Thomas - Love as Strong as Death
Full Product Description
Thomas appears to have a foot on both sides of the Johannine dualistic divide. He seems to be existentially at home on one side and yet ideologically at home on the other. No other character in John's gospel so tenaciously holds on to companionship with Jesus while just as resolutely distancing himself from Jesus' central teaching. Thomas breaks down the barriers between the disciples (the 'sons of light') and the world (the 'sons of darkness') that John takes pains to establish. Sylva's new work demonstrates the importance of Thomas in fully understanding the message of the Fourth Gospel.
Thomas - Love as Strong as Death by Dennis Sylva was published by Bloomsbury Publishing PLC in January 2013. The ISBN for Thomas - Love as Strong as Death is 9780567221520.
