Why would anyone think Jesus never existed? Isn't it perfectly reasonable to accept that he was a real first century figure? As it turns out, no. NAILED sheds light on ten beloved Christian myths, and, with evidence gathered from historians across the theological spectrum, shows how they point to a Jesus Christ created solely through allegorical alchemy of hope and imagination; a messiah transformed from a purely literary, theological construct into the familiar figure of Jesus - in short, a purely mythic Christ.

    Playing loose with the facts

    An interesting book, Fitzgerald seems more intent on debunking Xianity than on the historocity of Jesus. A much better book dealing with Jesus is David Klinghoeffer's Why the Jews Rejected Jesus.
