This review is from: BEHOLD JERUSALEM ! (Paperback)
Information from the Book's blurb:
The discovery of the most terrifyingly beautiful natural phenomenon ever to confront the eyes of man...
* The 12 signs of the zodiac (including a near 50 mile tall crucified Christ in Cumbria) miraculously profiled in the coastlines of Britain and N. Ireland - a picture of heaven on earth
* Equally remarkable, these figures are enormous mirror images of those found some 70 years ago mysteriously landscaped in a 10 mile diameter circle in Glastonbury, Devon. That same 10-mile circle, now precisely delineating the starry eye of the 155-mile long Piscean fish!
*Speaking of eyes, many place names actually verify the wonder underfoot - the eye of Sagittarius being beneath the Suffolk town of Eye! Seems then we may not be the first to know of this enchanted floor plan....
Was the reason behind the boy Jesus' supposed visit to Britain to experience himself already crucified on a cross 300 miles tall? To follow his recorded footsteps through Pisces will be to tempt a 'yes'!
Was Jason's search for the Golden Fleece carried out on these starry shores? Certainly, such is mapped out amidst the fleece of Yorkshire's constellation of Aries.
Was the Arthurian quest for the Holy Grail purposefully played out around this landscaped map of the heavens? When I take you to Cumbria's great green Christ you will see that very cup, 672ft high, and named for what it is, poignantly placed at his side wound in stunning testament to the legend.
Where the Egyptians aware of Britain's miracle when they pinpointed the Fields of the Blessed/ Underworld over the western Horizon? For sure, we'll find both word and picture of their lord of the Underworld, Osiris, inscribed all over these western fields.
Indeed, it will seem that the mythology of many cultures has been stored in these revelatory fields, especially when the extraordinary graphic clues in the map suggest that Noah's ark (the flood being a near global myth) was, or WILL BE, these British Isles.
But this is just the tip of the Iceberg
*To journey through these topographical constellations, registering as we go the startling evidence on the ground, will be to decode a 300x300 mile pictogram to the conclusion that the very Earth herself is desperately trying to speak to us - trying, via the universal language of mythology, to warn us that all creation stands at this moment upon a monumental brink. One of either pending catastrophe or, if we have the perception, one over which we can make a evolutionary leap, hand in hand which nature, into a new golden age - a new global spanning Jerusalem - a heaven on Earth, hence Britain's Prophetic shape!
The odyssey awaiting the open-minded reader is like no other. Perchance a few will return with lives of uplifted and a love for this planet bordering on the painful. ...If not a fluke, staggering will the implications be.
From the Publisher:
In this book author Graham Griffiths presents a staggering portfolio of the evidence that will fundamentally change the reader's conception of mythology and nature. In his work Griffiths demonstrates how the British Isles are powerfully marked by the 12 zodiacal constellations, constellations etched in the landscape, evidenced in place names, and local mythology and visually documented through a series of beautiful illustrations by the author. Furthermore Griffiths demonstrates through the use of legends and myths from all countries and religions how the landscape of Britain, of the planet is sending to us a vital message about our own moral existence. This limited edition book is a treasure for generations, and might just prove to be a poignant marker for those who we leave this Earth to.
The book is a limited edition of only 1000 copies, all hand signed by the author himself.
From the Inside Flap:
He was eleven years old when he first spotted four giants profiled in the coastal shape of Britain. He thought nothing of it at the time. Seventeen years later he stumbled upon a book containing silhouetted replicas of his four childhood giants. However, these were but four in a circle of twelve zodiacal figures as found in the 1930s by Katherine Maltwood and seemingly sculpted via the uncanny artistry of steams, ancient track ways and contours in the vicinity of Glastonbury, Devon. The enigmatic ten-mile circle those figures form since became known as the Glastonbury Zodiac. Until then Graham hadn't even realised his own giants were astrological.
Using Maltwood's giants as templates, at the age of 42 he had found virtual duplicates of those remaining eight Glastonbury figures fitting exactly the rest of Britain and N. Ireland's coastline. A further ten years on and what you now hold in your hands is geological, historical, mythological, religious - you name it - it's dynamite!
But Graham is a reluctant author; feels out of his depth, indeed feels shanghaied into having to tell this tale - shanghaied, because his conscience insisted it could be too important not to tell. The result is that his down-to-earth passion and, at time raging self-doubt, leaps off the page. In truth, he hardly dares himself to believe in what he has discovered - because surely it's all too beautiful to be true? The implications too damned earth shaking to be taken seriously? Thus, he merely asks is to look with new eyes at the disarming evidence on the ground, thereafter to make of it what we will. As for Graham, his task, indeed what has become his unplanned life's work, is done. He can now return to his paintbrushes, for like Maltwood, he too is an artist. It seems artists have an eye for that which others have been blind to.
