Publisher's Summary

This explosive work of history unearths clues that finally demonstrate the truth about one of the world's great religions: that it was born out of the conflict between the Romans and messianic Jews who fought a bitter war with each other during the first century. The Romans employed a tactic they routinely used to conquer and absorb other nations: they grafted their imperial rule onto the religion of the conquered. After 30 years of research, authors James S. Valliant and C.W. Fahy present irrefutable archaeological and textual evidence that proves Christianity was created by Roman Caesars in this book that breaks new ground in Christian scholarship and is destined to change the way the world looks at ancient religions forever.
Inherited from a long-past era of tyranny, war and deliberate religious fraud, could Christianity have been created for an entirely different purpose than we have been lead to believe? Praised by scholars like Dead Sea Scrolls translator Robert Eisenman (James the Brother of Jesus), this exhaustive synthesis of historical detective work integrates all of the ancient sources about the earliest Christians and reveals new archaeological evidence for the first time. And, despite the fable presented in current best sellers like Bill O'Reilly's Killing Jesus, the evidence presented in Creating Christ is irrefutable: Christianity was invented by Roman Emperors.

Surely The Truth will set you free.

Objectivity and a careful consideration does not begin to describe this book. The astounding conclusions are so obvious, in retrospect, and so unknown in common parlance, that one can see their daily effect on world events but before reading this they are invisible. This is great literature of the highest intellectual tradition, a solid integration that makes new discovery possible whilst carefully considering ALL the facts.

Highly Recommended. Brilliant and Masterful.

A convincing, exciting, fascinating read. Highly recommended. Beautifully written and thoroughly evidenced. Truly illuminating. The history of Western civilization finally makes sense.

Gave up after an hour of droning

The presenter voice is hard to listen to for any length of time. The book is very academic for those research such matters. Not agreeable for true spirit filled believers of Jesus (Yeshua) as the Messiah. At least the first hour isn't - then had to stop listening.
