Now, Jesus: Mything in Action presents the most compelling new findings in Jesus Myth theory and critically examines its controversial reception by biblical scholars, the extent and reliability of our sources for Jesus, and reveals the surprising history behind Jesus’ evolution. In this volume: Mything in Action, vol. II (chapters 13 – 18) discusses the changing Jesus from even before the earliest Christians, to Paul, to the Book of Hebrews, to the Gospels and beyond: the construction (and deconstruction) of the Gospels; how Jesus is presented in the rest of the New Testament; and examines the historical sources for Jesus outside of the Bible....

jesus mything in action vol ii the complete heretic s guide to western religion book 3 Reviews
Another amazing installment in this series. Putting all of this research from so many sources into one so well organized book is a god send.For anyone who is interested about Jesus in any way, it's a must read.
Very thorough well-researched and -writtenThis is a very will-researched and well-written book in the "Mything" trilogy. I'm looking forward to reading the third book. Fitzgerald's writing is inspiring me to read the New Testament thoroughly.
I am reviewing this set (2010 Nailed: Ten Christian Myths That Show Jesus Never Existed At All; 2017 The Complete Heretic's Guide to Western Religion Book 2: Jesus: Mything in Action Vol. 1-3) as one book, as the four volumes actually constitute one extended essay (with Nailed as the introductory chapter). I found Fitzgerald’s Mything works to be a masterpiece: a very complete overview of all the major issues with the theological theory that “Jesus of Nazareth” not only was “the Messiah” aka “the Christ,” but an actual historical individual. This set of works thoroughly addresses the problems with this view, and explores in detail the “Christ Myth Theory” that the historical person Jesus did not even exist in Palestine or anywhere. The fourth and final volume I was unsure about, as I found its subtitle a bit worrying: “The Gospel According to H.G. Wells.” However, this turned out to be my favorite volume. “Wells” certainly was the perfect cap to the entire series. It traces, in a very readable way, what is known of the first few centuries of Christianity, including some of the background Jewish, Greek, and Roman history which allowed for its development. After reading the earlier volumes (all of which were well researched and well put together), the final volume brings it all together and tries to explain why a cornucopia of loosely related Middle Eastern cults finally coalesced into what the world, after the 4th century, came to know as orthodox christianity. All told, these four volumes are a must read for anyone who takes seriously the history and origin of christianity and related religions – believer or not. I certainly hope that Fitzgerald is able to continue his Complete Heretic’s Guide series. His effort to put together this thorough guide is an important addition to the serious, academic examination of the origins and meaning of what became christianity.
