So, it’s August 21. This is the official publication date for God’s Library (I’m not entirely sure what that means, because the book has been shipping from the publisher for a couple weeks now already). Thanks again to everyone involved in the production of the book. Amazon has quite a few preview pages available, and the preview at Google Books features what I believe is the Kindle version of the book (I’m happy to see that the graphics look good in that format as well). Amazon seems to be low on hard copies, but the book can also be bought through the Yale Press website, which has links to other sellers, too. The great cover image comes courtesy of the Coptic Museum in Cairo and the very useful collection of photos at the Nag Hammadi Archive, a part of the Claremont Colleges Digital Library. Thanks to Stephen Emmel for pointing out that the photo was probably taken in 1956 when Pahor Labib was preparing to make plates for his facsimile volume.
Word on the street says I should buy your book
Well, I’m biased, but I would agree!
My copy arrived on August 21st as promised. The Freer story drew me in right away. So many useful and informative illustrations. Congratulations on this achievement!
Thanks! Glad you’re enjoying it.
My copy just arrived, Brent. Looking forward to it!
A copy of “God’s Library,” just arrived. Actually Dr. Luijendijk recommended it. Just through the prologue, and can hardly wait to sift through it.
