The Jesus Delusion Book Excerpt:

The Bible is the most overrated book in the world, and Jesus of Nazareth the most overrated person in world history. These are some of the propositions which the author, who has a doctorate in theology, formulates in his examination of the Christian religion. In a very readable and often humorous style the book asks whether the Bible really is such a good, ethically valuable book, as the Churches always claim, or whether the God of the Old Testament is not rather an irascible war god while the New Testament announces the destruction of all unbelievers at the end times: "He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned" (Mark 16: 16). The book also asks whether the Churches are right to invoke that Jesus of Nazareth whom they announce as the Son of God. After all, academic research has long established that the real Jesus was very different and had almost nothing in common with the Jesus of the Churches. Christianity has been driving through history without a driver's licence. This book is addressed both to believers who do not shy away from confronting uncomfortable facts, and to those people who have nothing to do with the Church and who have always suspected that something in Christianity is not quite right.

The Christian Delusion Book Excerpt:

In this anthology of recent criticisms aimed at the reasonableness of Christian belief, a former evangelical minister and apologist, author of the critically acclaimed Why I Became an Atheist, has assembled fifteen outstanding articles by leading skeptics, expanding on themes introduced in his first book. Central is a defense of his "outsider test of faith," arguing that believers should test their faith with the same skeptical standards they use to evaluate the other faiths they reject, as if they were outsiders. Experts in medicine, psychology, and anthropology join Loftus to show why, when this test is applied to Christianity, it becomes very difficult to rationally defend. Collectively, these articles reveal that popular Christian beliefs tend to rely on ignorance of the facts. Drawing together experts in diverse fields, including Hector Avalos, Richard Carrier, David Eller, and Robert Price, this book deals a powerful blow against Christian faith.

It s Only A Delusion If It Doesn t Work Book Excerpt:

I saw Christ during a near death experience (NDE) in January 1969 while buried beneath a pile of biomaterial, outguessing poisonous methane gas. I had multiple compound fractures and no air. To this day, I swear it being as real as you, me or anyone else. Yes, I saw the tunnel of light with Christ at the opposite end. The Christ I saw had long brunet hair—the one I knew from Sunday school and books. Now that I have actually studied the Bible, I know He almost certainty had short hair, like his peers, the other men in his culture. Check it out. First Corinthians 11:14 says, “Does not the very nature of things teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a disgrace to Him?” God Himself thought long hair on a man was an abomination. It's obvious that is a disgrace for a man to have long hair! The most common word to describe long effeminate hair is the very word Paul used in First Corinthians 11:14: “degrading” (atimia), the major reason for objecting to long hair. How do we explain all the pictures of Christ depicted with long hair? Is that delusional thinking at the mass level? Again, did the Holy Word mislead us poor ignorant Christians, or did we fill in the gap for God? I’m laying my money on God – long hair was abhorrent to Him. As such, His son arrived with short hair. Now if Christ was anything like today’s youth, he would have rejected long hair – it simply wasn’t in style. Is humankind’s vision of Jesus just a delusion? Is the phenomenon of UFOs but another case of MASS delusion? It has happened before and within the past one hundred years –“Invasion of Mars”, Orison Well’s Broadcast. Could be, but humankind has been reporting them through word, paintings, or hieroglyphics since 29,000BC. If one buys into that, but not into UFO’s, then one must conclude that the entire world, since the beginning of time, has BEEN A DELUSION.

Getting at Jesus Book Excerpt:

Portraying themselves as challenging blind religious dogma with evidence-led skepticism, the neo-atheist movement claims that the New Testament contains unreliable tales about a mythical figure who, far from being the resurrected Lord of life, may not even have lived. This comprehensive critique documents the falsehood of these neo-atheist claims, correcting their historical and philosophical mistakes to show how we can get at the truth about the historical Jesus.

The Dawkins Delusion Book Excerpt:

World-renowned scientist Richard Dawkins writes in The God Delusion: 'If this book works as I intend, religious readers who open it will be atheists when they put it down.' The volume has received wide coverage, fuelled much passionate debate and caused not a little confusion. Alister McGrath is ideally placed to evaluate Dawkins' ideas. Once an atheist himself, he gained a doctorate in molecular biophysics before going on to become a leading Christian theologian. He wonders how two people, who have reflected at length on substantially the same world, could possibly have come to such different conclusions about God. McGrath subjects Dawkins' critique of faith to rigorous scrutiny. This book will be warmly received by those looking for a reliable assessment of The God Delusion and the many questions it raises -- including, above all, the relevance of faith and the quest for meaning.

