I know nothing about this book other than that it has been nominated for the Diagram Prize for Oddest Book Title of the Year.

The article's description of the book:

The author reveals that Jesus is a personification of the Holy Mushroom, Amanita Muscaria.

Other nominees for this prestigious award can be read at the linked article, which concluded with this:

The Diagram Prize for Oddest Book Title of the Year was first awarded in 1978 to Proceedings of the Second International Workshop on Nude Mice.

Any relation to The Sacred Mushroom and the Cross: A Study of the Nature and Origins of Christianity within the Fertility Cults of the Ancient Near East, written by John M. Allegro in 1970?
