Excellent read!!! History, could be.

This book was very interesting. Though as a western christian it was hard to abolish inbred beliefs and accept all their writings completely, it did prompt questions and stimulate further research into the history of man, religion and 'God' himself.

The authors provided a mind bending experience for me. Virtually, I read all I can on this subject and related subjects. I have always known that there is a truth to history that only a few risk taking souls can find and share.My questions revolve around the religious Christ we Christians know. If Jesus Christ, the eldest, was indeed a hunched-back individual, and unattractive as described, then why would he be admitted to the Jewish cult of the Nasareans -as they accepted non-disabled men only? Why mention Thomas as being Jesus's twin without researching and reporting on this mysterious connection? If Christ is for equality, why have the Masons remained male only? The more I read and study, the more I am aware that I probably will never know the answers to these mysteries. However, like most of us seeking after the truth, I keeping running after every little clue. It seems the authors went to a lot of trouble to point out that Jesus is not who we thought he was, which I have to accept, but at the very end of the book, the authors seem to praise Jesus as the admired hero of the Masons.I learned a lot from this book. This kind of material forces my mind to view a subject from a different perspective.

    Pays for itself

    If you want quit taking sleeping pills, this book is a great subsitute. So slow and boring that I left it on an airplane for the next poor schmuck to drool on. No actual connections are made in this book, just conjecture and wishful thinking.This was the worst book I have ever read, and would never purchase another written by either author. Waste of money!

    Great Story Bad Historians

    The reality is that this book is fun to read but that it is not referenced well and that tremendous leaps are made from idea to idea. Not a scholarly book at all. The even crazier part is that they have written numerous other books built upon their foundation of maybes and could bes. Put this one on the shelf beside your wifes romance novels. Read it for fun, not to learn about Freemasonry. Great fiction.
