The Thomas Book is a real-life Da Vinci Code. MacDonald explores his experiences of living in a number of countries and examines the literatures and traditions of the world in his quest for answers to the questions he brought back from the dead. He was finally forced to enter deep into the mysteries of human spiritual consciousness and reincarnation in order to bring the text of the Gospel to life, seen through the eyes of Didymos Judas Thomas, twin brother of Jesus.
What happens if the disciples themselves reincarnate, as seems to be happening recently? What does all of this say about the importance of the present time in history, of the long held belief in the “Second Coming of Christ”?
What if Jesus actually did have a twin brother, Didymos Judas Thomas, as many early Christians taught and as is recorded in some of the early Christian texts as well as in the canonical Gospels, and is explored in Part One, Chapters Two and Three of The Thomas Book?
Part One of The Thomas Book describes the Near Death Experience and MacDonald’s meeting with Jesus, Elijah and Moses. It presents the exciting and intriguing story of the complex quest for the new Gospel along with the frustration of trying to find an identity and a text which had been hidden by the forces of history and twenty-first century fraud.
Part Two presents the most valuable result of his search -- a Gospel which Bruce MacDonald discovered hidden in the mysterious byways of consciousness. The Thomas Book is what the Tibetan Buddhists call a “terma,” a text hidden in consciousness at a time when it was in danger of being lost, to be retrieved later, at a time when its publication would be welcomed and when it would benefit many people on their spiritual journey.
