Format: Paperback
Instead of starting with an open inquiry such as "Who Was Jesus?", to conclude only down the line with the non-existence of Jesus, this book starts with a bang, a "no-buts-permitted" title brutally asserting that "Jesus Never Existed".
This title is a good eye-catcher, but it is terribly misleading.

The book in fact mixes two interlocking subjects:
1) the critique of the traditional story of Jesus Christ;
2) and the dark side of the history of Christianity.

With two overlapping ambitions:
- first, as a popularizing mini-encyclopedia -- introducing neophyte readers to the complexity of Christian history and offering a comprehensive coverage of all its tangle of arcane issues;
- and, second, as a ferocious debunking polemic against traditional interpretations and unquestioned beliefs, revealing the systematic fabrications of all the dogmas.

The author claims to have initially focused on one single objective, stemming from his original obsession to understand the causes of the medieval Dark Ages and the tragic destruction of the classical civilization of the Ancient Greco-Roman world.
Since 2000, he's been diligently compiling all the various strands of critical scholarship on the origins of Christianity. He explains that it is the gradual realization of a serious lack of historical evidence about the figure of Jesus that led him to the development of his online site, "Jesus Never Existed", a critical examination of the Jesus Christ Myth and the extraordinary history of the Christian Church.
The author presents himself as an independent researcher and in the line of previous dedicated crusaders of the Christ Myth thesis.

Format: Paperback
explains in detail the lies and forgery that goes in in christianity, and how humans are so gullable theyll believe in anything. it parallels to this day where people believe everything the tv or president tells them.
this book should be required reading before someone believes in another religion.
and watch how the peopel attack this book because it shatters their foundation of their great truth or myth.
the author does a wonderful job with plenty of humor to break down the walls of fact and fiction.
in a away every human can understand.
and the price is a great bargain considering the amount of information that is detailed in this well researched book.
i highly recommend this to all whos eek the truth about jesus.

Format: Paperback
When someone with a PHD in Theology, itself an idea pretty close to an Oxymoron,you can't help but suspect his critique of this book is more to do with either keeping hi job or his faith and not an intellectual appreciation or disproof of the authors contentions.Like Edward Gibbon and others who have studied Ancient Rome and particularly the Hebraic Insurrections the arguments put forward deserves better than a dismissal by wanting to find a star rating lower than that offered. No doubt many believe God gave Israel to the Hebrews rather than they inventing the idea to justify their taking it from the original inhabitants. But it doesn't make it so. It's definitely worth a read, as all sceptical tomes are, if produced with honest and impartial scolarly intent.
