Editorial Reviews

Robert C. Newman
An excellent apologetic . . . showing the insuperable problems of viewing Christianity as an outgrowth of Greek philosophy, the Hellenistic mystery religions, or gnosticism.
F. F. Bruce
Not content with refuting unsound arguments, Nash makes positive contributions to the subject under discussion.
Edwin Yamauchi
A lucid and superb book.

Edwin Yamauchi
Professor Nash has written a lucid and superb book, which will prove especially useful to students in colleges and universities who still hear some ill-founded comparisons between the pagan mystery religions and Christianity from their professors.
