Wikipedia describes this novel: a plot to destroy Christianity by falsely disproving the Resurrection of Christ leads to moral disorder and chaos in the world until it is exposed. Although commercially successful, it has been criticized as being anti-Semitic.
I was very disappointed with this book. As a student studying theology I was excited to have some interesting points being raised but I was let down. His points are taken grossly out of context. While it does raise one or two interesting discussion points mostly he tries to present a overwhelming amount of proof but the majority of it is poorly researched white noise.
Enjoyable, if a bit stilted. J.J. Malone is entertaining, and the other noir characters suit the story.
The cover made me expect a fairly decent sci-fi pulp from the early 80s; it was everything except fairly decent.
