Hi there –
You’ve probably heard about the spate of “historical Jesus” books lately, including one by FOX news anchor Bill O’Reilly, a devout Catholic. As one might imagine, his book is biased, as are those by others released within the past year or two. All seek to “prove” that there was a historical Jesus and that he was, unsurprisingly, what the author valued most in a divine personage. In other words, to O’Reilly, Jesus is the perfect Catholic exemplar, while the devout Muslim Reza Aslan’s Jesus is straight out of the Koran and Islamic tradition.
Please feel free to forget about these shallow and biased efforts that ignore critical scholarship and the subjects of comparative religion and mythology. Below is the book that should be a no. 1 bestseller in a world that values science and truth. Note that my research is drawn from an almost all-Christian bibliography and represents the state-of-the-art scholarship on the subject, as found in seminaries and theological universities and colleges. In reality, my book is the antidote to the disingenuous and deleterious claptrap in these other tomes.
Amazon review of Who Was Jesus? Fingerprints of The Christ by D.M. Murdock
5.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent, October 2, 2013
By John Holland
If you’re looking for a book that will lift the veil of secrecy with Christianity then you’ve found the right book. It’s in-depth, organized, sourced, and courtroom convincing. I recommend it to everyone that wants to know the history of the historical Jesus from a secular point of view.
