The Bible Fraud: An Untold Story of Jesus Christ by Tony Bushby
It would take another book to cover all the errors, misquotes, wildly ignorant speculation, and downright chicanery in this book.

The Last Observer: A magical battle for reality by Anthony Peake
A very enjoyable murder/magickal mystery, crackling with ideas about the nature of perception and reality. Fast-paced with a nice little twist in the plot, this put me in mind of the magical novels of Dion Fortune. Refreshingly free of the cliched superhero types with supermodel girlfriends, The Last Observer is the kind of book whose ideas will stay with you long after you've finished reading it.
