Despite the playful name, this book is a serious and well referenced research book into comparative religion and the making of the Christian religion. It won first place for Religious non-fiction at the Next Generation Indie Book Awards, and the Russian language rights have been sold to Eksmo (Russia’s biggest publisher) for a 4,000 copy run. It’s gotten positive reviews from Midwest Book Review,, Portland Review of Books and Skeptic Magazine as well as dozens of blogs and websites. From ancient mystery religions to modern fairy tales, from fictional Hogwarts to the ruins of Jerusalem, Derek Murphy, PhD in Comparative Literature at one of the world’s top universities, zooms in on one crucial question: How do we separate the obviously mythical literature of Jesus Christ from the historical man himself?

Of course the cover caught my attention immediately but the contents of the book are even more so, it was a fascinating, well researched and compelling read and I highly recommend it.
