The Devil's Pulpit

Front Cover
Book Tree, 2006 - 360 pages

This series of sermons was meant to challenge the rigid and uncompromising views that were held by Christianity in England at the time. Reverend Taylor was originally a doctor who took up the holy orders in the Church of England. His intense curiosity and desire to find the truth found him studying the roots of Christianity and its interesting connections to astrology and the signs of the zodiac. He came to the conclusion that Christianity is based on much older religions and its rituals are directly descended from ancient Egyptian and pagan practices. Although Taylor's holy orders were revoked and he was banned from preaching in the U.K., he continued his work in Ireland. He later returned to England and became even more controversial than ever. Arrested for blasphemy, he kept writing in jail. Upon his release he toured the universities of England with a colleague, debating and beating virtually everyone with material covered in this book. Subjects covered include the origins of Christianity, the real purpose of Jesus and the apostles, and the importance of the zodiac and its symbolism in relation to Christianity. Rev. Taylor was a trailblazer for all those who dare to question current beliefs.

The origin and "spiritual" or allegorical meaning of "Scripture" have never before been so fully and fathfully set forth as by Robert Taylor. If supernaturalists have entirely mistaken this meaning, unbelievers will here see that they have as widely erred in undervaluing it. Read full review

UNFORTUNATELY THIS IS ONLY PART ONE OF THE SERMONS. PART TWO IS NOT HERE IN THIS BOOK. WHAT A SHAME BECAUSE THE TWO SHOULD GO TOGETHER. i HAVE BOTH PARTS IN AN OLD BOOK AND IT IS ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT. I HOPE THE WHOLE BOOK WILL BE IN PRINT AGAIN TO ENLIGHTEN THE PUBLIC.
