Christianity before Christ
Though extremely dated and written without much documentation, this book by Kersey Graves elucidates the ties of Christianity to most other religions. It is quite easy to
follow up on Mr Graves' research with more modern research by other scholars. Many points to ponder. Very logical and well-thought.
