.
