    As I suspect we all know in the quiet crannies of our hearts, happiness isn't something we can grab with our hands. From the way in which European culture treated children to innovations in medicine, from literacy and higher education to the very rise of democracy a line — often a straight line — can be drawn from the teachings of Jesus to these revolutionary cultural improvements. The book is both challenging and fresh. And they came and filled both boats, so that they began to sink. Whether it's a cross found atop a church steeple or one naturally etched in nature by the junction of two branches, this book celebrates the ancient symbol.

    This is a brilliant work and lends unexpected practical insight into the teachings of Jesus for readers at every stage of discipleship. I have drawn from it often, and think anyone who teaches or preaches could use it profitably for personal inspiration, of course, but for accumulating stories and illustrations and historical stuff. But the secret gospel contains a more primitive version of the story, and it also includes an account of an "initiation", in which Jesus and Lazarus spend the night together. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables so that they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding.

    Travelogue, spirituality, and theological reflection combine with wit and wisdom and human insight. I suppose others have done books like this, but this is the stand-out. Internal evidence indicates that this gospel was written during the second century, which means that Judas Iscariot couldn't have been the real author. These teachings are then described in detail. Thus, only the select group of people who could interpret the gospel correctly would gain any benefit from it.
