About the Author

Arthur Drews (1865 - 1935) was a German writer, historian, philosopher, and one of the most prominent proponents of the theory that Jesus was a mythological figure. In such books as The Christ Myth and Witness to the Historicity of the Gospels, Drews argued that Christ was a fabrication concocted from Jewish and pagan mythological sources.

While I in no way agree with the conclusions Arthur Drews presents in the book, I do think it is a joy to read, and opens the path to reflection on the deeper meaning of Jesus as the manifestation of the Holy Spirit, such as he is portrayed in ACIM, and which was implicitly understood by probably at least Mary Magdalen and the first apostles if they experienced the resurrection. The realization that the historical person of Jezus is not the point of the story, but rather what he symbolized is - that is the important issue which is made easier to understand by questioning the disservice that the ludicrous quest for the 'historical Jesus' has rendered.
