Lost in the furor in the TV tabloids surrounding the DaVinci Code, the tomb of Jesus, the Shroud of Turin, etc. is the purported discovery of a gospel by Judas, presented by Pagels and King along with a discussion of the early history of the Church. As a former altar boy, I take most of these 'discoveries' with a very large grain of salt. They do tend to come in bunches, don't they. Still, this book has received some critical praise and I would certainly recommend that anyone interested in the early Church listen to this audiobook if only to see a fresh point of view on the teachings of Christ.
