Having already read two of D M Murdock (aka Acharya S) other books: Who Was Jesus? Fingerprints of Christ and The Christ Conspiracy: The Greatest Story Ever Sold, I could hardly wait to get my hands on this tremendous book: Christ in Egypt: The Horus Jesus Connection.
This well researched book is accessible both to the general reader and to the scholar interested in the origins of the Christian belief system.
Christ in Egypt: The Horus Jesus Connection quotes hundreds of primary sources taken from the works of first rate authorities clearly demonstrating that the Egyptian god Horus and Jesus have many characteristics in common.
Drawing from thousands of ancient Egyptian texts in translation alongside the originals, as well as modern research, D M Murdock puts together an astonishing amount of information indicating that many cherished religious beliefs are not unique, but spring from mythologies around the globe that go back many thousands of years prior to the common era.
The author has probably collected every scholarly reference to the Egyptian correlations to Christianity.
In doing this, she researched materials that had never been published before and many that until now had never appeared in English.
This book, which surely will become a classic, is the most enlightening and well researched I have ever read on the origins of Christianity.

I know books with titles such as this can easily be passed over as being part of the weird world of various people who tend to appear on the TV in scurilous documentaries. I hope to have a level head about ancient Egypt, and do not go with the nonsense churned out by people who have $ in their eyes. This book is well researched and has an undeniable ring of truth about it. We have been subjected to a particular point of view for 2 millenia, it is ingrained in our culture that what the Bible says is the only truth. This, to me, always seemed false and deeply suspect. So, cast off the shackles of millenia and read this book, open your mind to at least the possibility that much of what we call Christianity, is actually the worship of Ra, Ra-Horakhty, Horus, Isis, Aten etc etc

Format: Paperback
From the mid-eighteenth century to the present day scholars have noted and written about the many parallels between the Christian gospels and eastern Mediterranean mythologies, particularly those of Ancient Egypt. Dupuis, Volney, Hislop, Taylor and Massey can be cited and, in more recent times others together with Biblical archaeologists have contributed their findings. Three basic theses are apparent. Either the gospel stories are true verbatim, or they contain elements from other religions, or they can be classed as myths. Central to each early Mediterranean religion - termed pagan - is the figure of a Saviour. Whilst pagan Saviours are accepted as myths, the one of Christianity is taken as being factual. However, continuing research into Christian origins and particularly Egyptian mythology has cast considerable doubt on the factual reliability of the Christian gospel accounts. It appears that during the time the gospels were written - of which only copies of copies exist - many factions imposed their own ideas whilst producing those copies. There is also support for opinions that assert that Christianity developed principally from Egyptian myths and Judaism and contains little that is original except in interpretation. D.M. Murdock's book takes the latter viewpoint. In doing so, the author has compiled a large summary of parallels, using and quoting from earliest possible source material, as well as commentaries by ancient historians, modern Egyptologists and authors of religious studies. Many of Murdock's conclusions are impressive and appear irrefutable, though some would consider that the Christian religion was placed on an historic person, albeit much distorted, and others that the Christian texts are completely accurate.
The book contains extensive references throughout the text, and there is a full bibliography, and index. I recommend it as a thought provoking scholarly work for students of religious studies and others interested in Christian origins.

This is an important book.It should be recommended reading for those interested in the history of Christianity, the Abrahamic religions,and comparative religion.The book is based on extensive research and the resulting references to be found within the complete sphere of the Egyptian Ra-Horus-Osiris-Isis religion that describe the parallels with Christianity.The facts are presented in a common sense approach describing the adoption of ideas used in the construction of a (new) religion. These ideas illustrate, from astrotheology, and the Horus - Osiris sun gods myths the similarities to Christianity, originating thousands of years earlier. Scientifically, the conclusions appear obvious.
In the latter part of the book we are presented with the development of Christianity from the subsequent Egyptian-Greek-Hebrew religion complex, from Philo and the library at Alexandria, and from the Therapeuts and others.
D.M.Murdock must be congratulated on her very convincing reference book.

I seriously recommend this well researched book relating to the religion of ancient Egypt to any serious reader who wishes to find the origins and historicity of Christianity. It is not a novel but an in-depth research documentation of the religious beliefs and customs of ancient Egypt and its probable effect on the evolution of Christianity. It can be tedious reading but worth the effort for the information it divulges. In order to understand any religion or culture, it is essential to trace its origins and to visualise the ambience in those formative year, even to pre-recorded times. This book reveals the in-depth researches of eminent Egyptologists from many nations and from different language groups, transcribed here for us to read and assess. It takes a close comprehensive look at the early Egyptian religion. It examines various sources of Egyptian literature including papyrus documents, Book of the Dead(BD), Pyramid Text (PT), Coffin Text (CT), and studies from all the famous Egyptologists' of the day. Murdock has done a fantastic work of research and has been able to expose and confirm to me the in-depth details of the ancient Egyptian religions and its significance in the evolution of Judaism and Christianity. Thus, finally, I have been able to complete my tapestry of the evolution of historic/mythical Christianity that has been supressed for so long under the cloud of censorship and prejudice under the firm control of the Judaic and Christian clergy. It was essential for Jews and Christians to portray Judaism and Christianity as having divinely been revealed to mankind through the prophets Moses and Jesus and that it had no connections to the pagan worship of the Egyptians.Read more ›
