As many have suspected, there is much more to the true, authentic history of the Christian religion than what we had originally been told. Some claims regarding the Church's history are accurate, some are not. The most extreme claims against the religion come from the atheist camp and often remain unproved. But this book is completely different. It comes from a devout Christian, Henry Dana Ward, a believer in Christ who backs himself up with scholarly research and facts.

Why, then, was this book written if it goes against traditional beliefs and acceptance? It is because the traditional beliefs surrounding the cross and its worship are wrong! It took time for us to eventually accept the cross in its current form and to worship it and, according to Ward, this was a pagan symbol that should never have been adopted.

Idols were not to be worshipped by the earliest of Christians, and the cross was no exception to this rule. Not worshipping the cross is consistent with early Christianity and is not heretical. Its lack of worship is part of Christianity's foundational beliefs and its exclusion should be part of the religion's current structure, according to Ward. Revering the cross is based on lies, deception, and ignorance. Ward shows how the lies began, who spread them, and how and why they did it. This book has not been in print since 1871. At the time it was released, books of this sort, which challenged accepted belief, were often banned from libraries and people were known to be arrested for sending them in the mail.

About the Author:

Born in 1797 in Shrewsbury, Henry Dana graduated from Harvard with an A.B. in 1816 and an A.M. in 1819. He was ordained as an Episcopal minister and had parish in Virginia. Henry Dana Ward married twice: Abigail Porter Jones, his first wife, died 1837 in NYC. He then married Charlotte Galbraith in 1842 in Charleston, West Virginia. He fathered 4 children in his second marriage. He moved with Charlotte to New York City and together they founded a girls’ school there. Henry Dana wrote Free Masonry: Its Pretensions Exposed in Faithful Extracts of Its Standard Authors (1828) and other monographs. He retired with his family to Philadelphia., PA and died in 1884. His son Henry Galbraith Ward bought the Ward House back from foreclosure and later sold it to Artemas Ward.
