The WAY OF THOMAS: Insights for Spiritual Living from... Gospel of Thomas Book
By John R. Mabry
Are you looking for a life-giving spirituality, but feel disillusioned by
organized religion? Does "the church" seem more like the problem than
the solution? Are you attracted to Jesus, but not so much to the tradition
built up around him? You're not
alone--the earliest and most reliable collection of Jesus' teachings, The
Gospel of Thomas, says much the same thing. Yet it also contains the seeds of a
profound mysticism that can transform our view of the universe and ourselves.
Seminary professor Dr. John R. Mabry has been
studying and teaching the lost Gospel of Thomas for 20 years and has discovered
the key that unlocks the secret of Jesus' earliest and most mystical teachings,
revealing a Jesus who is more like a Zen master than a savior, and whose
teachings present something very much like a native Jewish school of Buddhism. 202 pp.
