In the tradition of "Holy Blood, Holy Grail"; "The Gnostic Gospels"; and "The Bible Code," "The Sign," written by former Cambridge University art historian Thomas de Wesselow, solves one of the great mysteries of human history--how did Christianity take off so quickly, so convincingly, after the death of Jesus? The answer is as provocative and controversial as it is convincing, and it will shed new light on the historical record of Christianity's birth. Focusing on archaeological sources, reinterpreting well-known Biblical passages, and mixing historical detective work with cutting-edge scientific research, de Wesselow takes readers on an eye-opening and profound journey that promises to turn upside-down our understanding of the last two thousand years.
