  • The Gnostic Gospels, by Prof. Elaine Pagels. The author is an eminent scholar of religion at Princeton. She shows that many of the early Christians did not believe in the divinity of Jesus. Most of their books were burned. Written after Pagels received a MacArthur Prize.
  • Adam, Eve, and the Serpent, by Prof. Elaine Pagels. The early Gnostic Christians (probably including Mary Magdalene and the Apostle Thomas) believed that the eating of the apple in the Garden of Eden was the greatest triumph of mankind!
  • The Life of Jesus by Ernest Renan. A classic history written in 1863, scholarly but highly controversial, since Renan (even though he remained a devout Christian) argued that the resurrection of Lazarus was purposely faked by Jesus.
  • Rescuing the Bible from Fundamentalism, by Episcopical Bishop Reverend Spong. Spong considers Jesus to be his "personal Savior." Yet he does not believe that Jesus survived the resurrection. It doesn't matter to him.
