David Fitzgerald's award-winning 2010 book, Nailed: Ten Christian Myths That Show Jesus Never Existed At All, pointed out the top 10 fatal flaws of Christianity's origin story.
Now, Jesus: Mything in Action presents the most compelling new findings in Jesus myth theory, critically examines its controversial reception by biblical scholars and the extent and reliability of our sources for Jesus, and reveals the surprising history behind Jesus' evolution. In this volume, Mything in Action (chapters 1-12) looks at the myths of Jesus mythicism: what it is and isn't and what biblical scholars are saying about it (and why); and examines our oldest "biographical" source for Jesus - the allegorical story we know as the Gospel of Mark.

Wonderful exploration of Christianity's sources

Where does Jesus: Mything in Action, Vol. I rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is a wonderful exploration of question of whether the legend of Christianity's Jesus began with an actual person on earth, or a mythical figure invented out of whole cloth and I had a brilliant time listening to it. It goes into just the right amount of depth to be comprehensive without being too complex or daunting.

What did you like best about this story?

The book is explanatory, entertaining and with just the right level of depth, with enough detail to feel like we aren't skating over important facts, nor too much to feel like it's getting bogged down.

Any additional comments?

If you want to explore the topic further I also strongly recommend the audiobook version of Richard Carrier's "On the Historicity of Jesus", though as a more academic work the latter isn't quite as approachable an introduction to the subject.

Fascinating deep dive

Fitzgerald lays out the case for mysticism in an accessible, entertaining manner. Yet he is includes the details and references. It's not a casual listen. You have to pay close attention, but that's not hard to do. It's compelling enough that you won't want to be distracted.

Jesus myth debunked

this book was excellent! the author does a great job at deconstructing the gospels of the New Testament and revealing the many MANY problems with the Christ myths.

this part 1 of a 3 part series. I was left wanting more!

the author reads the book the book and has a great blend between informative and entertaining. He leaves no stone unturned during his masterful deconstruction. I enjoyed it and I highly recommend it to those who care about putting facts before beliefs.
