Description

From royal and suppressed archives comes documented proof of the heritage of Jesus in the West and the long awaited discovery of the Holy Grail. In fulfilling this time-honored quest, penetrating new light is cast upon the Grail Code of Service and the venerated feminine element, upheld in chivalry but forsaken by the Church in order to forge a male dominated society.This unique work offers revelatory insight concerning the descendant heirs of Jesus and his brother James while, in documenting a hidden legacy of the Messiah, it unveils hitherto guarded facts about characters such as Mary Magdalene and Joseph of Arimathea. Tracing the sacred lineage through centuries of persecution and Inquisition, "Bloodline of the Holy Grail" reveals a systematic suppression of authentic records and a strategic manipulation of the New Testament Gospels.Featuring all the charm and adventure of Arthurial romance, coupled with enthralling Rosicrucian and Templar disclosures, this extraordinary work has a cutting edge of intrigue that removes the established blanket of enigma to expose one of the greatest conspiracies ever told.… (more)

I don't really know why I read this book. Perhaps I saw the tag line "The hidden lineage of Jesus revealed" and thought I'd better check whether it was me who was directly descended from Jesus.

Turns out Gardner hasn't come to the conclusion that I'm the messiah (or even a naughty boy for that matter) but I have to say that (SPOILER) when I read the foreword by "Prince Michael of Albany", I guessed (correctly as it turns out) who was Gardner's pick for Jesus' descendant.

In between the foreword and the conclusion, Gardner makes a lot of declarations but provides scant reputable evidence, although to be fair, I wasn't expecting much reputable evidence when I picked the book up.
