"DeConick's groundbreaking work should now be the starting point for all future work on the Gospel of Thomas." Birger A. Pearson, University of California, Santa Barbara, Religious Studies Review "The commentary, the bulk of the book, is itself very good. Each section, whether a few lines or a few paragraphs, begins with the authors own translation of the Coptic text...The clearly organized and (graphically) well-laid-out sections help the reader move efficiently to points of interest...Opposing viewpoints are given fair space, responses are made, and conclusions are drawn. Fresh insights regarding translational, interpretive, or text-critical issues are not uncommon...when it comes to writing a critical commentary on Thomas, one cannot hope to master it all. Deconick's book is worth having on the shelf because she comes as close as does anybody." -Nicholas Perrin, Bulletin for Biblical Research, 18. -- Nicholas Perrin "There is a wealth of information in this volume and the standard formatting makes it readily accessible. This is a very helpful discussion which will undoubtedly generate much focused and fruitful investigation of this enigmatic text." -- Paul Foster, School of Divinity, University of Edinburgh * Expository Times * 'DeConick's approach is an instance of a relatively new paradigm for assessing intertextual relationships that might help scholars avoid some "dead ends" into which a purely literary paradigm sometimes leads... Her large-scale study of the Gospel of Thomas addresses some very important questions, and it is a particular pleasure to see her interpreting the Gospel of Thomas without the label "gnostic." This commentary on the Gospel of Thomas is a valuable tool with many important observations and easy access to related source material and scholarly discussion. Thus, apart from its standing as a scholarly study, it provides a most convenient starting point for further studies on the Gospel of Thomas. One need not agree with all of DeConick's conclusions, but even a more critical reader will be happy to consult this rich yet concise commentary' Stephan Witetschek, University of Cambridge, UK in RBL 05/2008 -- John Painter * Review of Biblical Literature *
