Publisher's Summary

This explosive work of history unearths clues that finally demonstrate the truth about one of the world's great religions: that it was born out of the conflict between the Romans and messianic Jews who fought a bitter war with each other during the first century. The Romans employed a tactic they routinely used to conquer and absorb other nations: they grafted their imperial rule onto the religion of the conquered. After 30 years of research, authors James S. Valliant and C.W. Fahy present irrefutable archaeological and textual evidence that proves Christianity was created by Roman Caesars in this book that breaks new ground in Christian scholarship and is destined to change the way the world looks at ancient religions forever.

Inherited from a long-past era of tyranny, war and deliberate religious fraud, could Christianity have been created for an entirely different purpose than we have been lead to believe? Praised by scholars like Dead Sea Scrolls translator Robert Eisenman (James the Brother of Jesus), this exhaustive synthesis of historical detective work integrates all of the ancient sources about the earliest Christians and reveals new archaeological evidence for the first time. And, despite the fable presented in current best sellers like Bill O'Reilly's Killing Jesus, the evidence presented in Creating Christ is irrefutable: Christianity was invented by Roman Emperors.

    Story
    "Surely The Truth will set you free."

    Objectivity and a careful consideration does not begin to describe this book. The astounding conclusions are so obvious, in retrospect, and so unknown in common parlance, that one can see their daily effect on world events but before reading this they are invisible. This is great literature of the highest intellectual tradition, a solid integration that makes new discovery possible whilst carefully considering ALL the facts.

    "Nice theory"

    This book is a really good theory about the origins of early Christianity. I begin to wonder if the author is right or wrong. Well written book!

    "Well reasoned, meticulously researched & presented"
    Where does Creating Christ rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Finally, there is a well reasoned, meticulously researched & presented, historically accurate explanation for the birth of Christianity.The authors are able to set the historical context with copious annotating, and make their case after having each done 30 years of research. It is an important work.


    Any additional comments?

    It comes with high-quality pdf with all the images and notes.<br/>The reader is perfect in all respects: pace, pronunciation, tone, inflection, etc.

    "exhaustive, intricate anayllsis of a "Santa Story'"
    What did you like best about Creating Christ? What did you like least?

    this book is for people that REALLY want to get into the minute clues/research of why /how Christianity was indeed "an invention' by (now) ancient elites to control mass populations...but for those that have less time on their hands,,might want to skip to other readings to get bigger picture, "bigger clues" & understanding of history.


    Have you listened to any of Chris MacDonnell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    not bad...liked it


    Any additional comments?

    not bad, just a bit too intricate for someone who wants to kind of skip the obvious and get a bigger understanding of ENTIRE history of world. however i guess this book would be good 'court evidence" for those that are simply closed to idea that Christianity was/is a hoax
