About the book:

The Making of the Christian Myth

Commencing in mid February 2004, SBS TV (Australia) will run a twopart documentary based on this title.

In this groundbreaking and controversial book, Burton Mack brilliantly exposes how the Gospels are fictional mythologies created by different communities for various purposes and are only distantly related to the actual historical Jesus.

Macks innovative scholarship which boldly challenges traditional Christian understanding will change the way you approach the New Testament and think about how Christianity arose.

The clarity of Macks prose and the intelligent pursuit of his subject make compelling reading. Macks investigation of the various groups and strands of the early Christian community out of which were generated the texts of Christianitys first anthology of religious literature and makes sense of a topic that has been confusing.
