A Friendly Guide to The Lost Gospels, written by Christopher J Monaghan CP,  is the latest edition to our celebrated Friendly Guide series.

In 1945 near the town of Nag Hammadi in Upper Egypt, an Arab farmer discovered an earthenware jar filled with thirteen papyrus books . These books were Coptic translations of ancient texts originally written in Greek. Included in this collection were the Gospel of Thomas, the Gospel of Philip, the Gospel of Truth and the Gospel to the Egyptians.

These texts, along with the Gospel of Mary and the Gospel of Judas, are often referred to as Gnostic Gospels or Gnostic Apocrypha – being influenced to varying degrees by a movement that took its name from the word for knowledge (gnosis).

A Friendly Guide to The Lost Gospels presents an overview of this vast array of writings. Readers will gain an appreciation of their contexts and content, plus develop a deeper understanding of the people of faith that produced and preserved these texts.
