The only book you’ll ever need to read about Christianity.
This remarkable book provides a critical overview of Christian beliefs and the evidence for them. Where did these beliefs come from? Are there good reasons to believe Christianity is true?
Bill Zuersher clearly explains each of Christianity’s major beliefs. He then proceeds to demonstrate significant difficulties with each of them. The book tackles these beliefs in a logical order, beginning with the problems at the root of virtually all religions, suffering and death, and culminating in their supposed resolution through Jesus.
Mr. Zuersher also examines the evidence for Christianity, namely religious writings and the historical fact of the early Jesus movement. He makes the case that this evidence does not support the religion’s claims and he provides naturalistic alternative explanations for how its core beliefs arose.
In these pages we see the coalescence of Jewish and Zoroastrian religious ideas with those of Greek philosophy and mystery cults, to form the belief system we recognize as Christianity today. The result, Mr. Zuersher argues, is not revealed truth, but rather a human patchwork which contains unwarranted assumptions and logical flaws, all founded upon questionable evidence.
Biografía del autor:
Entertaining throughout, it is must-reading for skeptics, apologists, and anyone interested the world’s largest religion or the culture wars behind today’s politics — an invaluable resource for students and teachers, writers and debaters.
BILL ZUERSHER is an activist for the separation of church and state. He studied economics and government at Yale and then worked for two decades in the energy industry before dedicating himself to teaching and writing. He has summarized his own religious views in his debates: I do not believe in the existence of any gods or goddesses. It is certainly possible that one or more such beings exist, but if so, they do not appear to expend much effort superintending the affairs of this world. He and his wife, Linda, live in southern California.
