The Lost Scriptures
SECOND HAND paperback, a bit scuffed round the edges, but good reading copy. A companion volume to Bart Ehrman's "Lost Christianities," this book offers an anthology of up-to-date and readable translations of many non-canonical writings from the first centuries after Christ - texts that have been for the most part lost or neglected for almost two millennia. Here is an array of remarkably varied writings from early Christian groups whose visions of Jesus differ dramatically from our contemporary understanding. Includes excerpts from many of the Nag Hammadi texts.
