In Association with
The Deeper Truth
by Richard Russell Cassaro
Expresses in great detail Richard Cassaro’s hypothesis that Christ appeared in the flesh not just in Israel 2000 years ago, but also in Egypt 10,000 years ago, in the figure known to history as the god Osiris. Cassaro explores the similarities between the two figures in their teachings, practices, symbols that they used, and even their physical appearances, as well as, of course, the religions that were founded after them. Cassaro also shows elements of Mormon tradition that confirm his theory, and makes an excellent case for the postulate that monarchy was installed on Earth by God himself as the most perfect form of government. Excellent work, and lots of good pictures too.

The Passover Plot
by Dr. Hugh Schonfield
Explores the concept that Christ purposely became the Messiah by enacting messianic prophecies from the Torah. It even speculates that he faked his death on the cross by using a narcotic drug (hidden in the vinegar that was squeezed into his mouth from a sponge just prior to his "death") that created a zombie-like state of catatonia, allowing him to "rise from the dead" three days later, as prophesized. This was accomplished not with the help of his twelve disciples, but via a conspiracy that included Nicodemus and Joseph of Arimathea. This book is excellent, and provided much of the central thesis behind Holy Blood, Holy Grail.
