Kelsey Graves' groundbreaking treatise, arguing against the existence of Jesus Christ with the citation of fifteen precedents with striking similarities, remains popular and controversial to this day. Published in 1875, Graves' thesis was among the most divisive of its time. Already rocked by the newly-published theory of evolutionary science, which directly contradicted the Biblical telling of man's creation, the Christian church found itself further assailed by skeptics who doubted the existence of Christ. Kelsey Graves authored the most comprehensive criticism of the time, compiling from existing chronicles this thesis: that the genesis of Christianity existed before Christ himself. The central notion put forth in this book is that there were a total of sixteen crucified individuals from a variety of different ancient belief systems, all of whom provided a model for Jesus Christ.

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1895 edition. Excerpt: ... CHAPTER III. THE BEGINNING. HE sacred thing which is now called the times, nor indeed was it absent from the beginning of the human race." Let us never forget this pregnant admission of one of the greatest of the Fathers, which by some happy chance has been allowed to come down to us. For this confession of St. Augustine is an affirmation in plain and unmistakable terms by one who ought to have known, that what was in his time called the Christian Religion, existed long before the life, death, and alleged resurrection of Jesus, as preached by Paul in connection therewith, gave it the new name of Christian, and caused the followers of Paul at his head quarters at Antioch to be called Christians; a Christian Religion existed in ancient name subsequently given to his followers elsewhere. Nor was St. Augustine the only famous Father who is known to have admitted that what was called the Christian Religion was no new thing. Even in the works of the great Ecclesiastical Historian, Eusebius, Bishop of Caesarea, we come across a passage which states that--"What is called the Christian Religion is neither new nor strange, but--if it be lawful to testify as to the truth--was known to the ancients."1 This, also, makes it plain that the Christian Religion was not the new thing it was supposed to be; that the officials of the Christian Church kept this a secret from the rank and file; and that what was and is known as Christianity existed ages before it was given that title, or was centred round the name and fame of Jesus the Nazarene by Paul of Tarsus and his followers. In fact, judging from the admissions of St. Augustine, Eusebius, and other early Christian writers, what is called Christianity may under some name or other have existed as far back...

Excerpt from Our Sun-God, or Christianity Before Christ: A Demonstration That, as the Fathers Admitted, Our Religion Existed Before Our Era, and Even in Pre-Historic Times AS a matter of fact, our faith as Christians, despite the noble efforts of individuals, is, as a whole, losing ground. Not only has Christianity, with all its advantages, failed, even in eighteen centuries, to secure even the nominal suffrages Of one half - much less of the whole - of human kind, but the proportion which those who honestly believe in its distinguishing dogmas bear to the remainder of our race, is undoubtedly decreasing.
