This is a hard book to put down...makes you question the beliefs that one takes for granted as true. A very interesting read...
This book is a must read for anyone interested in the Knights Templar, their origins and what they stood for. The authors conclusions are highly probable. This is one of my favourite titles and I would also like to give five stars to the cover design.
My biggest problem with this interesting book is in its footnoting and documentation. Many of the works cited in the footnotes are not in the Bibliography (pp 71 and many others) Another big problem is the lack of primary sources. The so-called facts about what occured after the Fall of Jerusalem in AD 70 are taken from only one source: SGF Brandon's 'The Fall of Jerusalem and the Christian Church.' Many other claims are never cited at all. This book may succeed in swaying the average reader, but the authors must do better to convince anyone with any knowledge on the subject.
