  1. Sammy Sutton

    This is a fabulous piece of comprehensive work by academic Teresa Hornsby, her in sight and research is admirable I have referred back to her book several times Each time I refer back to her texts I feel further enlightened by the true meaning of these often confusing coptic Biblical references I should say, Ms Hornsby personality adds a lot of character and often had me chuckling, a rare incident in this type of book.
