The amount of meticulous research that went into crafting Holy Blood, Holy Grail is simply breath-taking. This book uses a wealth of historical documents and ancient evidence to support its controversial theories on the Holy Grail and Mary Magdalene and I highly recommend it. Also highly recommended are two other fine Grail books, one non-fiction and the other fiction, and both are by Michael Bradley, a renowned Grail expert who served as a researcher for the Da Vinci Code movie. Bradley's Swords at Sunset is a non-fiction work that traces the Grail to North America, while his fictional novel, The Magdalene Mandala is a wonderfully written thriller with a twisting plot that moves at break-neck speed. It also has well drawn characters and in the view of many is superior to the Da Vince Code. For anyone like me with a growing interest in the Grail, do yourself a favour and discover Holy Blood, Holy Grail; Swords at Sunset and The Magdalene Mandala and Love's Eclipse of the Heart. You'll be very glad you did.

If you are considering buying this book you probably already know what it says. The main premise of the book is not even discussed until page 313 in the paper back edition. Presented as a 450 page research paper it has little entertainment value and is not an easy read. There is no conclusion or proof offered to any of the theories the authors present. Holy Blood, Holy Grail may provoke thought but it is not worth the effort that it takes to read. You can make your own judgment on the content, if you can force yourself to finish reading the text.

    Have you ever read a book that changed your life?

    This book is fascinating and revealing. I have never been able to understand the Bible in quite the same way since I read this book. I recommend it for anyone who wants to know the historical aspects of the time of Christ and his legacy.

    Ignorance no More

    This book proved my point that the BIBLE only tells you what it wants to tell you. Personally, after reading this masterpiece I do believe that Jesus did not die on the cross. I know too much information, aside from this book, to fool myself any longer.

    Uncovers mysteries

    The book uncovers religious mysteries. Some are interesting and the book is an interesting read. For more truths about religion I would recommend the books An Encounter With A Prophet and Conversations about God.

    The truth, finally!

    An excellent and very provocative book. Well researched,with some outstanding historical detective work. Very readible in the writing style, but most certainly not pop-fiction. This book will make some question their pastor next Sunday at church, it also reinforces the fact that bible is nothing but a collection of allegories and mythical stories that can hardly be taken at face value. Recommended.
