Lon Milo DuQuette’s next book has been announced. Accidental Christ — Heretical Visions of the Life of Jesus is scheduled to be published this coming late December/early January. Based on a short e-book he did some years ago, Accidental Christ is a novel about what he believes was the real story behind the life of Jesus. To quote Lon from the publisher’s press release:

“What we’re learning about life in first century Palestine is throwing light on many obscurities in the Gospel narratives, and is offering many interesting and provocative alternatives to how those texts can now be more objectively interpreted.”

“When you get right down to it, nobody owns Jesus. His name and character aren’t trademarked; the words attributed to him aren’t copyrighted. Whether or not his historical existence will ever be confirmed, he’s become a classic mythological figure who, for good or ill, has taken up permanent residence in the psyche of Western Civilization. I have as much right as the next person to interpret the Gospels.”

“Considering Christendom’s role in the bloody conflicts of the last two-thousand years, and the history behind the hatred that fuels today’s Middle East conflicts, it might be time for twenty-first century adults to take a new look at the greatest story ever told. So I wrote one.”
