The Book of Revelation
I love Elaine Pagels's work . . . linkThere’s no other book in the Bible quite like Revelation, but there are plenty of books like Revelation that didn’t make it into the Bible, Pagels says.
Early church leaders suppressed an “astonishing” range of books that claimed to be revelations from apostles such as Peter and James. Many of these books were read and treasured by Christians throughout the Roman Empire, she says.Never send to know for whom the bell tolls . . .

Thank you Pex.
It was always my understanding that a crazy guy wrote about the end of his own world of the times. This just added much detail to my thoughts.
It's pretty well known by now that Christians today aren't being taught the truth about their own religion. There is only so much to learn from the Bible but as the old adage goes, "The devil is in the details".“Religion: Together we can find the cure.”
