About the book:

Meet the genius behind the myth. From the study of creativity and mythologycomes a startling new perspective on the life of Jesus of Nazareth. Thebook adopts Joseph Schonfield's thesis that Jesus stage-managed his owncrucifixion and resurrection, accepts the suggestion of a number ofscholars that there was a romantic relationship between Jesus and Mary,and proposes that Lazarus' resurrection was a publicity stunt to raiseinterest in a flagging mission. But most startling of all is the book'snew theology. Jesus' goal was not to save the world but to liberate ourminds from superstition. His message was simple -- seek first theKingdom of Heaven and all else will follow, for within the Kingdom ofHeaven lies all the human heart could ever desire. Within the realm ofthe mind through the creative process lies escape from despair. This is his 'good news'."The greatest hero is intriguing "not only because it suggests a different and original explanation of the critical events in Jesus' life and death and resurrection (with Jesus still depicted as a good and heroic man), but because it embodies some very thoughtful interpretations of some of Jesus' most puzzling pronouncements."¿¿ James R. Horne, Philosophy Professor, Rev. and author of Beyond Mysticism, The Moral Mystic and Mysticism and Vocation. ¿¿¿¿ More¿
