The Thunder: Perfect Mind

Full Product Description

This is the first book-length treatment in English of the Nag Hammadi text, The Thunder: Perfect Mind - a poem of "I am" statements that has garnered a strong following in mainstream culture. This book offers a fresh, current translation (with detailed Coptic annotations) and ten chapters of introductory analysis of the text. Approaching the text from socio-historical, literary, and postmodern gender-theoretical frameworks, the editors situate Thunder as an early Christian text - away from the now suspect category of "Gnosticism" - and offer conclusions on its possible ancient meanings, as well as its interpretive possibilities for the present moment.

The Thunder: Perfect Mind by Celene Lillie; Hal Taussig; Jared Calaway; Justin Lasser; Maia Kotrosits was published by Palgrave Macmillan in January 2011. The ISBN for The Thunder: Perfect Mind is 9780230105638.
