In Defense of the Christ: Why Jesus Would Disown Christianity is the story of the author's lonely climb up the spiritual mountain. It tells of his long, desperate ascent and of the magnificent enlightening that awaited him at the summit, the fruit of which is in this book. The book articulates the entire spiritual process, from Spirit-Baptism through Nirvana, and then critiques both Protestant Christianity and Roman Catholicism as spiritual vehicles, through the ancient eye of a mystic. It speaks of religious fear, sexual ethics, spiritual awakenings and the confusing variety of religious and spiritual offerings. By illuminating universal spiritual principles it crosses all denominational lines. It examines what Protestant and Catholic theologians and exegetes have learned about the real Christ from the latest available historical data. And it concludes that modern Christianity has strayed far from the theology of Christ and incorrectly characterized both Christ and his mission. It is nothing short of a spiritual masterpiece!
