The clues leading to these startling conclusions are found in the writings of the first-century historian Flavius Josephus, whose Wars of the Jews is one of the only historical chronicles of this period. Closely comparing the work of Josephus with the New Testament Gospels, Caesar's Messiah demonstrates that the Romans directed the writing of both. Their purpose: to offer a vision of a "peaceful Messiah" who would serve as an alternative to the revolutionary leaders who were rocking first-century Israel and threatening Rome.
Similarly, Caesar's Messiah will rock our understanding of Christian history as it reveals that Jesus was a fictional character portrayed in four Gospels written not by Christians but Romans. This Flavian Signature edition adds Atwill's latest discoveries of numerous parallel events in sequence which ultimately reveal the identity of the true authors of the Gospels.

A bold challenge to the core of Christianity
Have you listened to any of John Alan Martinson Jr.’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
This is the first time i have listened to John Alan Martinson Jr.'s narration. His delivery is deliberate and measured. The deep and authoritative tone of his voice and the subtle inflection he employs endeared me as the listener, taking me deeper into the content of the book. These quality's helped me immensely as i am by no means an expert on the topic.
Any additional comments?
This was a highly compelling read, filled with theories and ideas that make a lot of sense.
I found it an informative and exciting work.

Strong Wake Up Call
Nobody found it odd that Jesus didn't have anything to say against slavery? I would think that would be one of the first clues that the religion is a fraud designed to pacify people...or perhaps the part about the dead coming up out of their graves and walking around town (Matthew 27:52). Funny that's there's no record of any such event ever taking place. In fact, there's no record of Jesus Christ ever existing, nor any of his apostles, but that hasn't stopped Christians from believing in the story. Which begs the question: now that Joseph Atwill has proven beyond any possible shadow of a doubt that Jesus Christ is just a character that the Romans invented, are Christians going to wake up? I really don't think that's likely, but for what it's worth, I hope Mr. Atwill's work does help the world wake up from this mind-numbing religion.
I guess the real joke is that Christians have been murdering and persecuting "pagans" and "heathens" for centuries...and all along their beloved Jesus Christ was no more real than Mickey Mouse or Scooby-Doo.
