Peter Fitch retells some of Elaine Pagels story and shows why she values Christianity and, at the same time, finds things within it with which she cannot agree. He wonders if there is a way to bring together a traditional understanding of the Gospel of John with the things that she finds beautiful in the Gospel of Thomas. Is Jesus to be seen as God or as a Jewish teacher who has come to help each of us learn how to develop the image of God in which we all share? Is he, perhaps, both? Either way, Peter thinks there is a value to divergent knowledge and looks for a richer way of understanding than he has had to this point.
