Dr. Robert Price- Night of the Living Savior: Neglected Aspects of the Resurrection Debate, Excerpts

Greetings everyone! We have something special for you in addition to a request for help.
Dr. Robert Price's book, Night of the Living Savior: Neglected Aspects of the Resurrection Debate, is, just like the subtitle suggests, an exposition of some of the issues surrounding the historicity of the resurrection of Jesus that often get missed. The audiobook is being edited for publication right now but we're glad to be able to feature some excerpts of the book beginning with one from the fifth chapter titled "The Ruin of Rationalism- Dying and Rising Gods". These excerpts are full enough that no additional commentary need be offered for the sake of understanding. The point that he wishes to make is "Why on earth grant special consideration to the [dying and rising god] case of Jesus, just because it is the one we grew up believing?" (p. 175)
