Secret Gospel of Mark Unveiled: Imagined Rituals of Sex, Death, and Madness in a Biblical Forgery
Author: Jeffery, Peter
The discussion of the `Secret Gospel' has involved a generation of scholars of the New Testament and early Christianity. Jeffery's book-argued with enormous erudition, careful judgment, sensitivity, and balance-sets the discussion on an entirely new footing.-Harold W. Attridge, Yale Divinity School (Harold W. Attridge )

Peter Jeffery's book proves beyond a reasonable doubt that Morton Smith forged the discovered text. It demonstrates that he had the scholarly expertise, the wit, the sense of humor, and above all the motivation to do so.-Adela Yarbro Collins, Yale Divinity School (Adela Yarbro Collins )

In 1958, Bible scholar Morton Smith announced the discovery of a sensational manuscript-a second-century letter written by St. Clement of Alexandria, who quotes an unknown, longer version of the Gospel of Mark. When Smith published the letter in 1973, he set off a firestorm of controversy that has raged ever since. Is the text authentic, or a hoax? Is Smith's interpretation correct? Did Jesus really practice magic, or homosexuality? And if the letter is a forgery . . . why? Through close examination of the discovered manuscript's text, Peter Jeffery unravels the answers to the mystery and tells the tragic tale of an estranged Episcopalian priest who forged an ancient gospel and fooled many of the best biblical scholars of his time. Jeffery shows convincingly that Smith's Secret Gospel is steeped in anachronisms and that its construction was influenced by Oscar Wilde's Salom?, twentieth-century misunderstandings of early Christian liturgy, and Smith's personal struggles with Christian sexual morality.

Historica: 1000 Years of Our Lives and Times
Author: Strang, G. Bruce
Historica explores the evolution of the world and of people?s lives over the last thousand years, and shows how dramatically the world has changed from era to era.

In the year 1000, most people lived in rural areas; cities were centred around cathedrals or fortresses; transport was by horse; most of the population couldn?t read. The world is a different place today, and Historica demonstrates the ways that changes have happened. Historica takes a close look at the wars, inventions, explorations and the fascinating people who have played a key role in the major events of the world.

Examining the world from 1000 through to 2006, Historica is divided into eras. Within each era, there are four significant streams of information:

  • ? Milestone events: politics, rulers, exploration, wars, disasters, abdication and coronations.
  • ? The Arts: painting, literature, music, dance, architecture, theatre and film.
  • ? Science: inventions, discoveries, chemistry, medicine, geology and astrology.
  • ? Lifestyle: fashion, food, entertainment, social trends, sport, education, fads and eccentricities.
Extensive maps, illustrations and photographs highlight key events: the 100 Years War; the voyages of Christopher Columbus, Captain Cook and other explorers; the campaigns of World War I and World War II; the achievements of the Canadian Fathers of Confederation; and much more.
