Children of the Sun

Description

An electrifying journey into the origins and meaning of the world's religions and popular gods. Over the past several centuries, the Big Three spiritual leaders have been Christ, Krishna and Buddha, whose similar stories and teachings amaze both followers and scholars. Each is a miraculously-born redeemer; overcame heroic challenges; taught ethics and morality; performed marvels and wonders; was persecuted, killed and resurrected. The metaphoric tale each spiritual figure embodies is not unique, however, but found in many cultures long before the Christian era. The author reveals that the parallels exist not because these godmen were actual historical personages, but because they personify ancient, scandalous global mysteries. This in-depth analysis is based upon original research and modern and ancient evidence of Astrotheology, or the worship of the sun, moon, stars and planets.
