Thomas: The Other Gospel is a book to answer many questions, silence some speculations about the Church, and to trace the history of an ancient document. Perrin makes available a high level of biblical scholarship to the general public. Why was not the Gospel of Thomas included in the Christian canon? What does the book reveal about early Christianity? What can the book say to us now in the twenty-first century? Perrin addresses these heated questions with wit and scholarship that is unparalleled.
Nicholas Perrin is Associate Professor of New Testament at Wheaton College Graduate School, Illinois, and the author of Thomas and Tatian: The Relationship between the Gospel of Thomas and the Diatessaron and coeditor, with Mark Goodacre, of Questioning Q.
