I have got to know David Fitzgerald a little as a friend and agreed to review his work. I had been looking for a one-stop review of the evidence concerning the very existence of Jesus Christ and have to say that this volume more than exceeded my expectations. Meticulously researched and developed over a ten year period, this book is the result of a huge amount of painstaking analysis. There is no argument not considered and no stone left unturned in an effort to discover any evidence that actually conclusively verifies the existence of such a character. There is none - none at all. Everything ever written about Christ (specifically including all of the New Testament) serves and combines to create a 'construct' for the early church members to believe in. David's conclusions at every stage of the ten aspects covered leave no doubt in the objective reader's mind that Jesus Christ is as mythological an individual character as any of the now proven myths of the Old Testament. Well written and well rounded, fully referenced and brilliantly explained - this is a 'must read' for anyone who wants to put the lid on the idea that Christ was real and later Christianity his personal baby. The one thing that this volume contains that the Bible and all other pretended 'proofs' of Christ and Christianity do not, is evidence - and it is as conclusive as it can get. The only reason any reader will not agree is if they have 'faith in fiction' from a preconceived belief in God which must not be offended, rather than a willingness to face and accept evidence of the truth without reservation. As I comment in my own books, "As long as people want something to be true, more than they are willing to face the possibility that it is not, they will not entertain evidence or reason. Delusion becomes a choice." Jim Whitefield. Author of 'The Mormon Delusion' series.
