Examines contemporary claims for Christian dependence on Hellenistic philosophy, Greco-Roman mystery religions, and Gnosticism. He finds the case for dependence in the strong sense tenuous.


"An excellent apologetic . . . showing the insuperable problems of viewing Christianity as an outgrowth of Greek philosophy, the Hellenistic mystery religions, or gnosticism."

—Robert C. Newman

"Not content with refuting unsound arguments; he makes positive contributions to the subject under discussion."

—F. F. Bruce

"A lucid and superb book."

—Edwin Yamauchi
