From the Publisher"A seminal work…. His style is engaging and meant for a popular audience. This theological detective story deserves wide readership and discussion."
—The Hamilton Spectator
"Forget about Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code and fictional conspiratorial machinations about whether Jesus and Mary Magdalene had children, Barrie Wilson has produced a significant and sensational work of scholarship. And it is truly religious dynamite." —The Globe and Mail
"Move over, Dan Brown, there's a new Jesus conspiracy theorist in town."
"The New Testament Gospels, particularly the Acts of the Apostles, are presented as early examples of sophisticated spin.. the book is certainly controversial"
—The Times (UK)
"A tour de force."
— Simcha Jacobovici, Producer/Director, The Lost Tomb of Jesus
"How Jesus Became Christian is a groundbreaking and highly controversial work that is sure to provoke considerable attention."
— Prof. Patrick Gray, University of Toronto
"Wilson’s learned foray into the great debate over Christian origins is to be heartily welcomed. Agree or disagree, the eager reader will be gripped — and at times possibly shocked — by the author's bold investigation of one of the greatest mysteries of all time: how did the Christianity of the earliest Church become the orthodox ‘churchianity’ of the mid-fourth and all succeeding centuries?"
—Tom Harpur, author of The Pagan Christ
