    Robertson's controversial 1903 publication recognised the pagan and mythical elements of the standard Christian Gospels. My copy is a 'new revised edition' which was published in 1967 (found in a second-hand bookshop in Brisbane).Robertson backs his revelations with strong biblical research to point out and enumerates the many saviour-gods found in all religions. The book then places the Christian claims within this larger context of commonality shared by pagan and other religious stories. Appar [...]

    I've loaned this book to my mom because I found it so fascinating.I think the only difficulty I had with it is the fact that he addresses the same issue over and over and over again instead of just stating the theory and then backing it up with evidence. But the book is already pretty small, so they probably did it for filler.
