Like many historically accurate and detailed analyses of how Christianity became such a dominant force in Western culture, it requires some dedication and concentration in reading it from front to back. However, it is a very fulfilling experience. Here we will find the explanation of the origin of the whole notion of a day of judgement, life after death, the trinity, the apparent miracles of jesus and how they have evolved and have been derived from pagan beliefs, Egyptian magic and conjourning.

A very insightful, informative and well documented reference book. It should be mandatory reading for every fundamentalist Christian (so they can see the error of their ways)...and an essential reference for secular humanists (to show that there is an accurate historical story over and above the mythology of the Bible)!

This is a very, very, very easy read that religious individuals will not find offensive. It is a very educational and detail book that takes you step-by-step thru early Egyptian religious mythical believes.

You will find that everything that has been said about the Origin of the "Christian Myth" -thru PAGAN MYTH-is correct.

Christianity took "ALL" Pagan ideas---Specialy from Egypt.

Read the followikng quotes (from other books) from Early Church Fathers:

MARCUS MINUCIUS FELIX (died c. 250, Rome) (Church Father)
****Book (Octavius)
Crosses, moreover, we (Christians) neither worship nor wish for. You (Pagans), indeed, who consecrate Gods of wood, adore wooden crosses perhaps as part of your Gods.
****Book (Octavius)
Your victorious trophies not only imitate the appearance of a simple cross, but also that of a man affixed to it.

-----------------------------
QUINTUS SEPTIMIUS FLORENS "TERTULLIAN" (c. 160 - c. 225 AD) (Church Father)
****Book (Ad Nationes)
The "HEATHENS" themselves made much of Crosses in sacred things; Nay, their very idols were formed on a Crucial (Cross like) Frame.
****Book (The Apology)
Caricatures of the Crucifixion are extant which show how greedily the HEATHEN had acceptec this PROFANE ideas.

FYI:
If you really want to know why people turn to religion, read "THE DENIAL OF DEATH" BY Ernest Becker. Only then will you understand why pious are not willing to let go of their "CHRISTIAN, etc., MYTH".

ZERO Stars!! This guy is a "professor" who never read a history book. LOL!
Seriously? In reading just a little of this rubbish, it's clear that this guy is a bible-beater WHO NEVER READ THE BIBLE!
For example: 1) NOWHERE in the bible does "Christ" claim to be the Son of God...not even close.
2) There were MANY religions 2000 years ago (and beyond) that worshipped multiple Gods; the figure "Christ" was not the first or only one and there was no reason to believe "he" was persecuted for claiming he was a God (WHICH IS NOT IN THE BIBLE, ANYWAY!).

Even the Catholic Encyclopedia says that there are problems in using the New Testament to establish an "historical Christ", since the Gospel stories are extremely sketchy.
Yet this "author" (and I use that term loosely) refers to everything in the Gospels AS GOSPEL (no pun intended. LOL!) AND obviously takes the modern English version as literally true...clearly not understanding that 1) the Bible wasn't written in English and was translated and retranslated by the new "religion"; 2) Ancients didn't think like us, write like us, or speak like us, not to mention the mountains of idioms they had that bear no resemblance to our own way of speaking.

Forget this tripe.

3 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Arthur Frederick Ide on December 27, 2011
Format: Paperback
Contrary to other reviewers, the word "adam[ah]" does not mean "first man" any more than it means "man". The word means "dust" or "read earth". The Genesis figure "Adam" no more praised Jesus than did Noah, Abraham, or any of the prophets or priests, for they were anticipating a warrior king (messiah), which this volume does uncover.

There is nothing original in the Old or New Testament. The Bible was not even copied down (in 50 copies for the churches in the East) until Eusebius, an Arian bishop, was instructed to create the fiction by Constantine. This book dispells these myths, for research since the days of Sayce and his Hibbert Lectures at Oxford at the end of the nineteenth century, has shown that the Egyptians were far more advanced than any later-day Israel, and it is from Egypt that the Mother of God (Isis) was first termed, and with her husband/brother Osiris and son Horis, became the original trinity--a concept not found in any other scripture (it was an invention by fourth-fifth century trinitarians). What makes this work essential is its exposure of myths that have held the human intellect of Christians too long in the dark and led to the invention of the LDS sect that has Jesus emigrating to the New World, whereas the Council of Nicaea has the Jesus of the New Testament dying, rising and ascending into the clouds (concepts plagiarized from earlier theologies throughout the Middle East).

The word "christ" is Egyptian, as a leader of magi (magicians and astrologers). Jesus does not claim in the New Testament to be a christ--nor a messiah (a Hebrew word for warrior or "one who sets others free"), a word that is originally Egyptian and in reference to Horus who was to free the people of Israel (IS[is]-Ra-El, the Egyptian trinity).
