twisting of information

there is a lot of references to other writings that had nothing to do with the life of Jesus. Never once did they refer back to the Old Testament that I remember. also reference things that happened hundreds of years after Jesus Life 2 implicate Jesus was not the son of God and his teachings were pagan. I think this book was motivational to dispute Christianity.

Nothing new about Jesus

This was 30 minute exercise that managed to tell us who are not Fundamentalist Christians what is widely know. Specifically that the Gospels have inconsistencies among them, that the life of the historic Jesus cannot be inferred from them, that he was influenced by Eastern Philosophy, perhaps through the Essen sect of Judaism, and that the gospel authors relied on pagan mythology to create a symbol of Christo, Messiah, King Arthur, Archetypal story. He never ties this in with Christian Mystics, who are in no way represent a unified theosophy.

enjoyable but skimpy on I formation

I enjoyed this but it was too short and didn't give enough information. I had hoped for more.

short and sweet

if you have read or listened to any of manly p halls works then this is a good purchase, if you haven't then you may not know what your in for and I suggest doing some research. as for the quality of the work itself, it is well read and the fact that it is written by manly p hall says enough for it.
