"Hi - yes a bit, but more action/suspense rather than thoughtful and humourous. Mine will be on a very short list of "anti-apocalyptic" novels."

Need a name for a novel about the Antichrist saving humanity from God.

I'm working on an epic novel divided into a series - the working title is "The Bible, Part II". It's basically "Left Behind" but with the antichrist as the protagonist who fights back against God's invasions and finds a way to save humanity. However, while the content will eventually lead to a harsh criticism of faith (in the book, Christianity is a complex breeding system to produce meek and humble slaves for an alien race), I'd rather not show all my cards with such an outlandish…See More

This trend of individualism marked many important decisions in my life, from being an exchange student…

Did Jesus exist? Please help!

Posted on April 24, 2011 at 12:00pm 5 Comments

One of the main reasons I left seminary school was the problems with historical Jesus research. After reading books like "The Jesus Mysteries" and "The Jesus Puzzle" I began to do my own research.

After a decade of study I've just published my own book "Jesus Potter Harry Christ" which uses Harry to identify the mythic nature of the Bible and reassesses the history. The reason I wrote this book was to draw awareness to the fact that a strong case can be made for the fully mythical…
