The scholarly refusal here to say too more than the evidence demands, combined with the solid scholarship underlying it, makes very pleasant reading. There are full references to other ancient texts, probable or otherwise.
Charles W. Hedrick, Paul Allan Mirecki. On March 20, 1967, the Berlin Egyptian Museum acquired a collection of thirty-three parchment fragments written in Coptic. There they were given the simple designation P22220 and stored unceremoniously in paper folders. Almost thirty years later, two American scholars working independently of each other-Charles Hedrick and Paul Mirecki-began to study these forgotten fragments.

Gospel of the Savior opens a new window on early Christianity. The manuscript contains discourses by a figure called "the Savior" in dialogue with his apostles. Some of the sayings are similar to those in other known gospels. But some are different and new-sayings of Jesus that as far as can be known have not been available to readers since antiquity.
Gospel of the Savior includes a complete translation and transcription of the text, along with an extensive introduction, commentary, notes, index, and illustrations. Adding to the interest of the book for both scholars and general readers are complete photographic reproductions of all the ancient parchment fragments.
