Description - The Gospel Of The Second Coming by Peter Gandy
At last the long awaited sequel to the Bible has arrived. Gnostic scholars Freke and Gandy present a post-modern gospel for the 21st century, which is a profoundly satirical parable about the journey to self-knowledge.
Jesus is back, but this time with a zany sense of humour, and he wants to set the record straight. He wants to prove that Freke and Gandy's controversial theory about the origins of Christianity is right. So he sets out to convince his disciples that he's really not an historical figure, but rather a character in an allegorical myth, which encodes ancient spiritual teachings.
Jesus doesn't really exist, because he's a character in a story in the mind of the author. And this is important because the deep message Jesus has returned to reveal is that the reader doesn't really exists either. Life is like a story and we all exist as characters in the mind of the Author of All.
The Gospel of the Second Coming is a life-out-loud book which irreverently explores the deep message of Gnostic Christianity. It presents a vision of the original teachings of Christianity that some will find offensive, but other totally life-affirming. As Jesus says himself in the text: "Death is coming. Life is foreplay."
