User reviews about this book
Not as advertised
Welcome to a book that has nothing to do with the title. With modern fiction we realize this is a selling technique. But you came here for myth and magic and it seemed interesting. Well dear reader let me tell you this is not the journey for you to take. The only mention of magic is to slander those who believe in the magical ways, just as the author did to philosophers and organized religion before it. Is there any myth in this book? Not in the traditional sense, not really any unless you just say the story of Jesus is a myth, which is an idea the author doesn’t even seem committed too.
This is a rant dressed in a suit. It desperately wants to be a though provoking piece but is really just a ramble that has been discussed by many people over time. It presents itself as an angry atheist trying to demean the church while acknowledging they believe in the Jesus story. I guess that’s not an atheist. I guess I’m as confused as the terrible crusade this author just went on.
The author is in dire need of taking a few philosophy courses. This book was absolute drivel.
If you want to read someone write an unsophisticated, rambling, rant against the Christian church, this book is for you. If you're curious about myth and/or magic, you'll get more from reading a cereal box.
1 star is too high a mark.
Clear and concise
Interesting and thought provoking.
