The Masks Of Christ

The Masks Of Christ

The Masks Of Christ

From the gnostic gospels to the Nativity, religious mythology immortalized Jesus -- his personality, his actions, his words -- but what if they didn't tell the truth? Although an entire religion is based on his teachings, Jesus himself did not record any written accounts of his life or faith. He taught his followers orally, and our only sources about what Jesus actually said and believed, the Gospels, were written long after his lifetime. But the Gospel authors had their own agendas to promote and most certainly altered -- even distorted -- their leader's message. In The Masks of Christ, bestselling authors Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince peel away layers of mythology, canonical revisions, Church propaganda, and censorship in order to reveal who Christ really was -- and discover his true message to the followers of Christianity. Stripping away centuries of misinformation, Picknett and Prince dispel religious myths, unearth historical truths, and uncover the real stories behind some of the Bible's most famous tales -- including how Christ's long-hidden relationships with John the Baptist and Mary Magdalene shaped his beliefs and religious mission. Drawing on objective research, Picknett and Prince present the living, breathing Jesus and provide a context for Jesus' teachings in the time and society in which he lived -- and, most important, guidance on what the life and lessons of Jesus Christ mean to everyone today.

The Masks Of Christ

The Masks Of Christ

This book is not intended as an attack on Christianity of the Christ of faith, but is an assessment of all the historical evidence about Jesus Christ. Although there is a huge literature on the subject - theological, historical, mythical, New Age and speculative - almost all of it is aimed at a niche market. The Masks of Christ is very different, being a mainstream book aimed at everyone. For the first time, all the various theories and facts about Jesus are considered between the covers of one accessible book. As the phenomenal sales of The Da Vinci Code continue to fuel a growing global appetite for questioning the old certainities and assumptions about Christianity and what it says about its founder, never has there been a more perfect time to launch The Masks of Christ.

Beyond The Masquerade

Beyond The Masquerade

Many Christian women today are wearing masks. From an early age, we are taught that to be valuable we need to do more, to be more. To feel worthy, we learn to hide behind the masks of our accomplishments, physical appearance, intelligence, education, relationships—even our work in the church. But those masks separate us from God, from other people, and from our true selves. Thankfully, there is hope. We can remove our masks and trust Christ to see us as we really are . . . but it takes humility. To examine our hearts, motives, and past experiences requires honesty and confession. But beyond the masquerade, Christ can heal and transform our lives, freeing us from bondage.

Pile Of Masks

Pile Of Masks

HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED why hypocrisy is so prevalent in the church? Many people have rejected the Christian faith due to the fact that they see nothing different in the lives of those who profess Christ and the rest of the world. The church is filled with the same issues that they face such as high divorce rates, drug and alcohol abuse, relational conflict, sexual immorality, fear of the future and an obsession with the things of this world. Is there any hope for a church culture that has grown lukewarm in its love for Jesus?In Pile of Masks, Dustin Renz candidly explores this issue in the Christian community from an insider's vantage point. Having been set free from a hypocritical lifestyle himself, he explains how the Lord broke the chains of hypocrisy in his heart, restored his marriage and ministry and brought him into an authentic life in Christ. This book takes readers on a journey through history to discover how the enemy has been using hypocrisy to pull people away from God since the beginning of time. It presents powerful principles to help all believers rise above a backslidden church culture. All who hunger for more than status quo Christianity need to read this book!

The Masks We Wear

The Masks We Wear

As a social role the concept of the persona is useful in allowing an individual to move in and out of relationships without being too vulnerable. A persona can be the oil to ease potential social friction. A persona provides for some predictability of relationship, but wearing a mask may become a sub-personality preventing us from embracing our true spiritual identity.

Celebrity A Mask

Celebrity A Mask

This book, Celebrity a Mask, is the last book that Professor Fomum wrote with his own hand, after almost 56 years in the faith and 35 years of ministry both in Cameroon and abroad. Using the example of General Naaman in the Bible who was hiding his leprosy and covering it up with the mask of military success, money, honour, celebrity and the like, the author lays emphasis on the fact that most people wear a mask. In fact, many people hide their condition by wearing the mask of money, women, celebrity, etc., whereas their hearts are rotten with sin. A mask is something that a person wears to deceive or to cloud reality. A mask is something that a person wears for fear that people may know who he or she really is. As a mature presentation of the Gospel, this book captures the burden for the souls of men that the author had towards the end of his life. Read it. Not only will you discover which masks you are wearing, but you will meet Jesus-Christ, the Lord and Saviour, who will take away your masks, and give you salvation of the soul and healing of the body.
