The Hiram Key is a book that will shake the Christian world to its very roots.

As a radically new picture of Jesus started to emerge, the authors came to the startling conclusion that the key rituals of modern Freemasonry were practiced by the early followers of Jesus as a means of initiation into their community.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not convinced at all While there are some interesting points proven by facts and logic, a lot of it is quite a stretch to say the least. This is no earth-shaking revelation by any means.
