“This book asks us to do what so many won’t: to consider objectively the real character of Jesus.
Mirsch uncovers the purpose of Jesus’ life through codes and metaphors in the Gospels. We understand the hidden plan of a revolt against the Roman authorities in the area that would be precipitated by a crucifixion and a faked death and resurrection.
Many believers may turn away from this message because it violates the basic tenet of their faith: that Jesus is perfect and therefore incapable of this type of deception and encouragement of the use of force.
It is their loss. I found the book fascinating and highly recommend it.”
“Finally, a well-written, thoroughly researched and fully documented summary of what I have believed my whole life! I now have a concrete guide to help me offer factual rebuttals to my overly-zealous religious friends! Great book!”
