The Gnostic Gospel Investigations...

Sherlock Holmes in the Fullness of Time by Thomas Kent Miller

Thomas Kent Miller is a long distance friend of mine, as I live in Virginia and he lives in California. We have exchanged e-mails off and on for years, and I talked to him once by phone. He has shared his writings with me, and to quote him, I have his “complete works!”

This volume contains Tom’s three interconnected books in which Sherlock Holmes becomes aware and interested in the Gnostic gospels.

The first is The Great Detective at the Crucible of Life. Holmes is traveling incognito in Africa where he meets Allan Quatermain.  They venture into the wilds of Ethiopia . Holmes has an old scroll, a copy of a copy from the legendary lost library of Alexandria.

They discuss the “Synoptic Problem” a religious notion that the four gospels might be taken from a lost volume, known as the “Gnostic Gospel.” The major point is that Christ may have survived the Crucifixion and had descendants in the Far East.

The trip is recounted in a series of letters, journals, and hastily scribbled footnotes that are rife with danger, wonders beyond belief, and more questions than answers. There is also the meeting with the immortal She, the Mother Goddess who may have strong ties to the mysteries behind Holmes’ scroll…

The next volume is The Great Detective on the Roof of the World. This takes place in Tibet during Holmes’ “Great Hiatus.” It concerns the discovery of the writings of one Issa in a Buddhist monastery. They appear to be the writings of Jesus of Nazareth… And a man has been murdered… Have the writings of the Gnostic Gospels of Gasphar (one of the wise men) and Mirium (possibly Mary Magdalene) reflected the truth of Jesus Christ? Did his descendants really settle into the Roof of the World?

The final book of the Trilogy is Allan Quatermain at the Dawn of Time. The wrap up to this mystery is Tom’s final words on the validity of the Gnostic Doctrine. This is the final push to gain evidence that could shake the religious world to the core!

 

You may agree with Tom, disagree, think whatever you will. But allow yourself the luxury of for one just asking “What If…” If I have understood Tom’s books that is what he is looking for. Not converts but those who will entertain for a moment that they could be wrong…

I give Tom four stars. The book isn’t the easiest read you will ever have. For some, it will seem heresy. But it is the journey of one man’s quest to understand the incomprehensible. For that reason, my hat is off to you Tom!
