Earliest temples dates only from 150 AD. Earliest Sanskrit document dates only from 150 AD. Vedic gods disappeared new concept of Iswara came soon after the first century AD. In fact Hinduism appeared Kerala only after 6th C AD. This revised edition attempts to explain the Indian terms and history so that the book may be understood by non-Indian and non-Hindu readers.

A joke of a book. Type up this and that for a thousand pages and quote from friendly sources and presto you have a serious theory.
Actually hinduism emerged from Arizona, see all those cute apache indians on wonderful horses. And india is a golden land. So infact hinduism started with MacKenna's gold.
And as conclusive proof, apache indians are all dark skinned like the hindus. ha ha ha.
And Gregory Peck was the first hindu prophet.
ha ha ha.
Allah be praised.
when saying something different than the real, it gets publicity. Looks like the author followed the same cheap techniques. Let him first visit India and see the shrines and temples which were built before 2500 years. And for sure, he would feel sorry for writing such a book.
