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!

,excellent narration, debatable theory.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Maybe, depends on whether they are interested in religion, and in debating what a controversial theory, that at times verges on the conspiracy ideas of holy blood.

What could David Fitzgerald have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

his narration was excellent, but many of his points seem to be addressing the miraculous Jesus of the religion, not whether there was a historical Jesus.

Do you think Nailed: Ten Christian Myths That Show Jesus Never Existed at All needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes, to address issues, and respond to criticisms.
