It looks interesting at first (I like the font type and size), but after a while it gets tiring. Turns out I’m not that interested in learning the details about groups that no longer exist. The essence is this: Gnostics believe in the ultimate God, not in the Biblical God. The degree of extremism varies from one subgroup to another.The author’s writing style is a little bothersome. Why does he keep plugging in “I” for no reason? Carrying the narrative in a third-person in books like this would’ve worked very well. And he sounds condescending, too.
