Dissatisfied with the explanations of previous researchers, Richard Andrews & Paul Schellenberger applied mathematical logic to the enduring mystery of Rennes-le-Chacircteau & the "treasure" alleged to be buried there. Beginning with a healthy skepticis ...more

I approched this book expecting new insights into Jesus' burial and resurection as suggested by above title. Instead, I found a long and far-fetched esoteric theory based in obscure geometry with reference points which are totally arbitrarily set by the authors. An hypothesis that is merely plausible will become a certainty in the next chapter and a whole new certainty is built on a completely erroneous and inexistant evidence. The book is a waste of time. I do not doubt the esoterism may have s ...more

This book may be of interest to persons who've read Dan Brown's books or the book he primarily worked from, The Holy Blood & the Holy Grail. It is harder going, however.

An interesting book, I can certainly see where the idea of "Da Vinci Code" came from, the book is based on the authors ideas and research and ends with what they believe to be the location of Jesus's body. They don't force you to believe they are right it's up to you to decide! Do I believe them I'm still sceptical till I see undisputed proof I'll always be sceptical!
Well written and easy to follow despite the use of trigonometry and Pythagoras and other such mathematics. If you're interested i

Well, I enjoyed reading this book but found the theory to be a bit far fetched. To be honest the authors have not found the tomb of anyone they have just decided through their own research that there could be one in a certain place in France. Not very convincing but entertaining all the same.
