Overview

Startling new archaeological discoveries and such groundbreaking cultural phenomena as The Da Vinci Code and The Passion of the Christ have sparked a renaissance in impassioned controversies about religion and the life of Christ. Now, Sylvia Browne, with the help of her spiritual guide, delivers the truth about Him, His teachings, and His works for God as she answers such provocative questions as:

- Was there a virgin birth?
- Was there a Star of Bethlehem?
- What did Jesus do for the first 30 years of his life?
- What really happened at the crucifixion?
- Was he married? Was he divine?
- Is a Jesus lineage a possibility?

In Browne's own words, the answers may "rattle the cages" of her millions of readers-answers that could only have come from someone who has visited the afterlife.

    Total blasphemy

    I wanted to through this book away after I read it. This book is not for Catholics. The whole book is based on a mystical person that she talks to who tells her what happen as if he really knew. In this book Jesus does not die for our sins and does not rise on the third day. Therefore according to Sylvia our sins are not forgiving and Jesus did not overcome death. this book rates with card readers and bone readers. This book is foreign to the bible.

    Thought Provoking and Moving

    I just finished 'The Mystical Life of Jesus' in one day. I could not put it down! As a Christian, I read it with an open mind and an open heart. The book seeks to uncover the truth about Jesus' life and his teachings as told to Ms. Browne by her spirit guide. This book is definitely thought provoking and I admire Ms. Browne for her courage and insight on such a controversial subject.

    Fabulous! Thank you Sylvia!

    I was raised a Catholic and attended Catholic schools from K-12. During religion classes I always questioned the bible and the Vatican teachings - BIG mistake! As I grew into adulthood, I became better educated and I began to pull away from my Catholic faith - I survived and still feel God's love, despite being taught that the Catholic way is the only way - but realized I didn't really fit into the other religions I read about. I then began to read the books scholars and archeologists put out on their thoughts and findings. I started to piece Jesus' life together myself and formed my own beliefs. Sylvia's book only affirms my decision to think for myself and how I grow closer to God.

    Totally misses the mark

    Having read this book I was only able to award it 1* as I found it very disappointing.It is full of half truths and with constant references to the Bible to support her arguments, Sylvia Browne falls well short of the mark.Should you want to read a book on this topic which is truly astounding I would thoroughly recommend a book by Claire Heaton entitled Marthas Voice Portrait in Words.Once you have started to read this book you will not be able to put it down.Claire Heaton's book will enable you to make your own comparison between the two and you will understand what I mean.The truth will resonate within you once you have understood her message.You will have no more doubts about this subject.It settles all misconceptions once and for all.

    Makes you Think

    I loved this book. I couldn't put it down. I'm glad Ms. Browne wrote it and was brave a enough to do so. I recommended it to anyone that has an open mind and who wants to have better understanding of the life of Jesus.

    Best book ever

    read this book it's outstanding, even if your a strong believer of the christian faith you should still read this, because you should know the whole truth about your lord and what he really taught about, not just what the church made up and lied about only to control and gain power.

    Amazing book

    If you're open minded to the possibility that the Bible doesn't give you the whole story this book contains some amazing revelations. From the personal life of Jesus to the history of Christianity and the Bible and details surrounding the crucifixtion and beyond, I found the book enlightening and thought-provoking. A must read if you agree that there's more to the story than you've been taught. My only criticism is that I would have like citations for the historical references, not just the Biblical.

    A reviewer

    When I read this book, i did just what sylvia said, i read it with an open mind. not once while i was reading the words on the pages did i doubt what i was reading. true, deep devoted christians and catholics and just anyone so convinced by their religions will close this book and preach it to be blasphemy, but those who want to know and find truth, will find it insightful.

    Fabulous

    You really need to keep an open mind when you read this book as it goes against the grain of what most people have been taught. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. To me, it all made sense. I would recommend this for anyone searching for the truth. I respect Syvlias' opinion and love how she puts in her books, to keep what you need and throw away the rest.I own all of Sylvias books, they just keep getting better and better.
