In Depth Book Counters Assured Facts in Bible
Examples in the book include how Jesus was not born in Bethlehem, there was no such person as Joseph, and Peter was not the first pope, nor was he ever in Rome. The Christian Church anointed Peter as the mythical head of the new religion almost 150 years after the Crucifixion.
In apocryphal texts, Mary Magdalene is portrayed as a visionary and leader of the early movement, the one whom Jesus loved more than he loved the other disciples.
Meredith recognizes that the religious hierarchy is unaccepting of comments that point to myths or untruths but wishes to reach a wide audience and raise awareness.
"I was reared in a strict Catholic family where church attendance and daily prayer was adamant and the teaching of one religion dominated our lives," said Meredith. "A lifetime of questioning these religious doctrines culminated in the writing of this book."
For fans of "The Da Vinci Code" and similar books, "The Search: Looking for Truth in the Christian Religion" is a text that sheds light on the misconceptions and revisions made by church authorities within the past 2,000 years.
