Holy Blood, Holy Grail By Michael Baigent, Richard Leigh, and Henry Lincoln

This historical thriller is a real controversial book that challenges many people’s beliefs. In Holy Blood, Holy Grail the Knights Templar and other historic religious organizations fight for power in the government but it goes deeper than that. They propose the idea that Jesus did not die on the cross and that his bloodline still exists.  In the eyes of these secret societies Jesus’s bloodline should be the ones to rule the world.  The story benefits from the authors’ own research and hunt for the Holy Grail.
