Very interesting hunt for the Ark. Whether it is even found or even exists may never be answered. However, they discovered a lot of interesting stuff about the history of the Templars and the history of famous Biblical sites. Well worth the read if you are into archeological type hunts for treasures.

I picked this book up at a time, years ago, when I was enthralled by the idea of the Templars and the many secrets that have followed them through the ages. Although many of those secrets are more conspiracy then truth, I find the stories of the Templars endlessly intriguing and can’t help but wonder what the truth is behind many of the tales.

I read this in Slovak. The translation was horrendous and the editing wasn't the best, either, but once I got through a few chapters and tried to ignore those things it got more interesting.

Overall I was pleasantly surprised. In my opinion it was easy to read, not heavy going at all. You were propelled into the dialogue and the character very quickly developed as a fellow colleague. You were part of the adventure.

No es tan bueno como esperaba, lo termine de leer más por compromiso de acabarlo que por el interés que despertó. Es un libro que pudo ser mejor peor no lo es, se nota el afán del escritor por darle un final.

“The most well known theory concerning the whereabouts of the Ark, made famous by the movie Raiders of the Lost Ark, places it in the ruins of the ancient city of Tanis in Egypt. This theory proposes that the Ark was plundered by the Egyptians shortly after Solomon’s death. According to the Old Testament, the pharaoh Sheshonq I of Egypt attacked Jerusalem, raided the Temple, and plundered its treasures (1 Kgs 14:26). Sheshonq I established Tanis as the new Egyptian capital, and so it is here that Indiana Jones discovers the lost Ark in Steven Spielberg’s movie.” 0 likes
