Man and Lion
Berkeley, California, 1993by Marc Petersen
In 1993 I began reading The Nag Hammadi Library. The Gnostic Gospels were part of a course that spring in existential theology at UC Berkeley. I’d attended still thinking I was looking for God. Or looking for an approach to God, through a mix of philosophy and Scripture. I’d been on this path, now pretty well-worn, since having finished my studies for the Roman Catholic priesthood thirteen years earlier.
