This well researched book is accessible both to the general reader and to the scholar interested in the origins of the Christian belief system.
Christ in Egypt: The Horus Jesus Connection quotes hundreds of primary sources taken from the works of first rate authorities clearly demonstrating that the Egyptian god Horus and Jesus have many characteristics in common.
Drawing from thousands of ancient Egyptian texts in translation alongside the originals, as well as modern research, D M Murdock puts together an astonishing amount of information indicating that many cherished religious beliefs are not unique, but spring from mythologies around the globe that go back many thousands of years prior to the common era.
The author has probably collected every scholarly reference to the Egyptian correlations to Christianity.
In doing this, she researched materials that had never been published before and many that until now had never appeared in English.
This book, which surely will become a classic, is the most enlightening and well researched I have ever read on the origins of Christianity.
The book contains extensive references throughout the text, and there is a full bibliography, and index. I recommend it as a thought provoking scholarly work for students of religious studies and others interested in Christian origins.
