    1. Bock seeks to show the weakness of the popular ideas that other Christian faiths developed parallel to orthodoxy but simply orthodoxy won out Tho a bit technical and it takes an effort to read and learn the issues, it is worthwhile He counters ideas of the new school of Walter Bauer, and modern popular writings of Bart Ehrman and Dan Brown, etc He proceeds by examining a large sampling of the new materials, especially those like the Gospel of Thomas found at Nag Hammadi and a sampling of the Bib [...]
