In The Refutation of Acharya's Christ Conspiracy, Mike Licona's rebuttal seems to be on the defense.My question to Mr Licona, why is your ministry, Risen Jesus, Incorporated ? Have you been inspired by our Creator? You refer to the Bible as if is fact, the Word of God. Why do we need all these Bible scholars to interpret Its message ? The Bible is a mockery of Creation. Why would the God of Love, Peace,and Joy be responsible for its existence?
Mike, your past learning must have taught you the wrong things simply because it has not made you happy. And on this basis alone, its value should be questioned.
If learning aims at change, and that is always its purpose,are you satisfied with the changes your learning has brought you? Dissatisfaction with learning outcomes must be a sign of learning failure since it means that you did not get what you want. The curriculum of the the Atonement is the opposite of the curriculum you have established for yourself, but so is its outcome. If the outcome of yours has made you unhappy, and if you want a different one a change in the curriculum is obviously necessary.
The bibliography of this book contains over 100 authors. Can you say this about the Bible?

This book received many good reviews! That said, has anyone else that read it even attempted to fact-check it, previous biases aside? Because I couldn't find a single needle of truth in this haystack :\. Good for fiction, although not the best source of any knowledge at all, unfortunately.

Acharya S. clearly made this book to sell based on its controversy. Much of what she says is historically just plain wrong. Take for example the "twins Horus and Set". Horus was the NEPHEW of Set! Osiris was Set's jealous brother who killed him and took over Egypt. Horus was the son of Osiris.
Also, Set was for a time characterized as the protector of Ra who fought off the snake Apep at night, meaning these two are completely seperate entities.
I came reading this book online here to find some sources quoted by Zeitgeist but the pages I need to trace the info are some of the few that are missing from the preview. Coincidence?
Nobody should buy this book. Its a trap! You should borrow it from the library and count how many sources are misquoted, exagerated or outdated beyond belief.