Age of the Gentiles and the White God Delusion Book Excerpt:

The book is a logical Bible study and in-depth examination of Race, Sex, Power, Politics and War. The Author addresses the false doctrine and propaganda that has been fronted for centuries, by Christianity and Judaism, as to their supremacy above other religions and races. He also examines the role these two religions have played in promoting these false doctrines, which literally contradict, the written laws of the Bible. The book further looks at Islam where the Author acknowledges the origin and foundation of its original teachings, as is likened by God's Commandments and as written in the Holy Bible and Holy Qur'an. The Author takes a scalpel to dissect race and religion to its core. The Author separates the gentile dogma of Christianity and Judaism and highlights their contradiction to the Laws of God. Lastly, he dwells on separation of races based on their individual religious philosophies, concluding in the introduction of Lucifer as a Chief Architect of Gentile religious doctrine and practices. Lucifer's mission is to maintain the delusion of the white God and its false power to rule over Black and Semite people. Quotes from Author: I am challenging the world's Christian religious believers, communities and the general masses to follow the true laws of God. They should stop falling prey to the False Luciferian Doctrine and the delusion of White God. I affirm to the world that, I am a true servant of God who is challenging all religious ministers to debate evidence and facts, referred to in this book through the lesson chapters, so that they may distinguish the truth from the lie. I challenge them to debate about the alleged religious authorities in reference to the Christian and Jewish faith, in order to determine, if truly, their religious practices is of the God of Heaven and Earth. I challenge all ministers to prove that they follow and believe in the commandments, Laws and Statues of God as written in the scriptures. I further challenge all of them to debate the true ethnology and race of God's chosen people; his first family being the black and Semite (Hebrews), who are identified by their skin pigmentation and coloration; and their true religion to be Abrahamic. This would also prove that True' Israelites are cousins to the Ishmaelite's. In addition, I challenge all ministers of Jewish Authority, to a debate, as to the true ethnology of True' Hebrews of the Land of Palestine and Canaan. It is worth noting that the true Hebrews were removed from the Holy land, and thereafter cursed by God and Scattered unto Gentile nations in all four corners of the earth. And shall remain there, until the second coming of Jesus; as was prophesied in his Revelation war against the Christian, Jewish Armies of Gog (Europe) and Magog (America, Israel), and as foretold in the book of Revelations. I challenge them to deny that it has been 2000 years of Christian Propaganda Crusade by the gentiles and gentile Jews, and Theologians, Philosophers and Historians, to hide the true identity of the true Israelites. Their mission has been to remove parts of, and alter the Holy Scriptures, thereby changing the Laws of God. Their intention is to make everyone follow Luciferian Doctrine. Because of this, God gave Revelation unto Jesus Christ, to bring forth the final Armageddon to all who changed His Laws. This led to his prophecy against the Christians (Nicolaitans) and Jewish doctrine (religion), which He hated, for they are the synagogue (disciples) of Satan.

The Genesis of the Bible Book Excerpt:

This book is about Christianity, Islam, Judaism, and how the Arabs and Europeans took these Afrikan Religious Belief Systems from ancient Egypt, North Afrika and used them during The Trans-Sahara Afrikan Slave Trade by the Arabs in the name of Allah, and followed by The Transatlantic Afrikan Slave Trade by the Europeans in the name of Jesus, to enslave the bodies, minds, and souls of the Afrikan Race. This book is about the “Jesus’ Deception” that has been passed on down through history by European historians, that is still being taught around the world today. This book takes a provocative intellectual, scholastic, historical, cultural, and sociological look at the Bible. This book identifies the names of the translators of the King James Bible of 1611 A. D., and when the chapters and verses in the Bible were created and who created them. The purpose of this book is to expose the historical, cultural, sociological, religious and theological lies of the Europeans and the Arabs. This book reveals the truth of the origination of The Bible, as “There Is No Religion Higher Than The Truth”. Join me in an intellectual odyssey through time. Here, I feel like a Lone Warrior standing before a mighty army. Come with me on this perilous pilgrimage as we travel through a parallel universe. I dedicate this book to my mother and father who gave me life. To the rest of my Native Afrikan family for supporting me and encouraging me on this publishing venture. To the Heavenly Father, without whom none of this would be possible. There are others I would also like to thank for being a part of helping me through this journey called Life, such as my professors at the Alabama State University where many a great scholars paths I have crossed. To my American family and friends in Mobile, Alabama who nurtured and taught me from childhood to adulthood. The many friends and colleagues I met in my travels all across America in my intellectual journey, and last but certainly not least, to my publisher for granting me the opportunity to speak to many all around the world in this forum. I am eternally indebted to you all-Thank you.

