I was excited to have Dr. Robert M. Price back on as a guest to discuss Gnostic themes in last year’s hit television series Twin Peaks: The Return. Fans of the show may find this discussion helpful to understanding the show’s more obscure plot points while students of ancient and church history will find the show’s application of Gnostic ideas to be fascinating and perhaps clarifying.
Dr. Robert Price has received doctorates in both systematic theology and New Testament from Drew University and a former fellow of the Jesus Seminar. He is also a scholar at the forefront of the Christ myth movement which denies the existence of a historical Jesus, having written books on the subject such as The Incredible Shrinking Son of Man. You can find a number of his books related to biblical studies on Amazon and even hear him as the host of The Bible Geek podcast. He’s also written extensively in the field of H.P. Lovecraft studies and co-wrote a book about the rock band Rush with his wife Carol entitled Mystic Rhythms: The Philosophical Vision of Rush. He can be found at http://robertmprice.mindvendor.com/
