Those Curious about Church History
Read in June, 2007
I think this is an excellent book and study of the different Orthodox texts in contrast to the Gnostic texts, their contents, dating, and analysis. As Bock points out the New School of Early Church History has tried a revisionist leap without much data to support their claims of the early dating of the Gnostic equality to the Orthodox Christian Faith. This book came out around the same time as the whole Gospel of Judas thing, but he does touch on it briefly.
