This is the first book-length treatment in English of the Nag Hammadi text, The Thunder: Perfect Mind - a poem of "I am" statements that has garnered a strong following in mainstream culture. This book offers a fresh, current translation (with ...
detailed Coptic annotations) and ten chapters of introductory analysis of the text. Approaching the text from socio-historical, literary, and postmodern gender-theoretical frameworks, the editors situate Thunder as an early Christian text - away from the now suspect category of "Gnosticism" - and offer conclusions on its possible ancient meanings, as well as its interpretive possibilities for the present moment.
