Product Description

Even the most orthodox Christian theologians and fundamentalist Bible scholars admit that Jesus? exact birth date is unknown. Why then is His birthday observed between late December and early January around the world? As award-winning Christian author and Southern historian Lochlainn Seabrook reveals in this fascinating and exhaustively researched work, the answer is to be found in the Goddess-based vegetation religions of prehistory and their astrological reverence for our neighborhood star, the Sun. Ten years in the making, ?Christmas Before Christianity? explores the pre-Christian foundations of humanity?s most popular holiday, including the many Pagan gods, goddesses, myths, rituals, legends, ceremonies, customs, and beliefs that contributed to its creation and development. Special emphasis is placed on ancient Egypt, where a majority of our modern? Christmas traditions? can be traced. This sensational 300-page work will not only provoke discussion, but will also inspire a renewed appreciation for both the religion of Christ and for the annual celebration of His birth. Note: Southern conservative and U.S. President Thomas Jefferson, who was disgusted by the Paganization of the historical Jesus, would have heartily endorsed this book. Lochlainn Seabrook is the winner of the prestigious Jefferson Davis Historical Gold Medal, awarded by the United Daughters of the Confederacy. Known as the? American Robert Graves? after his celebrated British cousin, Seabrook is a seventh-generation Kentuckian of Appalachian heritage, the sixth great-grandson of the Earl of Oxford, the twenty-first great-grandson of King Edward I, the fortieth great-grandson of British Queen Boudicca, and the author of over thirty popular books. A specialist in thealogy (Goddess-oriented religion), his works include: ?Britannia Rules: Goddess-Worship in Ancient Anglo-Celtic Society?; ?The Book of Kelle: An Introduction to Goddess-Worship and the Great Celtic Mother-Goddess Kelle?; ?The Goddess Dictionary of Words and Phrases?; ?The Quotable Jefferson Davis?; ?The Quotable Robert E. Lee?; ?Everything You Were Taught About the Civil War is Wrong, Ask a Southerner!; ?Abraham Lincoln: The Southern View?; ?The Unquotable Abraham Lincoln?; ?A Rebel Born: A Defense of Nathan Bedford Forrest?; ?The McGavocks of Carnton Plantation: A Southern History?; ?Nathan Bedford Forrest: Southern Hero, American Patriot?; ?Carnton Plantation Ghost Stories: True Tales of the Unexplained From Tennessee?s Most Haunted Civil War House!; ?UFOs and Aliens: The Complete Guidebook?; and?
