Customer Review

on 22 February 2004
Book: The Second Messiah
Writer: Christopher Knight & Robert Lomas
Style: Hardback
Length: 259 pages
Rating: *** (3 stars, good)
The book asks some hard questions for hard core Christians. Questions like, is the Bible the true word of God? Should it be considered to bring forth the only true form of Christianity? What happened during the “missing years” right after the crucifixion of Jesus? Did Peter or Jesus’ brother James actually lead the “approved” church of Jesus Christ. How do the two differ and why would or could the wrong on prevail? Why is there no record in the Bible of the almost annihilation of the Jews (God’s chosen people) by the Roman’s? These are some of the tough questions asked in the first chapter alone.
Through painstaking research many of the questions are answered in with historical reference. There is quite a case presented for the “Shroud of Turin” being the image of a master mason and not that of Jesus Christ. Read the history of the shroud that was tracked down along with the many missing years and it’s first documented appearance. Find out the origin of the Temple in Roslyn Scotland.
This book also offers much of the history of the freemasons and the persecution and flight from Jerusalem to Scotland and their spread across the world. It offers historical and analytical presentations on many subjects involving and surrounding Christianity. The book was enjoyable as one of many possibilities involving Christianity over the years. There are many books out there regarding the subject of Christianity’s evolution and this should be read as only one of the many.
It goes without saying that this book will offend many. It will be written off as hogwash by many. But I believe that any student of Christianity, Religions or Freemasonry should certainly read it. Read it with an open mind and consider what is presented before passing judgment on the book.
