Initially, this book was begun with the hope of proving the efficacy of the teachings associated with The Bible and that The Bible is a factual and accurate portrayal of the people and the times. After all, it would be so much easier to just accept what you’re told to believe and go on oblivious to life’s realities. During more than 25 years of research into ancient history, mythology, comparative religions, and mystical traditions facts began to slowly emerge; facts that were not expected and could not be doubted.
The Gospel Truth: The Heresy of History presents historical facts. It does not give you data then explain it for you. It does not try to put forth a philosophy based on an interpretation of the information gathered and presented.
The Gospel Truth: The Heresy of History has been described as, "The easiest to read and most complete book of that genre?" and a “wealth of new information." It "…puts a lot of myths to rest …." It has been called a "must read for anyone interested in expanding their knowledge" of ancient history and Biblical facts.
A maxim in history is that "History is written by the winner." It is so clearly shown in this book. Biblical and Christian history gives us one perspective and the historical and personal writings of the times give another.
The Gospel Truth: The Heresy of History is divided into three main parts. The first part pertains to the Hebrew Scriptures. In this section, you will find out that the Hebrew Scriptures are actually epic poetry, not a portrayal of anything that ever happened. You will see who the writers of these Scriptures were and when they were written. As you read on, you will discover facts about the Prophets and the accuracy of the Hebrew Scriptures as history. Lastly, you will find how the god of Israel who resided in the city of Jerusalem became THE universal Deity.
Part two presents the Christian Scriptures and factual Christian history. This section begins with a description of first century (CE) Palestine. With this description you get a background into the people and the times. From that perspective, early Christianity developed and you will see what influenced the early Christians and their philosophy. Next, is a discussion of the writing of the Christian Scriptures and how it is that we have only four Gospels, Acts, Revelations and twenty-one Epistles. Following, you will see the connections found between the story of Jesus and the mythologies, writings, and Mystery Religions of the time. Then, the early Church Councils and their proceedings will put Christian beliefs into a new light.
Finally, the Afterward brings the historical findings together into a philosophical and psychological perspective.
The Gospel Truth: The Heresy of History presents significant insights to give you the knowledge and understanding of the when, the why, and the who of The Bible.
