Since I got the book I have already read it twice. Though I am sure some information is not up to date but to me it was a treasure chest ! I would recommend it together with Grant Allen's " The evolution of the idea of God ".

This is a good book. All Christians should read this book to understand origin of their religion. This book clearly explain how much pagan religions have influenced Christianity. After reading this book only I understood, today's christianity celebrations like christmas, easter and other all are not original christianity. what they are doing all are from Pagana religions. Original teachings of Jesus (peace be upon him) are not followed by Christians. This Author has well analysed all the issues like History of Cross, Bible, Status, Christmas and Easter etc. very bad quality binding. It is between Hard and Soft back cover. Paper size is bigger than actual book size. Small fonts. Some are not readable.

Format: Paperback
This is an outstanding, scholarly, yet readable work that despite its age still deserves the attention of all thinking people. It presents a painstaking chronological review of the Bible and illustrates the striking parallels of the stories therein with the little known older myths of the Ancient World. It points out that the greatest myth of the Judeo-Christian world is that of the uniqueness of its source. Upon this myth rests the notion of divine revelation. Systematically this work demonstrates that the Bible is, in fact the product of a conglomeration of writings made over many centuries and inspired, not by revelation, but by a deliberate incorporation of ancient established myth and historical invention, first by a rootless people anxious to invent a noble history for themselves and then by a scion of that people so anxious to find a Saviour for mankind that they were prepared to invent one. The academic roots of this work descend to the 1820's and the critical analyses of the great German Biblical scholars, which find here their fruition. The Victorian answer to these criticisms was to escape to the Jesus of faith and thereby largely ignore them. The credulous generally prefer to ignore the objections of reason. Yet as Jesus (as both this book and modern impartial scholarship indicate) was in truth a minor Jewish prophet, who doubtless would have considered pagan ideas of Man as God a blasphemy, and who was deified after his death by those seeking the promised Messiah and who freely borrowed Persian and Greek myth to prove it so, would it not be an injustice to the man to believe in him as myth? All freethinking persons should read this honest and liberating book.

It is deplorable that this work is still considered scholarly. It really doesn't hold true any longer when compared to modern scholarship like Bart Ehrman's or Maurice Casey's which argue, as atheists, for the historicity of Jesus. The Jesus-Buddha hypothesis is really laughable as the author fails to show how that can even be possible.
Even the chapters on the OT fail to realize the importance of the exile in informing and forming the OT books.
I really hope mythicists would be honest and admit that this book is no longer worth reading.

A very knowledgable compilation of views from scholars of the genre. This work is not contemporary and does not use hard hitting and current scientific revelation to question the subject of biblical references. A must to read but at a gentle pace reveals a huge wealth of academic and philosophical input which has been well worth savouring.
