'Christ in Egypt' Reviews & Book Search!

If you haven't had a chance to check out my book Christ in Egypt, now's the time! I've added a couple of great reviews, as well as the ability to search the book - a fantastic feature.

If you are a fan of "Zeitgeist, Part 1," you will want to have this book. In CIE, I go into great detail about the correspondences between the Egyptian gods Horus/Osiris and Jesus Christ. This nearly 600-page book was a huge amount of work for me, as I tracked down and translated original texts and primary sources in Egyptian, Greek and Latin, as well as working in other languages, including Hebrew, French and German.

This book is great as a reference text, with its extensive index, and I've heard that it is being used in a couple of schools as a textbook.

Following are excerpts of reviews you'll want to read!

"I find myself in full agreement with Acharya S/D.M. Murdock..."

"...We are in agreement on the thoroughly syncretic character of primitive Christianity, evolving from earlier mythemes and rituals, especially those of Egypt. It is almost as important in Christ in Egypt to argue for an astro-religious origin for the mythemes, and there, too, I agree with the learned author....

"...I find it undeniable that...many, many of the epic heroes and ancient patriarchs and matriarchs of the Old Testament were personified stars, planets, and constellations..."

"I find myself in full agreement with Acharya S/D.M. Murdock: 'we assert that Christianity constitutes Gnosticism historicized and Judaized, likewise representing a synthesis of Egyptian, Jewish and Greek religion and mythology, among others [including Buddhism, via King Asoka's missionaries] from around the "known world"' (p. 278). 'Christianity is largely the product of Egyptian religion being Judaized and historicized' (p. 482)."

Dr. Robert M. Price,
Author, "The Pre-Nicene New Testament"


"What a magnificent work!"

"This is the book that should convince any rational reader that the Jesus story is the Horus story is the story of the heavens and of the seasons; the story containing motifs outlining humankind's year by year struggle to survive and progress; the story of birth, life, death, and resurrection....

"We must take control of our futures by taking control our past by remembering what truly was. Acharya is helping us to remember what was and why."

Allan J., UK


If you enjoy the history of religion, you will absolutely want to have this book! And, of course, it will make a great Christmas gift for anyone who loves comparative religion and mythology.
