I wanted to read this book because it was the sequel to "Holy Blood Holy Grail" but I was disappointed that much of the book did not deal with the same issues of the first volume. Even though most of the ideas have been disproven, they are still provocative and intriguing. However, The Messianic Legacy fell short for me.
This book is a very poor follow-up of the book "Holy Blood, Holy Grail" by the same authors. "Holy Blood, Holy Grail" presents substanial amounts of opinion and speculation as fact. "Messianic Legacy" does nothing to correct that failure while adding virtually nothing of substance. Some claims the authors make in both books contradict the New Testament without citing remotely reliable sources from the early Christian era.
