Anybody else read it?

Carrie Bailey It seems that the negative reviews from "true" Christians about this interesting book about Jesus have increased in number in the past four years. Like much in America since 2015, everybody wants a fight. Add examining Jesus.
Josephine (Jo) This is sad and it seems to be the theme of several books I have come across over recent months. It seem to be the fashion at the moment to try to belittle the beliefs of Christians. Nothing new there I suppose! The only good thing is that the Church of Christ has always faced this sort of hatred and rather than being brought down by it. it continues to flourish.
Mark Ortiz-Carrasco While his book makes for a wonderful read with Chilton being a great storyteller, his obsession against the virgin birth is saturated throughout his tome. He paints Jesus as a bastard child of a Roman Centurion who raped Mary or was Joseph’s from having slept with Mary soon after they had met.
Chilton regales to us a story of how Jesus’ life and ministry are affected by being a mamzer, an outcast to society, being ostracized and the object of stigmatism. Chilton bestows onto Jesus the mask of being a lazy, illiterate, drunkard and relies too much on his theories rather than his research. Ultimately, he turns Jesus into a bitter dreamer who fails in his dream of reformation of the Temple.
During the course of Chilton's work, he readily admits to fact that the only real reason for his belief is due to the fact that he cannot explain Jesus’ resurrection. He thereby leaves Jesus’ resurrection to a spiritual resurrection only. He turns Jesus into an angel.
I have serious reservations to any "priest", Episcopalian or otherwise, that did not believe in the Virgin birth or the bodily resurrection of Jesus. For most of Christianity, these two events are pillar of the faith issues.
