First published in 1910, THE CHRIST MYTH drew violent criticism from theologians, the press, and the public. Eminent German philosopher Arthur Drews (1865-1935) shows that Christianity is a syncretism of various pagan and Jewish beliefs. This is a valuable sourcebook for students of religion and all those interested in examining the origins of Christianity.

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.
