If you see the title and say "Oh? How can these two religions ever co-exist, let alone be co-worshiped?" Then buy the book. If you actually know anything about Christianity, Paganism, and have common sense you won't need to bother. It was interesting at times but a little long winded and obvious.

I figure, you know authors are good when they write a book on a topic that you don't care about and you read the book anyway because they wrote it and you trust they'll find a way to make the topic interesting somehow. I'm happy to say that my hopes were well-founded and that the book was much more thought-provoking than I expected.

The book's title is a bit misleading. Most of the book isn't about a single path called "ChristoPaganism," but talks about Paganism and Christianity as two separate r

This book is really uneven. Parts of it are AWESOME and parts are meh. It also needs better proofreading.

To my surprise, the parts I liked the best were the parts on Christianity. Let's face it, the Higginbothams aren't historians and I didn't buy a couple of their conclusions, but the information on which books of the Bible were written when, the historicity (or not) of Jesus, comparing Christianity to Mystery Cults of the classical era, and the rise of monotheism were the parts of the book th

The first part of this book is a well written study in blowing apart so many incorrect assumptions of dogmatic Christians. There was so much learned from this part that I am grateful for reading it.
The second part is a very heady psychological/philosophical section that I'm not sure I gleaned much from.
The third part saved the book as it is basically a transcription of several conversations with people of differing spiritual paths.
Educational and reaffirming, this book is invaluable to an eclect

This is an interesting book. After studying Christianity, I discovered ChristoPaganism and was immediately fascinated. This book ties together the history of both Christianity and Paganism and how the two religions wrap together and fit very well. It goes into how Christianity is based in Paganism and the roots of the religion. I would recommend this to any fellow religious study students and also to anyone of both faiths. There is a lot of hatred between Christians and Pagans today and I think ...more

Terrific section on the intersection of the Mystery cults and Christianity and good exploration of the mythic roots of Judeo-Christian texts. I suggest reading those, if you're interested, and skipping the rest. Better to read Ken Wilbur than read someone else's summary of his work.

It was a very good book and great to see how the two can be mixed together and made to work for those who do so.

Interesting to see the similarities some parts you couldn't put it down other parts your mind started going blah blah blah. Overall worth the read.
