Amazon.com book description:

"Mark Fulton’s book 'Get over Christianity by Understanding it' questions the origins of Christianity through an exploration of who the Biblical players were, and the authors' motives. The book reveals many obscure facts, and exposes a large number of fictions for what they are. The book's conclusions are based on assessments of primary sources such as the Bible itself, as well as the opinions of numerous respected historians, and are the product of many years of exhaustive investigation.

The book concludes that the Old Testament is largely fabricated, is profoundly immoral, and has been the primary cause of much human suffering and ideological baggage.

Fulton thinks that Jesus may have existed; yet that the man described in the Gospels is not a true depiction. He thinks Jesus was actually a fundamentalist Jewish zealot, and not a Christian, and that Jesus had no delusions that he was the Son of God, and no wish to die for humanity’s sins. Instead, Fulton has Jesus as a hopeful Jewish messiah who tried to start a war with the Roman garrison in Jerusalem, yet was outmanoeuvred and crucified before his ambitions had a chance to come to fruition.

You might consider getting a Kindle ebook reader app for your PC, Mac computer, Ipad, etc.:

Amazon.com has many millions of movies, TV shows, songs, magazines, books, and audiobooks available for download into their Kindle eBook reader or Kindle app. As of 2015-MAY, stand-alone readers cost from $79 and up. Versons of the Kindle app are available for Ipads, PC's, Mac computers, etc.

Benefits to the Kindle:

  • Amazon provides FREE reader apps that you can dowload to your PC, tablet, and many other devices.

  • Various models of Kindles can store from 1,000 to 3,500 books and are more more portable than lugging thousands of books with you.

  • Ebooks can save a lot of money, because eBook versions generally cost significantly less than print versions.

  • Amazon makes a suprisingly large number of books available at no cost. Over a million cost $4.99 or less.

  • Delivery of the books over the Internet is free and almost instantaneous.

  • You don't need to build or expand bookshelves.

  • You don't need to dust off Kindle copies of books.

  • Think of all the trees that would be saved if more people abandoned printed copies.

  • They have a built-in dictionary.

  • They are very light and thinner than a pencil.

  • Many books can be lent to other Kindle or Kindle app users.

  • Battery life if you use a kindle for 30 minutes a day is 4 weeks.

However, beware that some publishers take advantage of buyers, and charge more for the digital versions than for the print versions. We have a policy of not buying such copies.

Ebooks have a search function. You can select passages from books and store them in a text file for use by an editor program on a PC or Mac. They have a built-in dictionary to find the meanings of words.
