In this book, Robert North shows that the Gospel of Thomas, a recently discovered first century text, was probably composed by Jesus of Nazareth and dictated to his disciple, Thomas, just as the first page indicates. North translates this work as never seen before-as poems written in the ancient Biblical arch style. He also explains each poem to bring out its intended meaning. In that process we are led to understand a Jesus quite different from the one presented by Christianity. This Jesus does not indoctrinate, but rather teaches how one can become a grand person full of inner power, stillness, joy and love for all without any regrets and worries.
