Judeo-Christian Origins at California State University Long Beach
and Visiting Senior Member of Linacre College, Oxford. He holds a
B.A. from Cornell University in Philosophy and Engineering Physics

Endowment for the Humanities Fellow-in-Residence at the Albright
Institute of Archaeological Research in Jerusalem, where the Dead
Sea Scrolls were first examined.)
"D.M. Murdock, aka "Acharya S," has written a really fine
introduction to the problem of the Historical Jesus. She couches
everything in the most basic terms, comprehensible to the layman,
and lays out the problem and all the issues in a both really
readable and digestible form.
Her charts are insightful and extremely useful and presented in such
a way as to make things immediately plausible to the general reader.
I can recommend her work whole-heartedly for anyone on a world-wide
basis who really wants to know what is at stake in approaching and
coming to terms with the real person behind the literary image
provided by those who created the story of 'Jesus.'"

general, the solar religion cannot be ignored but must be
factored in at nearly every turn."
