It's very well known that the New Testament was cobbled together by 300-odd bishops in 325 AD. The whole story is far worse than that. The author ruthlessly compares the gospels, exposing the inconsistencies and forgeries, as well as setting out the real sequence in which the whole lot was written. For example, St Paul wrote before any of the Gospels, and strangely said hardly a thing about the life of Jesus. It's a fascinating read, if you can bear the careless writing. There are many errors of spelling and grammar, with missing and repeating words. It looks very much as if the author's unedited draft has been ported over to Kindle without any quality control. This isn't acceptable for a paid publication.

This is a good introduction for anyone interested in what the Bible really says, and there are very many other sources, which this book references.

This book is amusing, and makes many good points, but the author's childish use of ridicule and profanity absolutely detracts from the narrative. I can only think this must be a self-published book, because any decent publisher would improve the book a lot. The author's enthusiasm and ego have detracted from his ability to be considered a serious contender in the canon of knowledge.

Nevertheless, there are things I've learned, and the book is worth a read.

Well researched work looking at the Gospels horizontally, ie. comparing each story from each of the gospels to analyse similarities and differences and conclude who copied from whom and why such differences would have come about.
There are quite a few typographical and grammatical errors though which makes it drop a star.

CJ Werleman does an OK job debunking the myths of the New Testament and exposing the contradictions of the Bible. Some of his points are obvious and have been well debated on numerous occasions; such as how can a loving God commit people to an eternity of writhing agony just because they choose to exercise the free will He gave them in the first place? Other points Werleman makes are perhaps not quite so well trodden. According to the messiah prophecies, the Christ will be born of David's line. And he was, we all know that, courtesy of his fathers ancestor. But at the same time the Bible claims Jesus was the happy child of a virgin birth, so Joseph wasn't his biological father, so Jesus couldn't have been born of David's line. That's food for thought.

On the other hand some of Werleman's claims are weak. Arguing that when a young Jesus shook off his parents and was later found in the temple, the Biblical text refers to Joseph as father of the child, thereby contradicting itself according to the virgin birth. Well no, not really, if you accept the man brought the child up as his own, he is the father. Isn't he? It's not the same as claiming a bloodline that either is there or isn't there.

As other reviewers have said there are many spelling, formatting and grammatical errors liberally scattered throughout. I also found Werleman's purile style of humour quite annoying. He often comes across like a bullying little school boy making snide comments and with the addition of groan-worthy jokes you can read on a thousand birthday cards, he almost had me taking the side of his targets.

All in all, if it had been edited with greater control this would have been an excellent thought provoking read. As it is, it fell a bit short.

Following on from his earlier book in which he gave a very thorough and undignified roughing-up to God-The-Father, Werleman now slams Jesus-The-Son up against the wailing wall and delivers some pretty brutal knees to the Anointed One's groin.

The author is the first to admit that there's nothing new in his merciless attack on the pivotal character of Christianity - it's all been done before, of course.

However, unlike the more delicate and scholarly writers of older and more fearful times, C. J. exhibits no deference to a subject that has sought to wrap itself in everything from 'being sacrosanct' to inventing the 'crime' of blasphemy.

I love Werleman's style. He has no time for guff and hokum - especially when such devices are used by the cynical to control the ignorant.

If you are religious you will not want this book, much less read it.

If - on the other hand - you are growing weary of global and local conflicts and tensions that are predicated on who believes in the correct invisible being, you might just find that this book will give you that last push out of the darkness of age-old superstition into the clear and fresh light of logic, reason, common sense and - above all - humanity.

Having thus dispensed with two-thirds of the Holy Trinity, I can't wait for C. J. Werleman's next book in which he might be obliged to tackle that dastardly insubstantial one - The Holy Ghost.

This book is absoultely and without doubt as fantastic as the first book. If not better. Sadly it should be read really by Christians than the usual following (Atheists). Waiting for JC? ok, in the meantime during that labourous wait, Read CJ. If nothing else, if NOTHING else, its a great read. And as a bundle with the first book a great bargain. Obviously a few people who reviewed this and scored it low seem to have just read the pages available online already and based that low rating on bias. Silly. Read it first. BUY BUY BUY.
