This title provides the first comprehensive analysis of the stages of development of the Gospel of Thomas, including a reconstruction, translation, and analysis of the original form of this gospel, the Kernel Gospel of Thomas, as well as the later accretions. The author develops a complete analysis of the origin and meaning of Gospel of Thomas as it developed through various oral and literary compositional stages, from the earliest apocalyptic Kernel Gospel from Jerusalem (30-50 C.E.) to its final form as an early Christian mystical Gospel with Alexandrian affinities (90 C.E.).

MEDIA REVIEWS
"DeConick's groundbreaking work should now be the starting point for all future work on the Gospel of Thomas."
Birger A. Pearson, University of California, Santa Barbara, Religious Studies Review

'DeConick's approach is an instance of a relatively new paradigm for assessing intertextual relationships that might help scholars avoid some "dead ends" into which a purely literary paradigm sometimes leads... Her large-scale study of the Gospel of Thomas addresses some very important questions, and it is a particular pleasure to see her interpreting the Gospel of Thomas without the label "gnostic." This commentary on the Gospel of Thomas is a valuable tool with many important observations and easy access to related source material and scholarly discussion. Thus, apart from its standing as a scholarly study, it provides a most convenient starting point for further studies on the Gospel of Thomas. One need not agree with all of DeConick's conclusions, but even a more critical reader will be happy to consult this rich yet concise commentary'

Stephan Witetschek, University of Cambridge, UK in RBL 05/2008--Sanford Lakoff "Review of Biblical Literature "
