Nicola Denzey Lewis's "Gnosticism"
Christopher Skinner offers a brief review of Nicola Denzey Lewis's new introductory textbook, Introduction to "Gnosticism": Ancient Voices, Christian Worlds (OUP, 2013) on his blog Peje Iesous. It is quite a glowing review for the book's potential usefulness in a classroom setting. I have been thinking I need to read (and order) the book for my "Forbidden Scriptures" course for a while now. I recently read her monograph, Cosmology and Fate in Gnosticism and Graeco-Roman Antiquity: Under Pitiless Skies (Brill, 2013), which I thought was a very good study of pronoia and heimarmene (and shockingly short).
