Barrie speaks about The Lost Gospel:
PRAISE FOR THE LOST GOSPEL
"In their new book, 'The Lost Gospel,' Jacobovici and Wilson have uncovered one of the greatest ancient literary and archaeological mysteries. It is sure to revolutionize future scholarship and excavations in the history of ancient Christianity and Judaism."
– Rabbi Dr. Richard Freund, Maurice Greenberg Professor of Jewish History, University of Hartford
“I very much enjoyed reading the book and find the major thesis of Jesus’ marriage to Mary the Magdalene very convincing. I also liked the style – very modern and conversational I thought it well-structured and convincing I have always felt that the emphasis on celibacy and the identification of sex with sin and corruption is extremely annoying. It is very much part of the denigration of women and their place in the natural order of things.”
– Madelyn B. Dick, Ph.D., Professor Emerita and Senior Scholar, History, York University, Toronto
“Simcha Jacobovici and Barrie Wilson have produced a rather impressive collaborative work [that] advances the hypothesis that the text belongs to a form of Gnostic Christianity in which a married Jesus with children was a core tradition that might well trace back to the historical Jesus. The public will find it fascinating, clerics will denounce it, and some academics will likely dismiss it as sensational--but it is well worth a careful read.”
– James D. Tabor, Professor of Ancient Judaism and Early Christianity, University of North Carolina at Charlotte
“The Lost Gospel is a tour-de-force, carefully documented…an important contribution to the on-going dialogue about Christian origins.”
– Margaret Starbird, author of The Woman with the Alabaster Jar
“Absolutely fascinating. Many would argue the biggest story or one of the biggest stories of our lifetime.”
