Product Details

Praise

“Arresting . . . brilliant . . . this book illuminates the angels with which we must wrestle to come to the truth of our bedeviling spritual problems.”  —Boston Globe

“Pagels is a wonderful writer. . . . She has a gift for bringing ancient texts alive. . . . Fascinating.”  —San Francisco Chronicle

“Lively reading . . . a book that makes familiar concepts disturbingly fresh and provocative.” —The New York Times

“Pagels has achieved something important. . . . Thoughtful scholarly works that are also original and adventurous are not common. The Origin of Satan is such a work, and we should be correspondingly grateful.”  —New York Review of Books

“Lucid and closely reasoned. . . . Pagels remains always a lively writer who discerns the human implications of esoteric texts and scholarly disputes.” —Chicago Tribune
