Shattering the Christ Myth

J.P. Holding of Tektonics apologetic ministry has edited (and substantially written) a new book providing a detailed rebuttal of the Christ Myth in its various guises. I have written an introduction to the book which compares the Christ Myth to the theory that Shakespeare didn't write the works of Shakespeare. I also offer a brief resume of the historiography of the Christ Myth going back to its nineteenth century origins.

This book should now, I believe, be the standard reference for anyone wanting to find a response to the various internet and published mythologists. You can get it from or However, best of all would be if you order a copy from your local store and demand to know why they aren't stocking it.

No reviews yet, but do please let me know if you see any.

I think the title is a poor choice. If someone knew nothing else about the book, they might think it's claiming "Jesus was a myth" when it's just the opposite.

Quite the opposite, I would say.

Shattering a myth is not precisely the same as establishing or confirming one - last I checked.

Ordered it on the day it was released, BTW.
