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 Copyright © Libri GmbH.

Interesting fiction! I say only because the whole basis of the book is based upon "Dossiers Secrets". This was written by Pierre Plantard and Philippe de Ch%C3%A9risey under the pseudonym of "Philippe Toscan du Plantier." It meant to show lineage back to the Merovingian dynasty. They wanted to revive the monarch in France in the 1960's.

"For if Jesus were acknowledged as a mortal prophet, as a priest-king and legitimate ruler of the line of David, he might well have become acceptable to both Muslims and Jews. As king of Jerusalem, his lineal descendant would then have been in a position to implement one of the primary tenets of Templar policy - the reconciliation of Christianity with Judaism and Islam." (p. 445.)
