Media Reviews

Malachi perfectly captures the oral tradition within the written word. --Publishers Weekly

Malachi suggests the need for a 'new gospel, a gospel of the Cosmic Christ'--a Christ inherent in every person, not the crucified-risen Christ revered by the church--and proceeds to give three-to-five page 'meditations' on each of the 114 sayings in Thomas, weaving in teachings from the Kabbalah and other mystical traditions. --The Washington Post

An intriguing book, worth your time and interest. For those interested in Gnostic Christianity, this is a fine reference book. Well-written., Universal Gnostic Church

The Gnostic Gospel of St. Thomas offers a fresh perspective into the secrets of Christ's resurrection, the true role of St. Mary Magdalene in the early church, and more, as it examines each verse in the scripture as a means for daily spiritual contemplation. A complex yet devotional analysis. --The Bookwatch

Author Bio

Tau Malachi's (Malachi eben Ha-Elijah's) spiritual journey began when he met the acquaintance of a Tau of the Sophian Tradition of Gnostic Christianity, Tau Elijah ben Miriam. He received the oral tradition of Sophian Gnosticism from Tau Elijah, and has been a student and practitioner of Gnostic Christianity for over thirty-five years. In 1983 he founded Sophia Fellowship as an expression of the tradition, and has been teaching and initiating others into Christian Gnosticism, Rosicrucian Philosophy and Christian Kabbalah since that time. He is an initiate of Ordo Sanctus Gnosis and serves as an Elder and Tau within the Sophian lineage.

Tau Malachi is also a Chevalier (a dubbed Knight) in the International Order of Chivalric Companions, a Martinist, and is an ordained and consecrated Independent Bishop. He is co-founder of The Gnostic Apostolic Church of Sophia and is among the leading exponents of Christian Gnosticism and Kabbalah in our times.

Along with his exploration of the Western Mystery Tradition, he has studied extensively in several Eastern Traditions, such as Vajrayana Buddhism and Vedanta, and he also studied within a Middle Eastern Tradition of Sufism, as well as becoming involved in Native American Shamanism. Though Gnostic Christianity has always been his heart's path.
