The Way of Wisdom Series takes an in-depth look at the gospels, using the recently discovered translation technique of Semitic Parallelism. Through this technique, the Gospel of Thomas shines as an example of the true teachings of Jesus Christ. Volume One serves as an introduction to this technique, taking a close look at the Gospel of Thomas' "Wisdom Poems" as well as by contrasting Jesus' true message with the message contained in the writings of Paul. Volume One presents 52 of Jesus's wisdom poems showing:
- Jesus' real, unknown core message-his gospel,
- Jesus' unknown personal development (mental health) step by step method,
- Jesus' solution for inter-group, inter-nation conflicts,
- Jesus' Way of Wisdom (a non-religion religion for everyone, including atheists),
- How these revelations may be part of his Second Coming

These doctrines control their actions and thoughts; thus, we find that those affected by Jesus' teachings are torn between independence and dependence, freedom and subservience, and enlightenment and mind control. Out of love for Jesus, many veer from loving and helping everyone, to hating, marginalizing and persecuting those who differ from them in doctrine.
