It is meant to be a guidebook, that is, a translation of the sayings into daily practice. The goal of such practice is to become Jesuss twin. This does not, of course, mean becoming an olive-skinned, bearded Mediterranean peasant wearing sandals. It is more about manifesting in our lives the same Christ consciousness revealed in the person we know as Jesus of Nazareth.from the IntroductionIn the decades since its discovery, the Gospel of Thomas has intrigued people of all faiths around the world. Shedding new light on the origins of Christianity, the Gospel of Thomas raises questions about whether the New Testaments version of Jesuss teachings is entirely accurate and complete. In the Gospel of Thomas we see Jesus as a wisdom-loving sage, sharing aphorisms about the value of the present and each persons role in the creation of the Kingdom of God here on earth. But these inspiring sayings can leave you wondering, "What next?"Now you can learn how to start applying Jesuss wisdom to your own lifeand, in turn, to the world around you. This unique guidebook leads you through Thomas, offering practices that help you translate Jesuss wisdom into a more fulfilling, enriching daily life, including: Becoming a Spiritual Adult Sorting Out the Old and the New Being a Healing Presence Daring to Be a City on a Hill Gods Reign Calls for Ready Hands Spirituality Is Not Skygazing And much more …Ron Miller is the chair of the Religion Department at Lake Forest College in Lake Forest, Illinois, where he has taught for thirty years, and co-founder of Common Ground, an adult education group for interfaith religious study and dialogue since 1975.
