Format: Paperback
Massey is always very adamant and almost ruthless in approach. That is NOT why I think this is an excellent book, though. Using his immense skill as an Egyptologist, Massey shows us incredible links to the Jesus story. Like other books I have read on paganism, the linkage is unignorable. One must read this to gain a perspective on the links between ancient religions and Christianity.

Gerald Massey is a scholar's scholar. He has disected not just the important aspects about Jesus the myth, but has gone to every little insignificant things and showed how it relates to some other world myth. This ranges from the 12 followers, to Jesus the bibical myth spreading the fish and bread among 5 thousand people. It is important to realize that the beggining formula for the christ myth, as well as many others began in Egypt. I will use the example from the book, in that Jesus doesn't appear until he is 12 in the tabernacle. In Egypt boys wore the Horus tail until they were 12. Also Jesus didn't appear again until 30 years of age. In Egypt boys became men at about the age 30. These are just a few I will say to give you a feal of what the book is about. To learn more, open your minds beleievers and nonbelievers, and just unmask this book.

Great book on the subject, with an authoritative author on the subject. Much more in depth than Harpur, the only one I like even more is 'Lost Light: An Interpretation of Ancient Scriptures' by Alvin Boyd Kuhn. Massey does an excellent job of showing the correlations between Ancient Egyptian texts and the Bible. An eye opener to say the least, more people need to educate themselves on the subject so the truth shine through the darkness.

I still think it's the greatest story ever told, but it gives one pause to realize that many of the miraculous features of the Jesus story pre-date Jesus in neighboring mythological/philosophical/religious traditions, including the crucifixion, the resurrection on the third day, the virgin mother, the three wise men and much more. On the other hand, there remains much in the gospels that is novel for its time, and compelling still. But any Christian who reads this book with an open mind will at least realize that the Bible and especially the Gospels cannot be taken literally as God's own words. It is clear to me that there was a Jesus, a notorious figure, and his life story was adorned after the fact with a lot of miracles. Again, for me, that does not debunk the core spiritual truths that he probably represented in word and deed. To knock down the divinity of Jesus just because some extra stuff was added to his story does not a debunk make. Just because one is not literally resurrected in the same body at some point in the future does not mean there is not an afterlife, or that this so-called material world is all there is. I still believe, after reading this book, that we know next to nothing about who we are, and should remain happily open to any good future.
