Been reading this book this week. You can get it free for Kindle on Amazon. Funny thing is it was written in 1909 but for me it really stands up and is very easy to follow….Although I have read a lot of older books so I am kind of used to the little language differences. His credentials are impeccable and he un-assumedly shows some of the obvious contradictions in the holy books and the actions of the Jews, Christians and Muslims which are really just different sects of the same religion. And its FREE….



Here is his wiki entry

Mangasar Magurditch Mangasarian (December 29, 1859–June 26, 1943) was an American rationalist and secularist of Armenian descent.

Born in Mashger (now within Turkey) in the Ottoman Empire, he attended Robert College in Constantinople, and was ordained as minister in Marsovan in 1878. In about 1880 he enrolled at Princeton University. He was pastor at a Presbyterian church in Philadelphia from 1882 to 1885, when he resigned, becoming an independent preacher and a lecturer on "independent religion" in New York. In 1892 he became leader of the Ethical Culture Society of Chicago, a group established by Felix Adler. In 1900 he organized the Independent Religious Society of Chicago, a rationalist group, of which he remained pastor until 1925. He retired to Piedmont, California, where he lived for the rest of his life.[1]

During his life Mangasarian wrote a number of books. His most popular, including The Truth About Jesus — Is He a Myth? (1909) and The Bible Unveiled (1911), deal with the evidence against the existence of an historical Jesus. He also wrote hundreds of essays and lectures on questions of the times. His books and essays were translated into French, German, Spanish, and other foreign languages. The general subject of his writing was religious criticism and the philosophy of religion.

Mangasarian considered himself a Rationalist or a Secularist not an Atheist, since he considered atheism a non-verifiable belief system.
