From the Inside Flap
Is the traditional, accepted view of the life of Christ in some way incomplete?
- Is it possible Christ did not die on the cross?
- Is it possible Jesus was married, a father, and that his bloodline still exists?
- Is it possible that parchments found in the South of France a century ago reveal one of the best-kept secrets of Christendom?
- Is it possible that these parchments contain the very heart of the mystery of the Holy Grail?
According to the authors of this extraordinarily provocative, meticulously researched book, not only are these things possible -- they are probably true! so revolutionary, so original, so convincing, that the most faithful Christians will be moved; here is the book that has sparked worldwide controversey.
"Enough to seriously challenge many traditional Christian beliefs, if not alter them."
-- "Los Angeles Times Book Review
"Like "Chariots of the Gods?...the plot has all the elements of an international thriller."

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!
On the strength of this book, I have just purchased one of the Author's other books, "The Dead Sea Scrolls",
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.
