Publisher Comments:

Is the traditional, accepted view of the life of Christ in some way incomplete?

• Is it possible Christ did not die on the cross?

• Is it possible Jesus was married, a father, and that his bloodline still exists?

• Is it possible that parchments found in the South of France a century ago reveal one of the best-kept secrets of Christendom?

• Is it possible that these parchments contain the very heart of the mystery of the Holy Grail?

According to the authors of this extraordinarily provocative, meticulously researched book, not only are these things possible — they are probably true! so revolutionary, so original, so convincing, that the most faithful Christians will be moved; here is the book that has sparked worldwide controversey.

"Enough to seriously challenge many traditional Christian beliefs, if not alter them."

— Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Like Chariots of the Gods?...the plot has all the elements of an international thriller."

— Newsweek

Michael Baigent was born in New Zealand in 1948 and obtained a degree in psychology from Canterbury University. At one point he gave up a successful career in photojournalism to devote his time to researching the Templars for a film project. Since 1976 he has lived in England.

Richard Leigh is a novelist and short-story writer with postgraduate degrees in comparative literature and a thorough knowledge of history, philosophy, psychology, and esoterica. He has been working for some years as a university lecturer in the United States, Canada, and Britain.

Holy Blood, Holy Grail by Michael Baigent, Richard Leigh and Henry Lincoln is a fascinating read. The book examines such things as the Merovingians, the church at Rennes-le-Chateau and the connection between the Priory of Sion and the Knights Templar. The book has been well researched and the arguments are quite convincing, particularly concerning the compilation of the Bible as we know it today. While there is no definitive evidence that the events portrayed in the Bible are anything but fact, the authors present a compelling argument for how the crucifixion could have been faked and by what methods it could have been done. There are also a number of details that support the argument for a faked crucifixion, such as Joseph using soma, Greek for “living body,” when requesting the body from Pilate. There are also striking contradictions among the Gospels. In Luke, Jesus was visited by sheperds at his birth and the family lived in Nazareth. In Matthew, Jesus was visited by kings and the family lived in Bethlehem. The authors also spend a fair amount of time examining just how the Bible was assembled into its current form and point out that in order to spread its version of the truth, the Church very likely had strong political reasons for editing, changing and culling many books that might have otherwise been included in the Bible. This was an excellent read if you enjoy the DaVinci Code and want to know more about the research behind the book.
