Product description

From the Back Cover

Was there a Christ who was born of a virgin; worked miracles among the masses; and was tried, crucified, and later resurrected to ascend to heaven? In this nineteenth-century classic of freethought literature, John E. Remsburg reveals that while there may be some historical evidence for the existence of a man named Jesus, the supernatural "Christ" of Christian dogma could not have existed. Using the tools of textual criticism and applying rigorous logical analysis, Remsburg carefully examines the New Testament Scriptures, the writings of well-known pagan authors from the time of Jesus, and the works of later Christian apologists. His conclusion is that the divine, miracle-working Christ of traditional Christianity is a myth, which was developed over many centuries by a community of believers and was heavily influenced by mythic elements of Greek, Roman, and eastern religions. Remsburg concludes this interesting and thorough study with a detailed discussion of the various ancient sources from which the Christ myth evolved. The Christ is both an excellent introduction to biblical criticism and a valuable contribution to freethought.

About the Author

I read this book several years ago and was so impressed with it that I had it copied and bound. Although some of the material is dated,it is still an invaluable polemic against fundamentalism and "evangelical" approaches to the New Testament. Buy it and read it!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best reference source I have found , short of learning to read German. 26 Mar. 2015
By Aerialhanger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book was printed in the 1920s if my sources are correct.
It is an excellent source which backs up many writers on the subject.
I will re-read it often I am sure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful Book 2 Jun. 2014
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The Christ, though written many years ago, is still timely in its showing that while Jesus lived, Christ is a myth. Particularly useful are all the references to other religions and beliefs in the ancient world showing that very little in Christianity was new.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I gave this book a 5 star rating because it's an excellent book. I need not add to what other reviewers have so eloquently expressed about this book, except to say, investigating what is truth and who is telling it, is important. Even if it takes a lifetime.
5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the time. 5 Jan. 2015
By Frederick L. Fuller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book should be read by theists and atheists. Remsberg's research is complete and hard to argue against. Recommended highly.
