The new non fiction proposal from the bestselling authors of The Templar Revelation, and most recently The Sion Revelation.
This book is not intended as an attack on Christianity of the Christ of faith, but is an assessment of all the historical evidence about Jesus Christ.
Although there is a huge literature on the subject - theological, historical, mythical, New Age and speculative - almost all of it is aimed at a niche market. The Masks of Christ is very different, being a mainstream book aimed at everyone. For the first time, all the various theories and facts about Jesus are considered between the covers of one accessible book.
As the phenomenal sales of The Da Vinci Code continue to fuel a growing global appetite for questioning the old certainities and assumptions about Christianity and what it says about its founder, never has there been a more perfect time to launch The Masks of Christ.
Lynn Picknett is author of Mary Magdalene: Christianity's Hidden Goddess and (with Clive Prince) Turin Shroud: How Leonardo da Vinci Fooled History and its sequel, The Templar Revelation.
She is also a lecturer and consultant on UFOs and the paranormal (Meridien/Anglia TV, Talk Radio, LBC, the Museum of Photography and the British UFO Research Association). She lives in London.
