Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peeling Away the Layers of Myth Besides being an exellent writer, Burton Mack takes his time, builds his case and presents his points in such a way so as to clarify many of the myths surrounding the origins of christianity. Jesus was an egalitarian, a republican and a political being. He was a good man but he was no son of God. This book is a great read for anyone wanting answers to time worn questions. Buy it.
