Ancient Crete is a puzzle. The islanders of Bronze Age Crete were so far ahead of the other societies of their time that their beautiful artistic products were eagerly snapped up by the Egyptians and the people along Canaan's coast. They created the first merchant marine in history. Most astonishing of all their achievements, these people never knew war. Their thriving cities were not fortified. There are no scenes of warfare in their art and no record of the "deeds of mighty kings". Over their entire 5,000-year history they never knew war. How did they do it? This book posits that the answers are revealed in the history of their culture.

Where and why did it begin? and What makes it change?” stretches not the only the mind but also credulity. “A History of Western Cultures” offers well researched answers to these questions.

A couple of decades after the Crucifixion a Christology developed based upon the death of Jesus. It portrayed him as a divine, cosmic visitor who appeared in the Galilee disguised as a Jewish carpenter, performed some miracles, died on a cross for lost sinners, arose alive from a Judean tomb and miraculously ascended to Heaven. Thus Jesus the man became the Christ of Faith. This book gives the reader a choice: either to stay with the Christology based upon the death of Jesus or to peer behind ecclesiastical curtains and see what sociology and history have learned about early first-century Galilee and Judea, about the world of Jesus and what he faced every day of his life.
