Freke and Gandy's Gospel of the Second Coming belongs to exactly the same species as the Gnostic Gospels of Nag Hammadi. Like them, it is a fictive dialogue presenting its authors' best insights as if Jesus had said them. Okay, it's a lot funnier than the Nag Hammadi books, but I've always thought satire is the true prophecy anyway. Read it if you dare! (Robert M. Price Professor of Theology and Scriptural Studies and the author of Jesus is Dead)Synopsis:
Finally, here is the Gospel that everyone's been waiting for in which Jesus gets chance to put the record straight and show how the story of life has been manipulated over time by politicians and religious zealots. This is the book that Gandy and Freke believe Jesus would have wanted to have written. In 'his' gospel, Jesus leads people away from the thinking that has birthed hatred and numerous wars towards a true gnosis or knowing of self. Irreverent, challenging, extremely funny, and delicately informed by a profound spiritual message - this gospel is the book that Freke and Gandy have been longing to write. They consider it their best work to date and hope that it will prompt debate, discussion and promote a movement aiming to counteract religious division.
