The Gospel of Thomas: A New Commentary
A new introduction and commentary on the Gospel of Thomas was published earlier this year: Simon J. Gathercole, The Gospel of Thomas: Introduction and Commentary (Leiden: Brill, 2014). Such detailed studies of the many fascinating extra-canonical texts of early Christianity are so few that it is a cause for celebration whenever one appears. And in this case, it’s from a scholar with an established record of earlier and respected publications on this particular text.
You can see the publisher’s information here. Again, as with so many good scholarly books in the field, this one is prohibitively expensive. But one hopes that in due course a soft-back edition will be released and people other than Bill Gates will be able to purchase it!
