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."

Quarter cloth, 489 pp. including index. Includes black and white photographs. "Did Jesus marry and father a child? That is just one of the questions raised in this startling and provocative book, originally published in 1982 and inspiring such works as Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code. Are Christ's descendents alive today, the authors wonder, and is it even possible he did not die on the cross? Unearthing and examining arcane documents, the book looks into such contentions as the likelihood that Jesus's descendents are in the French Merovingian dynasty, protected by a secret society known as the Priory of Sion of which Leonardo da Vinci, Victor Hugo, and Jean Cocteau have been Grand Masters and that the Knights Templar were their military arm."
