A new perspective
1 August 2015 | by ersbelSee all my reviews

I was raised with the idea that Christianity has a real base and it's not just a bunch of ideas derived from a primitive novel. Only to find out later that the first stories of the future novel were drawn at least a century after the death of the main guru, giving ample time to die for all the people that have known the people who have heard about the wonderful guru.

I was also told that Islam is somehow better. There was an initial guru. And his life is well documented. Well, the documentation is quite different from one sect to another and the holy text is made following the same priceless technique that the book of Mormon was made. But some places were certain. Or are they? Tom Holland has spent some time looking for the origins of these myths and things are not that simple. Or have happened in the assumed places.
