On the heels of his New York Times besteller, Breaking the Da Vinci Code , New Testament expert Darrell Bock, in an easy-to-understand writing style, helps readers examine the claims about missing "secret" gospels and other early forms of Christianity. Bock presents samples of extra-biblical materials and compares them to biblical texts, enabling readers to make their own judgments.
