Extremely Interesting Book,
This review is from: The Second Messiah: Templars, the Turin Shroud and the Great Secret of Freemasonry (Hardcover)
I couldn't put this book down! The authors have traced the origins of Freemasons and provided fascinating evidence and details of the history of the Templars, from their beginnings, through their 'glory years' and after their brutal persecution era. It also recounts the events of the Roman Catholic church during this time that many modern day devout Christians will find deeply disturbing and heretical.
This book also details evidence for the claims that the Turin Shroud was not the imprint of Jesus after his crucifixion, but the imprint of a man regarded by the exiled Templars as the second messiah.
This book will offend some, but if, like me, one questions the beliefs of modern day Christianity as being rather incredulous, this book will offer clues and suggestions as to how this religion has diverted from its origins and evolved into the faith we know today, and how esoteric images and scripts still exist today recording the original roots of the Christian faith.
