Gospel of Thomas Explored in 'Beyond Belief'

Theologian Elaine Pagels has written Beyond Belief, The Secret Gospel of Thomas. The text of the gospel, discovered in 1945 in Egypt, paints a different vision of Jesus than do the Gospels that made it into the official biblical canon. Pagels speaks with NPR's John Ydstie.
