Product Description

Synopsis

It is easy to beleive that Jesus was sinless, sexless and all-knowing, if that is all you have ever been taught. But what was Christ, the man, really like? Christians have been denied vital information cocerning their relgion and Christ's true message has been lost in a sea of religious dogma. This text is a personal odyssey, a journey of exploration into the true heart of the lost Christian message. Written with the questing spirit of a natural seeker, it questions the parlous spiritual state of mankind, and the plight of a Jesus who has become the unwitting prisoner of Church dogma.

HASH(0x9195af9c) out of 5 stars Reasonable historical analysis of Christianity 27 Oct. 1999
By Roger McEvilly (the guilty bystander) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Douglas Lockhart attempts to critically analyse the origin and development of "Christianity" from an objective viewpoint, and appears to shed light on some of the conumdrums which scholars have troubled over for many years. Don't expect an unthinking biased appraisal of Christianity, nor a conventional and mundane interpretation of the development of this complex sect of Judaism of the 1st century AD. I was impressed with the intergration and recognition of gnostic thought with early theology, as this has not been adequately recognised in the past. Also important was the emphasis on much within Christianity which has always been of a political nature, in addition to the normal failings of human beings to properly understand the nature of the truth, goodwill to others and whatever this sect of Judaism ever had that was any good, much of which has been changed and lost over time. The book comes closer to understanding the nature and purpose of Christianity than many others of its type.

HASH(0x9195e00c) out of 5 stars Closer and closer to the truth. 17 Dec. 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
"Jesus the Heretic" is very well researched, clearly written, entertaining and informative. Anyone in search of their Christian roots and the truth behind Christian origins, will find interesting answers and hypothesis within these pages. Whether we agree with Lockhart's conclusions or not, the fact is that along with many other Biblical authors such as Eisenman and Wise, Schonfield, Smith and Thiering, we are getting closer and closer to the truth. Highly recommended.

HASH(0x91fa0090) out of 5 stars Obviously not for conservative Christians 19 May 2014
By Thomas Reissmann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
How anybody could think that this is a traditional Christian story when already in the title Jesus is called a Heretic, is beyond me. But for anybody with an open mind this book is quite amazing. I read this years ago and it stayed with me to this day. It just made me look at Christianity and how the origins of Christianity were so much more pure than what it has become. Loved it!

HASH(0x9195e294) out of 5 stars Beautifully written and well researched 12 Jun. 2011
By Mark Fulton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Douglas Lockhart goes way beyond the average with his scholarship and his easy to read in depth analysis of jesus and his contemporaries. The essential Jewishness of Jesus is emphasised, a fact the average Christian today fails to appreciate. I have made a study of Jesus and consulted many texts, yet found myself referring time and again back to this book. I highly recommend it to anyone who has questions about Jesus.

HASH(0x9195e414) out of 5 stars Non-Christian Author 31 Oct. 2010
By Mark Webster - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Author admits not being a christian, and though it comments on Jesus not being God, I see no value in the rest of the material. (No, Jesus is not lord God; he's lord Messiah)
