Ignore the pettyfogging or otherwise stultified reviews from flabbergasted 'Literalists' below. This book lays a phenomenal foundation for the hypothesis that most religions are indeed Astrologically conceived. Obviously, let this book be a guide, but also read for yourselves Sumerian, Babylonian, Egyptian, Vedic, Christian, Norse, Mithraic, etc, MYTHS for themselves to find the apodictic correlations. Indeed one could nitpick with Acharya regarding her use of tertiary references, but alas, she died a few years ago.
Subsequently, one can indeed find much of the actual 'source' material from the overly scholarly reference book 'Bible Myths and Parallels', which indeed correlates the aforementioned primitive materials to their modern juxtaposition. The onus is on you alone, literalists are bumbling bafoons searching for schoolyard answers to a bigger question. If you live your life like a walking twitter post, don't bother with this or other books of its nature.

I agree- I do not think she sourced her facts from Indian scholars. I think she sought so called scholars that could justify her need to cross stitch religions as one big myth. She clearly hasn't read Srimad Bhagavatam, Ciatanya Amrita Veda, or the Bhagavad-Gita "As It Is". I didn't find the book helpful at all.

What I would like to ask the author is if she intends to answer the request of the website kingdavid8.com, asking for her original source materials (according to the author of this website, Acharya S has not responded). If original source materials can't be provided, then her claims aren't much more than speculation or leaps to conclusion. Also, I'm wondering if she has submitted her work for a peer-review, and if so, when/where? And if not, why not?

another good read. even if is to just get people talking about what is being push on us by mainstream (religion). i enjoyed reading this book. and i also took the time to cross examine is facts and found most of them to be quite accurate. so if anything you get from this book, you'll get a broader view of what is being preached by religious leaders.

I'm afraid that, the author is unaware of most of the facts about the Krishna. She is indeed taking the references from the works of some non-Indian scholars. I highly doubt the total genuineness of the facts that those non-Indian scholars came to conclusions regarding the Indian history and mythology. There are two things related to our past, one history and other mythology. This is applicable to every cults or religions in the world. Whatever may be the intention of the author, she fails to tell the truth transparently. The story of Krishna, whether he was a man or god himself, whether he existed or not, is a long debate in India. But I don’t understand the connection between Jesus Christ and Krishna. One common thing between them is both are subject of debate and worshipped as god by millions of people, but the life of both has lot of difference. Beginning from the birth (the circumstances), growing up as a charismatic leader who inspired millions and preached the ‘dharma’ and the death or demise. The author doesn’t make it clear that whether it is mythology or history that she is intended to say. I can’t debate on every misconception that the author has mentioned in the book as it takes lot of time to clarify. Certainly I need to know that whether the author of this book have visited India or not. If not I invite her to come to India and spend some time here to do more research on the book written by her.
