This book send a pretty interesting shock wave through christianity, and it takes a lot to shake a christian these days, the chuch being too busy trying to cover up one scandal after another in the present, it doesn't have time anymore to deal with the ones rooted at its origins.
Tim Freke makes it clear at the beginning of the book that its aim was not so much a single minded attack on christianity (and reitereates this at various points in the book) but to offer a different path, an alternate way of lookin at and dealing with its legacy, which no doubt the church will ignore and its proponents will decry as some of the books critics have tried, which some of the negative comments here are proof of, falling back on very weak arguments that the writer is not enough of a scholar or lacks the academic pedigree to be taken seriously or that the secondary literature on the subject he refers to is too obscure and hard to find. Really? That's the best they came up with?
Just read the book and judge for yourself and no, he's no Dan Brown, thank unconscious field, he makes a very convincing case and offers a glimpse to a different path of spirituality which I can recommend and read some of his other work, especially The Mystery Experience.

I am extremely interested in early Christianity. This is the best book I have read so far on the subject and it answers my very fundamental question on Christianity, that is to say why do I feel that I can not take the bible literally and if i can't, what can I learn from it ? This book brings so many answers to my questions and takes me back to a personal spiritual world . A must !

Thais is a brilliant book. Gave me a vocabulary to describe what I have always felt but not had the words for. A real revelation to find that there are others who have exactly the same views. Will definitely follow this up

This book is a revelation in itself. Am now reading 'Jesus and the Goddess'. It is quite an eye-opener that should be required reading for anyone interested in religious and spiritual matters.

A really interesting discussion, very thought provoking. An outstanding read. I wish it had been longer, perhaps with more reference to the missing gospels and a clear comparison time lines.
