Item description for Kiss of Death: The True History of the Gospel of Judas by Tobias Churton...
The publication of The Gospel of Judas in 2006 was a media sensation which generated terrific interest. Now, for the first time, the story of its hidden history and publication is told in full. Beginning with the discovery of the Gospel in Egypt 30 years ago, and examining its subsequent movements from one antiquities dealer to another we discover how this precious document eventually finds a home in a New York City safety deposit box, before finally being published to a huge public fanfare. Reading like a well-paced thriller, this fascinating work of scholarship looks at the ways in which Judas has been maligned and misrepresented across the centuries, and in doing so also helps shed new light on the origins of Christianity.
