Publisher's Summary

Why would anyone think Jesus never existed? Isn't it perfectly reasonable to accept that he was a real first century figure? As it turns out: No.
Nailed sheds light on 10 beloved Christian myths, and, with evidence gathered from historians across the theological spectrum, shows how they point to a Jesus Christ created solely through allegorical alchemy of hope and imagination; a messiah transformed from a purely literary, theological construct into the familiar figure of Jesus - in short, a purely mythic Christ.

Great primer for the Christ-Myth theory

A a novice on the CM theory, I found this book very accessible. He gets right to the point in layperson language. Definitely a good starting point. I have previously enjoyed books by Richard Carrier and Robert Price on the same topic but found much of the material sailing over my head without slow and careful reading and rereading.

Looking forward to his upcoming book "Jesus: Mything in Action" as well!

Compelling!

The author reviews much of the ancient literature as well as biblical scholarship. His case against the historicity of a man named Yeshua from Nazareth is argued quite convincingly. At the very least, his arguments ought to give any objective reader cause to question whether Jesus existed at all, let alone whether he was a super hero god-man. Not a good book for Christians who wish to remain Christian. Then again, if you are interested in honest scholarship of biblical texts and dogma, you would be remiss to ignore this book.

This audio version features the author. Unfortunately, I felt that he rushed his way through the reading. I suspect that this might be because his thoughts are fast-paced and he is extremely familiar with the content. I wanted to linger a moment on some of the ideas being expressed before moving on to the next idea. I think I will need to listen to the book again so I can follow the evidence and the arguments more closely.
