Speurtocht naar de ware aard en motieven van Jezus Christus en de rol die Maria Magdalena en Johannes de Doper hebben gespeeld, een rol die door de rooms-katholieke kerk altijd is ontkend en vervormd.

Dit boek is een behoorlijke turf die je tot heel wat geschiedkundige en godsdienstige stelling doet aanzetten tot nadenken. Het boek is heel god onderbouwd en puilt ook uit van de verwijzingen. Het boek is een aanrader als je na alle thrillers uit het genre rond Jezus, Johannes en Maria Magdalena ook eens behoefte hebt naar historische achtergronden.… (mer)

I remember buying this book years ago when looking for something outlandish to read, but when I finally got around to reading it, I realised that I'd misjudged it - well, partly. The authors don't hide the fact that they are open to many of the subjects discussed - alien contact, the pyramids of Mars, Atlantis - but most of the book adopts quite an agnostic approach to these central questions. However, it's most interesting aspect is that it provides a fascinating account of how various intelligence agencies, cults and organisations have manipulated - perhaps even created - the so-called New Age for their own agenda (sometimes 'spiritual', but often political or even military). Furthermore, the links it makes between these various individuals and organisations are often not conjectural, but documented fact - which is quite worrying, really. Do people in high places really think that aliens built the pyramids, or created life on Earth? Or is it all just some elaborate social experiment to road-test a new means of social control? The authors, to their credit, remain relatively open minded - which was, for someone with a sceptical disposition, something of a pleasant surprise for me! Saying that, their tracing of the endless and intricate web of connections may leave some readers cold.

The authors are probably on to something - especially regarding the world shadow government or whatever you want to call it. But the text in the book bounces all over the place and is a rather tedious read.

The first three chapters were bad enough with its obvious anti-Christian bias. But when chapter four begins using a dicredited book by Michael Baigent ("Holy Blood Holy Grail") as her evidence, the author shows her true colors.

Lynn Picknett left her search for fact in a crusade for paranormal pop culture.

If you are serious about researching the history, forensic methodology summary of the technical aspects of the the shroud, this is not a book be used.
