    Incredible Story

    This book was a great read. It looks like the Christian and Jewish religions owe some answers to their followers. I wish we could get Knight and Lomas into the Vatican vaults. That might speed up the enlightening process. My one problem with this book is the fact that two men from other areas of expertise put together such a comprehensive history in a short time when experts within the field have missed such obvious clues.

    Have you an open mind??

    Whether you are a Freemason or not, this book will interest all those with an open mind. For Masons, it looks towards Ancient Egypt as an explanation for the Order's origins and follows its evolution through the Order of the Knights Templar and to possible 'Hidden Secrets' buried beneath an Abbey in Scotland. For non Masons, the authors look to explore the possibilities of who Christ was, potentially upsetting many strongly held beliefs, but in my view with no malicious intentions to destroy beliefs, but maybe to encourage the asking of a few questions once in a while.
