Description

Zusatztext "Arresting . . . brilliant . . . this book illuminates the angels with which we must wrestle to come to the truth of our bedeviling spritual problems." Boston Globe "Pagels is a wonderful writer. . . . She has a gift for bringing ancient texts alive. . . . Fascinating." San Francisco Chronicle "Lively reading . . . a book that makes familiar concepts disturbingly fresh and provocative." The New York Times "Pagels has achieved something important. . . . Thoughtful scholarly works that are also original and adventurous are not common. The Origin of Satan is such a work! and we should be correspondingly grateful." New York Review of Books "Lucid and closely reasoned. . . . Pagels remains always a lively writer who discerns the human implications of esoteric texts and scholarly disputes." Chicago Tribune Informationen zum Autor Elaine Pagels is the Harrington Spear Paine Professor of Religion at Princeton University and the author of Reading Judas, The Gnostic Gospels-winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award and the National Book Award-and the New York Times bestseller Beyond Belief.
