The Pagan Christ ?


This is Harpur’s most radical and groundbreaking work to date, in which he digs deep into the origins of Christianity and how the early Christian church covered up all attempts to reveal the Bible as myth.

What began as a universal belief system has become a ritualistic institution headed by ultraconservative literalists. As he reconsiders a lifetime of worship and study, Harpur reveals a cosmic faith built on these truths that the modern church has renounced. His message is clear: our blind faith in literalism is killing Christianity. Only with a return to an inclusive religion where Christ lives within each of us will we gain a true understanding of who we are and who we are intended to become.

So, what if it could be proven that Jesus never existed? What if there was evidence that every word of the New Testament — the cornerstone of Christianity — is based on myth and metaphor?Based on Tom Harpur’s national bestseller, The Pagan Christ examines these very questions. During his research, Harpur discovered that the New Testament is wholly based on Egyptian mythology, that Jesus Christ never lived, and that — indeed — the text was always meant to be read allegorically. It was the founders of the Church who duped the world into taking a literal approach to the scriptures. And, according to Harpur, this was their fatal error — and the very reason Christianity is struggling today.The mission of The Pagan Christ is not to accelerate Christianity’s slow demise, but to breath new life into its holy book and, in the process, bring the world a richer, more spiritual faith

    Most religions, dating back to ancient ancient history, are merely adaptations and counterfeits of one another. The ancients did their best to make sense of the world around them, and they didn’t do a terrible job of it. Personally, I don’t find it surprising at all that today’s “Christian” traditions are merely adaptations of ancient pagan ones.
