Christianity's Lies, Laws, and Legacy
by Michael Paulkovich
Foreword by Robert M. Price
Published by American Atheist Press, Cranford, NJ.
After reading Beyond the Crusades and asked to write a blurb:
"I have decided not to because Paulkovich's animosity towards religion is even more extreme than my reputation." - Richard Dawkins, author of The God Delusion,
The Selfish Gene, The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution and others.
"I can think of no better compliment, thank you Professor Dawkins." - Michael Paulkovich
"...is not Michael Paulkovich exactly like Jesus in Mark 7, mercilessly pointing out how the pious have papered over the actual teaching of the Bible, substituting their own theological inventions?" - Robert M. Price, author of Deconstructing Jesus,
The Christ-Myth Theory and Its Problems, The Pre-Nicene New Testament: Fifty-four Formative Texts and others.
"There is enough irony in this catalog of horrors to stoke a Bessemer Converter for years. If only ten percent of these pages were true, it would be a devastating indictment of Christianity. But all of it is historical fact and helps us to understand why Voltaire's motto was Écrasez l'Infâme!"
- Frank R. Zindler, author of Through Atheist Eyes: Scenes From a World That Won't Reason,
The Jesus the Jews Never Knew and others.
"Michael Paulkovich's new book, though pretty heavy going for those with only a casual interest in the subject,
is a fetching read for the serious student or for anybody willing to make the effort to become one." - Donald R. Burleson, author of over 20 books and hundreds of articles.
[On the first edition of the book:]
“Drop everything you are doing and order Michael Paulkovich’s No Meek Messiah,
a book which treats the Christian biblical literature, the Bible among them, as a well
documented set of lies, laws and a despicable legacy of non-events bloodied with
unspeakable cruelty. Even Jesus Christ may not have existed nor was he crucified
if he existed. Much of the accounts in the Bible (all versions) never took place and
the number of contradictions they contain deploy confused messages they purports
to convey. It will take perhaps another hundred years before the full truth of the
Christian era emerges as the dominant early history of the development of what
we call Civilization. This book is a great step in that rational direction.” - Dr. Elie A. Shneour, author of Life Beyond the Earth, The Malnourished Mind and others.
"Recent skeptics such as Richard Dawkins, the late Christopher Hitchens, Michael Paulkovich, and others have written powerful book-length critiques of religion." - Reynold Spector, "The Evolution of Three Current Religions," American Rationalist, March 2014.
