To be sincere the book doesn't change my religious beliefs.The books leaves me thinking deep of all the happenings and branding of Judas as the worst disciple to now being re-branded in this particular production as the one who took the ultimate sacrifice. Its really interesting at the same time worrisome because what will happen to us Christians if many writers decided to dig this deep?? Will this cause much confusion?.

No, it doesn't. I am a Muslim and I have my own belief. Reading is what I love because there is no knowledge wasted from any type of book including this.

I wouldn't say that the book changed my beliefs, as I was already a skeptic. However, it did reinforce some of the things I had thought of before. That made for a really nice read.

Glad to hear it! Would you consider reviewing it on Amazon?

Books are nice and they are a pass time, also a source of income for some. However, religion is too important, at least to me, to even consider that any book might change it.

I was a Christian in 1974. Then In 1975, I saw this book. http://www.scienceofthesoul.org/product_p/en-036-0.htm
It changed the course of my life forever. So one book can change one's long-held convictions. If you are a Christian, didn't the Bible change yours? I don't see why anyone thinks the Bible is unique.
I'm sorry, I did not mean to be dismissive about your book. In fact, I'm a Hindu, not Christian. I've read a few books that question the behaviour/values/acts of (Hindu) God's avatars on earth, and I was not swayed by any of them. Although I'm aware that Hinduism and Christianity differ in fundamentals like chalk from cheese, I believe faith itself is inherently unshakeable, whether in the Bible or the Ramayan.
I don't see faith in any writing. I see it as a reaction to that writing. You have faith or you don't in something.

The book does cause me to reconsider my religious beliefs. I now am remembering that I first questioned some of the church's teachings when reading the Da Vinci Code. I am open to new information and will consider reading more on this subject. The author made many suggestions regarding additional readings and websites for further information. I have also done some reading about meditation and Eastern teachings, so that is why I may be open to the ideas presented by the author. I would not say that I have changed my beliefs, but I will approach them with a more spiritual interpretation and not such a literal one.

The attempt by the book to make Judas a hero is laughable and cannot alter the mindset of any meaningful reader.
The "facts" states here are unreliable and untested as well.

It's an interesting interpretation and while the book is well-sourced, it does not change my beliefs, nor does it deepen my understanding of the numinous.

I don't "make Judas a hero." Did you read the book?

It changes nothing for me. Saying Judas was not a traitor is like saying Peter didn't hear the cock crow three times! I however, like how the book has brought so many questionable ideas.

HA. Funny you should mention Peter's "denials." Never happened! They were Jesus's denials. Read the first paragraph of the Apocalypse of Peter. No way did Peter say he didn't know Jesus. The original was about being denied inner vision in meditation. It will not be seen as possible for this to work the other way around. The GNOSTIC story is the one that came first. This shows that the canon is false all by itself. A wonder no scholar ever noticed.
