IS JESUS WHO YOU THINK HE IS?

Perhaps you've heard the recent buzz about "alternative Christianities" and "new gospels." Speculations have shown up in magazines, documentaries, popular fiction, and even on the big screen. Much of the controversy stems from a library of ancient texts found at Nag Hammadi, Egypt. Now revolutionary questions about the Christian faith are being raised as a result of these findings:

  • Is Jesus truly a divine Savior or just a teacher of wisdom?
  • Is orthodoxy a by-product of third-century or fourth-century theologians?
  • Did Judas betray Jesus because of evil intent or a request by Jesus?
  • Does salvation include the physical body or just the soul?

Darrell L. Bock takes you on a tour of the new claims as well as the controversial writings, examining their origins and comparing them with traditional sources. With discussion questions for group or individual study at the end of each chapter, The Missing Gospels will help you understand the messages of all of these writings so you can form your own opinion. This provocative work could even change what you believe!
