Product description

Product Description

About the book:
David Fitzgerald’s award-winning 2010 book Nailed: Ten Christian Myths That Show Jesus Never Existed At All pointed out the top ten fatal flaws of Christianity’s origin story. Now, Jesus: Mything in Action presents the most compelling new findings in Jesus Myth theory and critically examines its controversial reception by biblical scholars, the extent and reliability of our sources for Jesus, and reveals the surprising history behind Jesus’ evolution.

In this volume:
Mything in Action, vol. I (chapters 1 – 12) looks at the myths of Jesus Mythicism: what it is and isn’t; what biblical scholars are saying about it (and why); and examines our oldest “biographical” source for Jesus – the allegorical story we know as the Gospel of Mark.

This is a great summary of not only the mythicist position, and the rationale behind it, but also a terrific summation of decades (if not centuries) of Old and New Testament textual criticism.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thanks Dave! 9 May 2017
By Zugzwang - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
After reading Nailed, I bought another copy to keep because I didn't think it could be improved upon; I was wrong. With specific examples, David has confirmed my suspicions that the statements about Jesus I often heard from by my former pastors and apologists were desperate attempts to shore up Christianity rather than espousing "objective historical facts" - as they still claim. I am relieved that writers like David have and are helping lay people like myself to escape the echo-chamber I once inhabited, created and run by Christians - pretending that it is only within that chamber that truth and objectivity can reside. If Christianity is true, then it makes no sense that its leaders (both ancient and modern) seem so nervous and harsh about dissenting views - a situation I once associated with cults and religions such as Islam - where apostasy is a capital offense - along the lines outlined in the Bible and perpetrated by Christians not long ago; when heretics were burnt alive - - not much has changed. Thankfully, Christianity has lost the power to burn heretics alive - it can only deny them employment or subject them to ridicule in their echo-chamber. Thanks Dave!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very fast, very interesting, and very fun read! 28 March 2017
By Richard Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Having previously read many books about the Old and New Testament, including Richard Carrier's book, "On the Historicity of Jesus," I thought I wouldn't necessarily learn much more from this book. Thus, I purchased only the first volume. Being not able to stop myself from reading it, during every spare minute of my day and even into the late hours of the night, I must now immediately purchase the next two volumes! The book goes into a lot of detail, however it's all written with a great sense of humor and an easy to read style! I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of my reading. Even when the book spent a lot of time detailing the stories of how others in the field have been treated by their peers and institutions, it never failed to be interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading for truth seekers 22 May 2017
By detour de force - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The true story of how the original fake news was created. Fitzgerald gathers the best research and presents the obvious reality that there is no evidence that Jesus ever existed. None. Not even Fascist Christ. Well written, easy to understand despite the detail and occasional dives into the weeds. Fitzgerald also shares his keen sense of humor. A very human look at a very human creation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't miss this one 15 April 2017
By JORGE BUSTIOS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
David Fitzgerald nailed (pun intended) it again. In this amazing first volume of three he analyzes the gospels with such accuracy, supporting evidence and organized discourse that it is hard not to agree with him in the logical conclusion that follows: the mythic nature of Jesus is the only plausible explanation to the myriad of contradictions and anachronisms present in the gospels. David maintains the mild, colloquial and sometimes funny style that we found in his previous books making this one a page-turner. Can't wait to read Volumes 2 and 3.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long Awaited and Worth it, Volume I 29 April 2017
By Bill K - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Most of the material in this book summarizes more scholarly studies by other Jesus Mythicists, but David Fitzgerald presents it in a different way so that it is easier to read, and more fun. His evidence is overwhelming, and the logic is compelling. I waited a long time for Mything in Action, and the book was worth it.
