Of all Nietzsche’s books, The Antichrist comes nearest to conventionality in form. Common and Ludovici for showing me the way around many a difficulty. This book belongs to the most rare of men.

Of all Nietzsche’s books, The Antichrist comes nearest to conventionality in form. It presents a connected argument with very few interludes, and has a beginning, a middle and an end. Most of his works are in the form of collections of apothegms, and sometimes the subject changes on every second page.

The first book on Nietzsche ever to appear in English, this examination by legendary journalist H. L. Mencken is still . He was also the translator of Nietzsche's The Anti-Christ. Mencken is still one of the most enlightening. Paperback: 224 pages. ISBN-10: 9781884365317.

by Friedrich Nietzsche. Friedrich w. nietzsche. 1. - Let us look each other in the face. I confess, to begin with, that there are very few books which offer me harder reading than the Gospels. PREFACE This book belongs to the most rare of men. Perhaps not one of them is yet alive. My difficulties are quite different from those which enabled the learned curiosity of the German mind to achieve one of its most unforgettable triumphs.

The Anti-Christ book. Mencken who was a scholar, social critic, journalist, and satirist. He spoke German growing up and became a great admirer of Nietzsche's philosophy. This makes for an interesting read as the philosopher, and the translator were of the same beliefs.

The Antichrist - H. (Henry Louis) Mencken. As a devout Christian, I had very high expectations from this book. I was surprised to learn that Nietzsche was not anti-semitic, that was something I learnt from this book. The Project Gutenberg EBook of The Antichrist, by F. W.

The Anti-Christ is a work originally published in 1895 and written by philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. This is a book which is seen as an assault by Nietzsche on the institution of Christianity and focuses on the "slave morality" and the apathy of Western Christianity. Believeing that Christianity is a poinoner, the author uses a systematic and detailed attack upon the popular interpretation of Christ's words by St. Paul and his followers. This edition also features an introduction written by H. L. Mencken. The Anti-Christ is highly recommended for those who are interested in the religious beliefs of Friedrich Nietzsche and also those who enjoy his writings.
Comments to eBook The Anti-Christ
Bloodray
The Anti-Christ is more about the organized religious institution of Christianity than it is about God or even Christians themselves (although he does criticize both God and Christians to some degree, too). The basis for his criticisms are as follows:

1. Christians lifted their religion from pagans.
2. The Bible is full of inconsistencies.
3. The leaders within the Christian faith are con-men and liars.
4. There are better choices than Christianity.
4a. The things Nietzsche states that he values over Christianity in the book include: Buddhism, Code of Manu, Jews/Judaism, Islam, and pretty much everything else.
5. The apostle Paul was one of the original Christian con-men.
6. Western civilization does not lie on a bedrock of Christianity as many modern people often claim (mistakenly in Nietzsche's opinion). He states that since Christianity was lifted from the pagans, it's really paganism that our civilization was built upon.

There is clearly a ring of truth in all of these assertions. I'm just not sure that it's as big of a deal as Nietzsche makes it out to be. But who am I to argue with the brilliant Friedrich Nietzsche?

A mildly interesting book that serves as a scathing observation of the Christian faith. There are some good arguments made in this book that will make anyone contemplate what Nietzsche is saying (whether you are of faith, or an atheist), but some of what is wrote in this book comes off as nothing more than angst, bitterness and extremely juvenile at times. That is not say it isn't written well, because it most certainly is - and is also a testament to the books lasting impact - but I couldn't help but envision Nietzsche as being more than a little childish with some of the inane passages in the book.

With this being the first Nietzsche book that I have read, I was somewhat impressed (mainly at the way it is written and how it demands introspection), but found myself getting bored by the halfway point because it doesn't ever really go anywhere other than presenting chapter after chapter of why Nietzsche feels that Christianity is the worst thing to ever happen to the planet earth, and the thing is, the book is barely over 100 pages long.

I'll read more from Nietzsche, especially since most of his books can be found for free and I would recommend this book to those curious of his works. Despite the books angry repetition, it does leave you with pondering thoughts and in all honesty, I think even those that are highly religious could learn something out of this book.

Nietzche follows his basic premise of 'The worst thing to happen to humanity is Christianity' through out his book, and will certainly make those who read this book uncomfortable, but challenging. This is a book for Christians, and non Christians alike as Nietzche presents truths about Christianity in addition to his own personal thoughts, leaving the reader with his own questions about Christianity.

Enjoyed reading FWN's take on Christianity's role in moral structure and social influence. Obviously, given the title of his work, he opposes Christianity to its core. I myself, if I have to choose, am predominantly Christian in my beliefs but I am not so narrow minded to where I prevent my self from experiencing differing view points. His take on religion, predominantly Christianity, seems rather pessimistic and best. Either way it was a good read. Enlightening to say the least.
Zymbl
In Nietzsche's earlier works, he made several allusions to "The Anti-Christ," a man Nietzsche hoped would eventually be born. Unlike the traditional religious connotation, however, Nietzsche's anti-christ is a man who has such a deep insight into the universe, so pure a skepticism, that he is able to see truth like none before him. Spun throughout Nietzsche's works are allusions to the characteristics which this individual would possess to deliver this great insight into the world.

As one of his later works, I hoped this book would be that story. I had hoped that Nietzsche would bring together the threads of this new world view into a single poignant moment. Unfortunately, Nietzsche is never so forward and organized and an expectation otherwise was perhaps doomed to disappointment.

Instead of this culmination of work, I found this book a trifle repetitive. Over the course of 90 pages, Nietzsche repeats many of the anti-religious themes embedded in his earlier works. For those interested in this aspect of his scholarship (or unfamiliar with his previous works), I imagine this would be an excellent collection of his thoughts. He uses numerous examples to clearly indicate his attitude towards the rise of Christ, in life, as an ideal to equal his favorite Hinduism. For most of the book, however, he tells the story of the fall of Christ, in death, to the selfish motives of his flock. He weaves a story of an ideal which was so beyond his followers to understand that it became a twisted message used to grasp power.

Perhaps more important then the collection of thoughts is the success Nietzsche has in expressing his respect for Christ the man. Never before in Nietzsche's readings had I understood where he casts blame for the fall of Christianity. This makes the book especially accessible and well worth the read for people interested in his anti-organized religion attitudes.

I was curious to read some Nietzsche. Didn't really know whay it was all about. Meh. It was interesting, at least.
Felhalar
Friedrich Nietzsche's The Antichrist is an excellent read. It also arrived about a day after I ordered it, so was very convenient.
