I have many problems with this book,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Hiram Key: Pharoahs,Freemasons and the Discovery of the Secret Scrolls of Christ (Paperback)
As preparation for a visit to Rosslyn Chapel I thought this would be interesting to read.
The problem is the authors go about putting and "proving" their theory in such an amateurish and totally unbelievable way I find it very hard going even to finish the book.
They already had me foaming at the mouth in chapter one where they claim the Freemasons are so great, because everybody can join. Sure everybody can join except half the world's population, namely women! This is not the only huge mistake in thinking they make, others include very selective quoting from the bible (which version or translation they use to quote from seems to depend entirely on the "evidence" they need for some particular point in their speculations)and some very dodgy calculating when it comes to placing biblical characters into written history(if in the Bible the age of Abraham is exaggerated why would Isaac's age be stated correctly?).If there is some sense in their theories(and who knows,there might be), they succeed in completely undermining it by the nonsensical way they try to prove them.
Somewhere in the beginning of this book they describe the Freemasons as a jolly men's club with nice food and plenty of drinking and parties.
I wish they had left it at that, just go back to
having a nice pint with your Freemason mates boys and don't injure your brains further by thinking too much.
