    As a Christian who doesn’t look to Jesus as a divine fire insurance talisman, I’m fine with him being mythological or a Buddhist missionary; his teachings, or the teachings attributed to him, haven’t changed. My devotion to the “genuine precepts” remains.

    “To the corruptions of Christianity I am indeed opposed; but not to the genuine precepts of Jesus himself. I am a Christian, in the only sense he wished any one to be; sincerely attached to his doctrines, in preference to all others; ascribing to himself every human excellence; & believing he never claimed any other.” ~Thomas Jefferson, letter to Benjamin Rush, May 21, 1803

      ‘divine fire insurance talisman’ – classic :-)

    A hundred dollars a copy? He obviously doesn’t want many people to read it then.

    P.S. Though in Canada it’s “only” CAN$86.53:

    Maurice has done his research and has proven the existence of Steve Carr.

    I have started reading it. Regrettably, I have to say that Casey is not a very good writer.

      Sorry to hear that you feel that way. When I read an earlier draft of the manuscript, I found him to be quite entertainingly sarcastic. Perhaps the publisher required him to tone it down, and it lost something in the process? If so, that’s a pity. Casey’s health has also been very poor lately, and that may have affected the editing process. I’ve always found him very readable in his past works, even when I disagreed with him completely.

        I actually think it could have done with some more toning down.The sarcasm did not strike me as entertaining, it made Caisey sound bitter and dismissive. And the book could have been better organized.
