The secrecy that surrounds and protects the origins of Christianity can easily be compared to, as well as, dwarf the grandeur of reasoning of why "The Great Wall of China" was built. They were both created for protection from outside invaders. But in the case of Christianity, the fate of millions of followers around the world who have given up their lives to serve their most high Lord Jesus Christ, lies in the hopes that this web of secrecy will never be broken nor ever be penetrated. But with the creation of the outstanding book "The Templar Revelation" written by Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince, this web of secrecy may forever come crashing down at every believers feet.
Many readers may first try to shun this book because of the nature of it's reading material, in the belief that it's subject matter has already been saturated and that there could not possibly be any new material to cover. A person would be making a grave mistake by prematurely deriving this conclusion. The reason being, is because where past authors of similar books have failed to find the essential key to unlocking the mysteries of Christianity, Picknett and Prince have taken these past findings to a whole different level by diving in even deeper to the realms of these mysteries. They accomplish this feat by tracing the beliefs shared by thousands of heretics over centuries of time causing an unfamiliar and disturbing picture to unfold. What is now coming to light, is that the traditions and beliefs of many groups all share the same secrets. And what this book goes on to try to answer is if these beliefs are derived from a credible and substantial source. Not to say whether or not that the book did come up with a viable solution to this question, but if it did, then as quoted from the introduction to "The Templar Revelation", " if the heretical underground really did hold the missing key to Christianity, then what we are left with is a truly revolutionary scenario." And it's because of this type of revolutionary material that makes this book a "one-of-a-kind" written masterpiece.
Holding the title of being a Christian myself, I have to admit that I get very nervous and grow very weary when reading books of this nature. At the same time, I tap into my "thinking outside the box" part of my brain as my body gets filled with excitement and adrenalin surges throughout my blood. Experiencing this collage of emotions, I made sure to read "The Templar Revelation" with a clear and open mind. For without this, one may never have the chance to have the truth finally revealed to him or her. And isn't that exactly what we all want? The truth. And that's exactly the purpose of why Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince have written this book. They have credited the authors of "Holy Blood, Holy Grail" as providing the basis and the inspiration for their long and pain-staking 8 year quest into finding the correct and truthful answers to unlocking the mysteries and the secrets of Christianity. The purpose of "The Templar Revelation" is not to destroy Christianity, but instead, to provide the key to the origins and truth's of Christianity.
But I must warn fellow believers and Christians alike who attempt to read this book. You may not like the revelations that are revealed to you through the words of this book. You have to ask yourself, " Just how far do you want to go in this journey?" As quoted from the movie "The Matrix", " If you take the blue pill then you will wake up remembering nothing of what you have learned. If you take the red pill, then you will find out just how far down the rabbit hole goes." Hopefully you will choose the later of the two decisions because this book is a one-of -a-kind written masterpiece that will blow your mind by doing nothing short of providing the reader with the truth!

The Templar Revelation: Secret Guardians of the True Identity of Christ is a book written by Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince and published in 1997 by Transworld Publishers Ltd in Great Britain, Australia and New Zealand. It proposes a fringe hypothesis regarding the relationship between Jesus, John the Baptist and Mary Magdalene, and states that their true story has been suppressed by the Roman Catholic Church through, among other tactics, the conscious selection of the texts that make up the canonical New Testament, their campaigns against heresy, and their propaganda against non-Christians.
While researching the life and works of Leonardo da Vinci, including "his part in faking the Turin Shroud" which the authors document in their book "Turin Shroud— In Whose Image?", they discover a number of signs of unorthodox Christian thinking in the imagery used to portray some of the central characters in the New Testament, especially John the Baptist. Some paintings examined for their unusual choice of imagery include the two versions of Madonna of the Rocks and The Last Supper.
In the latter painting, they propose that the person in the painting seated, from a viewer’s point-of-view, to the left of Jesus is Mary Magdalene rather than John the Apostle, as most art historians identify that person. Furthermore, they point out that their body angles form the letter M, a reference to the Magdalene, and that she and Jesus are dressed in similar but ...
