For various reasons, I would not recommend this book to anyone who has very strong pre-conceived religious views. However, if one is broad minded, and continually asks questions about Jesus which people cannot answer, or why the Bible tends to be so innacurate in parts, this book goes a long way to answering these questions, and to me, and my brother, make sense! I know it is a heavy book to read, but it is also very intriguing and the connection with the Templars comes across very strongly.
I am looking forward to finding out more- amid controversy!
There are also some black and white photos in the middle of the book!
I found all this intriguing, along with Henry Lincoln’s investigation into the mystery that kick starts the book and sets the authors off on their quest for The Holy Blood and The Holy Grail, which all seemed like a cryptic crossword waiting to be solved. And the authors come up with a theory that sounds, on the face of it, very plausible indeed. However, whether the authors’ hypotheses are correct or not, I don’t know; it will be of course up the the readers themselves to judge. But the whole thing does make some fascinating, some would say fanciful, reading.
I would add that the book is not always an easy read; in parts it is quite difficult and I had problems trying to follow all the names that I kept encountering; and I did find some sections more interesting than others. However, I would recommend this book to anyone interested in conspiracy theories that has an open mind to consider alternative interpretations and explanations of events.
I hope you find my review helpful.
First off for anyone that likes picking up a book, reading it for half an hour or so, putting it down then coming back to it a week later I would stongly advise against this tact. For anyone with a bad memory (me) this is a great training aid. It is akin to walking down a direct path, seeing all the side roads and deciding to take them . . . you may get lost unless you are paying attention. It is superb fun!
I feel like I have mentally walked all over europe with a bag marked "intrigue", opened lots of hidden doors and peeped in, found a part of a jigsaw popped them in my intrigue bag, then opened another and found another piece of a jigsaw but for a completely different puzzle.
As you may have garnered I love this book. Still to finish as I need to recap myself on what I have learned A LOT!
I highly recommend this book it is so good!
I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
It will make you think and ask questions. And you may just find yourself becoming an armchair investigator.
Sadly Baigent and Leigh have passed away but Henry Lincoln is still with us and living in France.
On the strength of this book, I have just purchased one of the Author's other books, "The Dead Sea Scrolls",
