The Making of the Christian Myth Commencing in mid February 2004, SBS TV (Australia) will run a twopart documentary based on this title. In this groundbreaking and controversial book, Burton Mack brilliantly exposes how the Gospels are fictional mythologies created by different communities for various purposes and are only distantly related to the actual historical Jesus. Mack's innovative scholarship which boldly challenges traditional Christian understanding' will change the way you approach the New Testament and think about how Christianity arose.
