Sorry! No International Orders at this time! U.S. only!


I live in Italy, so this means that I still need to wait?

Not exactly - it means that Acharya is not able to take International Orders through her website right now due to crazy surcharges & shipping etc to other countries from the US - however, you can order it from a local book store or online stores such as Barnes & Noble or Amazon or Borders etc when the book is up at those online stores. You can contact them & ask them to get the book up online asap. You can also contact your local book store & press the store to hurry up & carry it.

International orders -

Hello! I haven't posted here in a while. I just bought Christ in Egypt and am reading it. It's really fascinating and I'm learning a lot about Egyptian religion. I just finished the chapter about polytheism and monotheism.

Hey, I just saw this fantastic review of "Christ in Egypt" posted at Amazon. Very well done! Be sure to vote on it to keep it at the top! And I suppose it can be passed around or shared however you wish. I just thought it was a superb review that many people might appreciate:

Quote:
"Studying "Christ in Egypt" (CIE) has enabled me to finally understand the Egyptian religion, Christianity, Gnosticism and their roots based in astrotheology or natural phenomena, i.e., the sun, moon, planets, stars, constellations etc. Now, it all makes sense.

CIE is very well written with Acharya's lovely style that I've come to appreciate. It's very scholarly, yet a fascinating read. Certain topics require an indepth analysis which is performed wonderfully throughout the book. Every reference and source is cited meticulously - cross-referencing primary sources 4, 5 and 6 different ways with credentialed scholars in their field of expertise across several languages, including a variety of translations of the ancient texts - WOW!

I found page 12 detailing the "Mythicist Position" outstanding & helpful, taking us far beyond the endless theist vs. atheist debate. CIE provides primary sources such as Horus being born on the winter solstice, Isis referring to herself as the great virgin, and Osiris considered the Christ and many more.

Murdock addresses counter arguments & criticisms throughout the book. She exposes biases and blatant censorship. Until the critics, whether theist or atheist, have studied this book, their opinion is worthless. Good luck to them.

CIE takes this very contentious topic to a whole new level that has the potential to change Egyptology & comparative religion as we know it. She explains the academic gap between theologians and historians. Many universities began as religious divinity schools Harvard, Yale, Princeton - CIE page 505. We need an Astrotheology Department at our universities to fill this monumental void! I wish I'd had Acharya's work available to me as a child.

I originally sought to debunk Acharya's work, but actually studying the massive amount of evidence she provides forced me to reconsider my beliefs. I realize now that I'm far better off for it. I apologize to Acharya for buying into all the lies about her work on the net. CIE is her best work to date and is the perfect response to the anti-Zeitgeist part 1/anti-Acharya cult nonsense.

I'd love to see her work on National Geographic, Discovery and the History Channels and a documentary DVD, as the 100 million Zeitgeist views demonstrate people are starving for this information. Acharya S should be on shows like Oprah, Bill Maher, Daily show and Colbert Report etc.

Acharya/Murdock deserves an award for her hard work and courage. She is the Galileo of our day!"


:wink:

When I finish it, I'll hopefully be able to write a review. With all I have going on, I feel like I barely get time to read. :(
