The Christ Myth
by Arthur Drews
Publisher: T. Fisher Unwin 1910
Number of pages: 316
Eminent German philosopher Arthur Drews exposes the Jesus of the gospels as a mythical character, arguing that no basis exists for seeking a historical figure behind the Christ myth. Through a comparative study of ancient religions, Drews shows that Christianity is a syncretism of various pagan and Jewish beliefs, and that a strong pre-Christian cult of Jesus as son of God and messiah existed.
