Six years ago I went on a Nile cruise visiting the ancient Egyptian temples from Thebes to Abu Simbel. We learned about the local deities and also the more important Gods such as Isis and her son Horus. The bible informs us that "There is nothing new under the sun" Which is true. Moses led the Hebru out of Egypt who were not Jewish until Moses got the 10 Commandments. Jacob married an Egyptian priests daughter and learned how to read the cup. There was a tremendous amount of discourse between the different tribes in the area and it is no surprise that some plagarism took place.

The early Christian church borrowed the Isis/Horus story for their own story of Mary/Jesus and supressed all other conflicting beliefs. Tom Harpur the author of "The Pagan Christ" being an ordained priest has explained how the Christian faith has developed. You need to read the book with an open mind and I promise you that you will not be disappointed.

I've been studying Christianity for eight years now. I originally picked up the Bible with the intention of exposing its potholes, but what I found in the Bible had nothing to do with what I had been led to believe might be in there: what I found was pretty much a manifesto against organised religion. And so much more. It gradually became apparant to me that this book treated of eternal truths, but I couldn't put my finger on how it did this. What it did do, was get me communicating with God. Another thing that very quickly became apparent, was that there was no relation between the ideals related by Jesus and the manifestations of 'Christianity' through its fractured, finger-pointing 'church'. I've been struggling with the puzzle for years now, and the search has been fascinating, introducing me to quantum physics, a circle of well-loved authors and mystical writings from a range of religions. I've even ended up as a teacher of Religious Studies in secondary school.

I've researched Gnosticism; I've researched the takeover of Christianity by the Roman Empire in 312 AD; I've researched the atrocities committed by a group of thugs posing under the banner of 'Christianity' from the dark ages all the way into our 21st century; I've researched the experiences of mystics, and the physiological phenomena that cause them; I've researched the history, symbology and heritage behind Christian art and music; I've researched the so called 'philosophers' and 'theologians' that have plagued Christianity from the depths of their utter stupidity and blindness; I've researched the genius of those Christians who dared to delve deeper. Let me just save us all some time here by just saying that if it touches on Christianity or even religion in a wider sense, I've pretty much researched it.

Well, this little book brings it all, finally, together, in a mere 218 pages. Mr Harpur, I take my hat off to you.

This is an excellent book, although not an easy read as such. It took me a long time to read it as I felt the need to refer to the bible to read the extracts he refers to directly. I think that Tom Harper has explained why some of us have been uneasy about the literal interpretation the church has imposed upon its followers for hundreds of years, some of which are impossible. If you are a Christian, this book is not about taking your faith away but giving you a deeper, broader and meaningful spiritual experience of the timeless message of the Divine (however you perceive this to be).
