Craig Barnes: Elaine Pagels


Elaine Pagels has found in the Nag Hammadi gospels a message of personal transformation and clarity that would make a modern psychologist proud.  As the nation's most celebrated interpreter of these fourth century scrolls, Pagels discusses the contrast between the Gospel of Thomas and the Gospel of John and the mechanisms of church politics that brought the latter into the acceptable canon while condemning Thomas as heresy from which he has only been redeemed by the discovery in 1945 of these ancient scrolls.
