By setting selected sayings from the Gospel of Thomas alongside the disciple's own words from the Fourth Gospel, this book challenges the myth of 'doubting Thomas', arguing that 'incertainty' is an essential element of any authentic faith experience. In an age of increasing anti-semitism and religious intolerance, it also affirms the importance of the Gospel of Thomas in recovering the essential Jewishness of Jesus. Far from undermining the Christian tradition of the Church and its canonical scriptures, this book shows how the Gospel of Thomas complements both, inviting the reader to reconsider the healthy significance of the Apostle of the Enquiring Mind.
