4.0 out of 5 stars Much better than "Holy Blood and Holy Grail"., 14 Mar 2009
This review is from: The Messianic Legacy (Paperback)
The Messianic Legacy

The main section of the book comprising the messianic legacy in the Judaeo/Christian tradition and an interesting look at the way Paul spread the gospel is extremely well done, and as the authors say speculative but I found a convincing theory. Also the alternative take on the nature of Jesus in engrossing.

The authors were obviously anxious to put their case in respect of the criticism they had attracted with their first book "Holy Blood and Holy Grail" and commence with a 38 page response, if this had been condensed into 6 pages it would have been far more effective.

The last 170 pages devoted to the totally discredited Priory of Scion that had formed part of the rationale of HBHG seems pointless as anyone can obtain all the details from the Priory website; however in 1989 the internet was in its infancy and a resource of this nature was not available. Treat as an historical anomaly and ignore.

However the core of this book is detailed, well written, engaging, and well worth investigating.
