“Judas Thomas, while you are still
in the world, attend to the questions of your heart,
and it shall be revealed to you;
who you are,
why you are here,
and how you will come to be…”
THE LIVING ONE
Caravan to Cairns
Two young men, a road trip across the Australian Outback, strange encounters in isolated settlements… and a book that will change one of them forever.
From the harsh heat of the dusty road to the cool of the Temple, two stories… one immediate, one timeless… intertwine to illuminate each other.
Many scholars believe that the Gospel of Thomas preserves a glimpse into the oral tradition of the Essenes. The book is a collection of sayings, parables and dialogues attributed to Jesus. In this unique interpretation author and essayist, Stuart France brings the oral tradition to life, retelling the Gospel in his own words, in the way it may have been told around the hearth-fires of our fore-fathers.
Accompanied by in-depth comments which draw upon the Mystery School Tradition, The Living One provides a new window on an age-old story.
“… fascinating and unique …” Amazon review
