While Acharya certainly had her share of critics, and I'll admit she wasn't right about everything, I think, on balance, she was right more often than she was wrong. She more than answered her critics with Christ in Egypt, which I still consider to be her best book and my favorite. She will be missed dearly by me and many others who learned so much from her. At the moment, her family is in need of financial support to cover funeral costs and other expenses. Please purchase her work here, as 100% of the proceeds will go to her family. I just want to take this time to say thank you Acharya, for helping to open my eyes and countless others like me.
Also, the folks at Mythicist Milwaukee put together a great tribute in memory of Acharya, featuring a panel consisting of such prominent people as David Fitzgerald, Robert Price, and Aron Ra. Take a listen if you have some time.
