Building on the success of his best selling book Breaking the Da Vinci Code, Darrell L. Bock examines the claims of scholars who suggest that in the first century there were many Christianities that were eventually drowned out by the group that would later come to represent orthodoxy. In The Missing Gospels Dr. Bock compares and contrasts these ?alternative Christian? movements with what he terms ?traditional Christianity?.
Every layman needs a copy of this important contribution to the debate on early Christianity. Not only will it help in debunking certain misconceptions about the early faith, but it will serve as a primer for the study of alternative religious movements in antiquity. This could certainly be used to teach an adult Bible study?in fact it seems designed for just such a purpose, having review questions asked at the end of each chapter.
