About the Book

This life of the historical Jesus is based on the diagnoses of three psychiatrists in the first decades of the 20th century. They agreed that Jesus's words and actions reflected those of a religious paranoic. These courageous rationalists were attacked by two Jesus apologists, Dr. Albert Schweitzer and Dr. Walter Bundy, a psychiatrist, who insulted his three colleagues as “amateurs.” Intimidated by the potential attacks of Christian apologists such as Schweitzer and Bundy, psychiatrists the world over silenced the topic of Jesus's insanity. For 100 years, not one psychiatrist has had the courage to inform Christians that they were worshiping a man who had suffered from insanity.

This biography of Jesus portrays the chronological development of Jesus's paranoic symptoms from the moment they were triggered in his baptism by John the Baptist until his megalomania induced him to make the fatal mistake of entering Jerusalem as the Messiah. Thanks to three psychiatrists, each one working independently, the pieces of the Jesus puzzle now form a plausible and authenticated portrait of the life of the historical Jesus.

Although his book was rejected by over 200 literary agents and publishers, the author has succeeded in penetrating the iron curtain of censorship imposed by the many Jesus apologists who dominate the publishing and psychiatric fields by self-publishing his book

This is, without a shadow of a doubt, one of the most provocative and, controversial books published about Jesus and Christianity in this decade.
