This wonderful book researches different mythologies of the sun from the ancient Sumeria till the Christianity. The author claims that most of holidays connected with the sun in Christianity originated as myths in ancient cultures. It explains why so many religions before Christianity had the same sun myths and different sun gods for representation of them. The author is convinced that Christianity with its appearance also borrowed various facts from the sun myth story.This process was quite long and sometimes even painful. The way Sarah Elizabeth Titcomb depicts the first sun myths is really fascinating. She is not claiming that Jesus himself was a complete myth but she insists that the certain mythologies made their contribution to His images, although there are no direct proof to it. Titcomb, though, does a wonderful job when finding and applying precious evidence to determine this.
