Once a month, at 8–9 p.m. Eastern Time on Monday nights (generally the fourth of the month), the Tanho Center sponsors a presentation and discussion of one of the early Christ movement texts. Each Monday session is led by a trained scholar of these texts. Discussion leaders will share a well-framed overview of the particular text, and give time for all participants to ask questions or share their own insights about the meanings and potential for these texts.

From anonymous evaluation forms:
Such amazing, eye-opening, helpful information. The fruits of your study research digging are so helpful…
Getting exposed/acquainted to the ancient extracanonical texts for the first time – now I need to go home and study them.
Interested in non-canonical healings; how early Christian churches organized; explanations about the Council of Nicea and its impact on history; closer historical context; great perspective: explanations through good metaphors.
There was so much here that I could take this again and continue to learn more — have more texts been found? Grateful for all. I think you were very thorough. I appreciate your bibliography and back-up for many of the ideas given.
I enjoyed all of it and got a lot out of it.
