In his new book The Christianity Myth, K. A. G. Thackerey examines what little we know about first-century Christianity. He concludes that there are two ways of explaining how Christianity started. One way is the traditional way, with divine intervention, and the other way is Thackerey’s way, without divine intervention. Thackerey’s way is both novel and intriguing, and his very provocative ideas are destined to ruffle more than just a few feathers. The Christianity Myth is a very controversial, eye-opening expose that challenges Christianity’s very essence, and both Christians and non-Christians alike will find it a riveting read.
Meet the Author
K.A.G THACKEREY was born of working-class parents in 1941. He had a good all-round education at a local grammar school and graduated with a chemistry degree in the 1960s. He is now enjoying retirement, having spent most of his working life in research and development. Married with three sons, he now lives a very quiet and unremarkable life in semidetached suburbia. Thackerey likes taking long country walks, and he invariably rewards himself en route with a good pub lunch. From time to time, he relishes the freedom to think the unthinkable. His dislikes include watching sport, anchovies, playing sport, aubergines, and talking about sports. He thinks the modern generation has unrealistically high expectations, and he believes that these have been deliberately created by unscrupulous advertising, funded by unscrupulous large businesses. If Thackerey had to choose two words to describe himself, he would choose “skeptical pessimist”. For him, the glass has always been half-empty rather than half-full, but he realistically accepts that half-empty is far better than empty.
