Contributors include Rudolph, Pagels, Grant, and Barrett.3/5(1). Gnosticism and the New Testament are two of my favorite subjects, and I'm glad this book was written. The writer does a good job of providing an overview of what is surely a broad subject. My favorite scholar of early Christian Gnosticism is Margaret Barker, and Pheme Perkins is not as exhaustive in the presentation of the ancient sacred writings as she, but still I found quite a few insights to be gleaned Cited by: Gnosis and the New Testament / by R.
