What if for thousands of years before Christianity Pagans had also worshipped a Son of God?
What if this Pagan saviour was also born of a virgin on the 25th of December before three shepherds, turned water into wine, died and resurrected at Easter, and offered this body and blood as a Holy Communion?
What if these Pagan myths had been rewritten as the gospel of Jesus Christ?
What if there were absolutely no evidence for the existence of an historical Jesus?
What if the earliest Christians knew that the Jesus story was a myth?
What if the truth has been kept from us by the greatest cover-up in history?
Drawing on the cutting edge of modern scholarship, this astonnishing book will change everything you ever thought you knew about Christianity.

Why were the secret teachings of the original Christians brutally suppressed by the Roman Church?
What if the Old Testament is a work of fiction, Jesus never existed and Muhammad was a mystical mobster?
What if the Bible and Qur’an are works of political propaganda created by Taliban-like fundamentalists to justify the sort of religious violence we are witnessing in the world today?
What if there is a big idea which could free us from the us-versus-them world created by religion and make it possible for us to truly love our neighbours, and indeed our enemies, as our Self?
What if it is possible to awaken to a profound state of oneness and love, which the Gnostic Christians symbolised by the enigmatic figure of the laughing Jesus?
At last the long awaited sequel to the Bible has arrived. Gnostic scholars Freke and Gandy present a post-modern gospel for the 21st century, which is a satirical parable about the journey to self-knowledge.
Jesus is back, but this time with a zany sense of humour, and he wants to set the record straight. He wants to prove that Freke and Gandy’s controversial theories about the origins of Christianity are right, so he sets out to convince his disciples that he’s really not an historical figure, but rather a character in an allegorical myth, which encodes deep Gnostic teachings.
Jesus explains he’s a character in a story who exists in the mind of the author; and this is important because the deep message Jesus has returned to reveal is that the reader doesn’t really exists either. Life is like a story and we all exist as characters in the mind of the Author of All.
Freke and Gandy’s Gospel of the Second Coming belongs to exactly the same species as the Gnostic Gospels of Nag Hammadi. Like them, it is a fictive dialogue presenting its authors’ best insights as if Jesus had said them. Okay, it’s a lot funnier than the Nag Hammadi books, but I’ve always thought satire is the true prophecy anyway. Read it if you dare!

So much fun I can’t wait for the Third Coming.
I want to see a copy in every hotel room.
This inspiring book offers an essential digest of the Greco-Egyptian writings attributed to the legendary sage-god Hermes Trismegistus, who was venerated as a great teacher in the ancient world and was rediscovered by the finest minds of the Renaissance.
These works of Egyptian and Greek esoteric philosophy and have influenced many of the greatest minds in history such as Blake, Newton, Milton, Shelley, Shakespeare, Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, and Jung. The Hermetica is a marvelous volume for anyone interested in understanding the West’s intellectual roots in mystical thought.
The wisdom of the mystics contained within this inspiring little book is the spiritual essence of Christianity. The mystics teach that the very purpose of human life is to know God and that if we turn toward God we will find that he has been waiting for us all along.
The ancient Pagan philosophers were charismatic sages who taught a perennial wisdom which is as inspiring today as it was to the ancients. 'Know Your Self' is their essential challenge, from which springs their profound teachings contained within this little book.
