Is anyone aware of a book that debunks the claims that some of the stories in the Bible were merely reworded copies from pagan mythology?

I have found some websites. I was wondering if there were some books on the topic, because I've only found "anti-christian" books which discuss the topic in great length. I typically try to avoid those, but to be as educated as possible when discussing this with non-believers I think I need to know what is being written and put out there.

I've been urged to watch the online video "Zeitgeist," but found the youtube videos debunking the documentary much more interesting.

Are you familiar with the author Dr. Jonathan Safati? I am not, but it looks like he has several books out disproving atheistic beliefs.

I don't think that the authors are Catholics, but you don't need to be to take down that tissue of lies and flawed outdated scholarship.

They also have a book called 'shattering the Christ myth' which I have found helpful.