End Time Delusions Book Excerpt:

Will Christians vanish in a rapture? Will seven years of apocalyptic terror overtake those left behind? Will one future Mr. Diabolical—the antichrist—rise to control the world? Will he enter a rebuilt Jewish temple, claiming to be God? Will Earth’s nations attack Israel at Armageddon? Best-selling books like Left Behind and popular apocalyptic movies predict such things. Are they correct? No area of Christianity has been subject to more misguided interpretation than end time prophecy. Millions of Christians sense we are nearing Jesus Christ’s return. Yet when it comes to what the majority thinks will happen during Earth’s last days, and what the Bible actually says will occur, the difference is seismic. With clarity and biblical accuracy, End Time Delusions exposes massive errors now flooding through media and in much of today’s sensational prophecy writing. This book closely examines tightly meshed yet speculative theories about the rapture, seven-year tribulation, antichrist, and the modern Jewish state. This book is no novelty. Buttressed with solid teachings from many of Christianity’s most illustrious scholars, it lets the Bible speak for itself about the past, present, and future.

The Jesus Delusion Book Excerpt:

JUDAS, THE HERO At the heart of Jesus' delusion was his obsessive desire to offer himself as a sacrifice so his 'Father' would bring an end to the world with the Day of Judgement. He could not accomplish this alone. So he chose his favourite, the disciple he had given charge of the groups funds: Judas Iscariot, the man judged by history as the quintessential traitor to assist him. History is wrong. They worked hand in glove. A gnostic fragment discovered in 1972 and publicly revealed in 2005, The Gospel of Judas supports this view. But the real story of the partnership between Jesus and Judas is actually contained in the New Testament itself and is revealed with blinding clarity in historian and biographer, Robert Macklin's pioneering work, THE JESUS DELUSION. 'Robert Macklin digs into the texts to come up with a complex, indignant and physically unattractive human being who will disturb today's Fundamentalists almost as much as Jesus upset his fellow Rabbis.'

God is No Delusion Book Excerpt:

This story begins with the charismatic movement within the Christian church in the 1970s. Author Gwen Francis saw herself as only an observer at a Life in the Spirit seminar at an Anglican Church in New Zealand in 1975. Her subsequent experience of the Blessing of the Holy Spirit and various unasked-for gifts resulted in her admission to a psychiatric hospital. At the time, she was certain she was obeying God in all she said and did. In God is No Delusion, she explains the God she has known all of her life, and she discusses the force of evil that tries to separate us and help us destroy ourselves. Blending her life story and personal stories with her spiritual experiences, Francis offers evidence of a spiritual force she believes has communicated with humans and the living world since their beginning. Geared toward Christians who find it difficult to accept all the traditional teachings of their church and for the wandering flock who are looking for some spiritual guidance in a modern world, God is No Delusion shares both a message from God and a warning about the forces of evil.

Robinson Jeffers and the American Sublime Book Excerpt:

Robinson Jeffers and the American Sublime is the most comprehensive and most substantial critical work ever devoted to the major American poet Robinson Jeffers (1887–1962). Jeffers, the best known poet of California and the American West, particularly valorized the Big Sur region, making it his own as Frost did New England and Faulkner, Mississippi, and connecting it to the wider tradition of the American sublime in Emerson, Thoreau, and John Muir. The book also links Jeffers to a Puritan sublime in early American verse and explores his response to the Darwinian and Freudian revolutions and his engagement with modern astronomy. This discussion leads to a broad consideration of Jeffers' focus on the figure of Christ as emblematic of the human aspiration toward God—a God whom Jeffers defines not in Christian terms but in those of an older materialist pantheism and of modern science. The later sections of the book develop a conspectus of the democratic sublime that addresses American exceptionalism through the prism of Jeffers' Jeffersonian ethos. A final chapter places Jeffers' poetic thought in the larger cosmological perspective he sought in his late works.
