Synopsis
Jesus Potter Harry Christ identifies the similarities between Jesus and Harry, to demonstrate that both J.K. Rowling's magical series and the biblical gospels are literary fiction
based ancient mythology and astrological symbolism.

"For those whose minds can ask questions freely without
the enforcement of dogma, Derek Murphy raises a genuine argument which
Christian apologists have no answers to besides merely repeating their dogmatic
convictions in the hope that re-asserting the dogma will confirm it as truth."
--John Thomas Didymus, Goddiscussion.com


"Whether or not one agrees with Murphy's ultimate position,
and whether or not one agrees with his arguments that Jesus was entirely
(rather than mostly) mythic, Jesus Potter Harry Christ is well worth wading
through, and wade through it one must, simply because of the sheer mass and
volume of evidence the author provides. Make this a book whose pages you
dog-ear for further reference and second readings." --Tim Callahan, Skeptic
magazine's religion editor and author of the books "Bible Prophecy" and "The
Secret Origins of the Bible"



"Murphy sifts through various mystery religions and myths
of a dying and resurrecting god, and their possible influence upon the Gospel
story. For once, it's done tastefully and without sensationalism. Maybe you've
read works by Freke, Doherty, and Harpur. Without trying to
foist a Gnostic version of Christianity on me, and without succumbing to
overzealous scholarship, Murphy gently yet forcefully introduces the strong
similarities between Christianity and other first-century religious
philosophies and mystery cults, concluding in the strong likelihood that Jesus
was a mythical savior." --Lee Harmon, author of "Revelation: The Way it
Happened"



"In the newly-released (and blasphemously-titled) Jesus
Potter Harry Christ, Derek Murphy makes the case that J. K. Rowling -- the
author of the Harry Potter series -- achieved her success by tapping into some
of the deepest and most ancient longings of the human heart. These same
longings, Murphy argues, compelled first-century pagans to construct what he
calls "the Jesus myth." Murphy points to similarities between the Gospel
accounts of Jesus' virgin birth, His passion and His return from the grave with
the myths of pagan idols like Isis, Sarapis, Horus and Apollo, Murphy hopes to
convince his readers that Jesus -- just like the gods of mythology -- is fiction.
In fact, he believes that Jesus is just an amalgam of history's best myths." --Chuck
Colson, Christian leader and cultural commentator
