Format: Paperback
Chopra dedicates his book to the Irish Christian brothers who taught him at school. Those men gave up their homes, gave up food they were used to, gave up their families and friends, gave up the chance to marry and have children, in order to go to another country and spend their lives helping and teaching others. It was a breathtaking act of love and selflessness.

And how has Chopra paid them back? By writing a book that mocks their religion. How can anyone be so cruel?

He writes: "The Catholic church has been adding to scripture since the beginning" (p 223). This is a lie. It was the Catholic church that decided the canon, the pope who approved it, and no Catholic has ever added a single extra word to the bible once the canon was decided upon.

"Jesus...was created by the church to fulfill its agenda" (p 8) he sneers.

Chopra feels free to write hurtful things about a religion he does not believe in, but he gives not one small shred of evidence to back these accusations up.

What proof is there that the earliest Christianity in any way changed or altered Jesus' words? Two of the most famous scholars of the last few decades, Larry Hurtado in "Lord Jesus Christ" and Martin Hengel, in "Paul Between Damascus and Antioch", have investigated the first three decades after Jesus' death and found overwhelming proof that there was no alternations at all.

On the other hand, Chopra is eager to heap praise on the Gnostics. Although there were many philosophical schools under the broad umbrella term of "Gnostics" most were highly anti-female, anti-earth, and pro-death. A memorable quote from the Gnostic Gospel of Thomas: "Women do not deserve to live".

Format: Paperback
This is a book I first listened to on audio and then bought to own. I have reviewed it previously but since this edition has no reviews and I think it is the same book with the same wisdom, I'm resubmitting my review as this is too good a book for the spiritual seeker to pass by:

There is much to glean from reading this book, especially Chopra's commentary on the inerrancy of many questionable Biblical scriptures. From the standpoint of one who reads the Bible both critically and for Spiritual truth, I was not offended; however, for those who make a God of scriptural innerancy, I understand their intense displeasure and the need to refute.

Chopra speaks of the "third Jesus" as mythical (as opposed to the historical and the institutional), and it is here that I believe he has missed the true essence of Jesus, the Christ, the only "begotten" of the Father. In the 22nd chapter of the Gospel according to Matthew Jesus poses the question to the Pharisees: "What do you say of the Christ? Whose Son is He?" When the Pharisees answered "The son of David," Jesus then posed the question that stumped the Pharisees (the most learned priests) and which they could not answer: "How is it then that David, inspired by the Spirit, calls him Lord? If David thus calls him Lord, how is he his son?"

How one answers this question is essential to understanding the Christ and Jesus being "the Christ." Chopra deals with this only cursorily even though his title implies more.

The Christ is the only BEGOTTEN of the Father which indwells everyman awaiting birth - the second birth, the birth of the Spirit (as contrasted with our first physical birth) which Jesus refers to when talking with Nicodemus.
