Reviews - What do customers think about The Case Against 'Jesus'?
Ha ha! GREAT parody! May 1, 2008
I mean it! This is an absolutely AWESOME parody of the absolutely worst arguments used against the existence of a historical Jesus. Truly! I commend Burton Woof -- er, Wolfe -- for this tremendous contribution to historical Jesus studies. No joke! I mean, just in the section on Tacitus, look at these wondrous, never-revealed facts:
* Peter Jennings was a "propagdanist" for Christianity! * PBS is Christianity's "private broadcasting service"! * Annals 15.44 is a forgery! Heck, the entire Annals are a forgery! Yes, just forget what is said by dozens of classical and Tacitean scholars and textual critics; Burt KNOWS the real score! Wooo hooo! * No copies of Tacitus date earlier than the 15th century! Right on, Burt! You TELL those Tacitean scholars like Mendell how WRONG they are that that copy from the 11th century was actually in their imagination! * Whiston's translation of Tacitus is the ONLY one out there! The rest are just your imagination! * You have to be an "imbecile" to accept any of the Annals as historical fact! Ronald Syme was an imbecile! So are Mendell and all the rest! You go Burt! I always KNEW imbeciles ran Tacitean studies!
I can hardly wait to write my own book verifying Woof's findings! And I plan to do that just as soon as I go and hit myself on the head repeatedly with a giant wooden mallet!
A Critical Revelation for Every Religious Belief Feb 20, 2008
The Case Against "Jesus" is the most important book on Christian religion ever produced. It makes all other books on the subjects of Jesus and Christian religion irrelevant. The book proves, by irrefutable evidence, that "Jesus Christ" is nothing more than an invention of ancient Hebrew scribes and that the entire New Testament consists of fiction. The revelations in this book are shattering to the beliefs of Christians or anyone who has thought of the Jesus story as historical fact. But the truth had to come out sometime, and now that Burton Wolfe has proved that the story is fiction, all believers will have to face that fact. - Susan Loebl, Marketing Consultant
An important book Feb 19, 2008
Burton Wolfe's book doesn't just speculate on whether or not Jesus actually existed and whether or not the New Testament is fiction, it proves it by irrefutable evidence. This meticulously researched book is fascinating in it's content and qualifies as an IMPORTANT book that deserves a place on the bookself of anyone who is interested in religion, especially those whose common sense tells them much of the bible and Christianity in general is more mythical than real.
The Case Against Jesus Jan 10, 2008
Being raised as a strict Catholic, I often wondered why I should worry about burning in hell if I ever got hit and killed by a truck without doing 'confession' or even burning in purgatory for years if your friends or relatives don't pray for you after you die. Reading Burton Wolfe's latest book 'The Case Against Jesus' explained so much to free you from that fear that it is difficult to put the book down after the first few pages. The constant revisions and contradictions in the Bible proves that the Christian institutions are desperate to maintain their flock and reading the book helped me realize that.
