Readings from the Apocryphal Gospels

Selected and with an Introduction by Hugh J. Schonfield

This is a reissue of the book originally written by Hugh J. Schonfield in 1939 and published by Nelson in 1940. The front flap of the dust cover describes the work thus:”A collection of the many interesting stories about our Lord to be found in the accounts of His life not regarded as “canonical.” The importance of these documents lies in the fact that they embody a useful remnant of independent tradition about the life and teaching of Christ; also they throw light on the spiritual outlook of the early Christian Age in which they were compiled.

The Gospels of James, of Pseudo-Matthew, of Thomas, and of Nicodemus are those from which extracts have been taken, and the translation used is that of the late Alexander Walker.”
