'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'
