Jacques Lacarriere The Gnostics

This series of linked essays provides an accessible and imaginative description of Gnosticism in antiquity and its relevance to modernity. Scholars might take issue with some of the implicit generalizations, but the book nevertheless provides ample fodder for religious introspection, and it is written with persuasive elegance. [via]
