Review of the Infancy Gospels of James and Thomas Jan 20, 2007
I found the work quite interesting. I focused more on the text rather than the extra notes provided by the author. Based on their length, I can understand one reason why these two works did not qualify for biblical inclusion. In addition, The Infancy Book of Thomas revealed human weakness in a child with devine infinite power and knowledge. Unfortunately a dark immature side was uncovered. Though refreshing it was for myself, I'm sure showing the dark side of an understandingly immature yet omnipotent child did not sit well with the early church. I enjoyed the work and would recommend it to others interested in the subject.
