How and why was the Great Pyramid of Giza built? What was its purpose? What about the Sphinx? Are there clues today that will allow us to understand its meaning? Breshears takes us through these questions and provides interesting answers based on years of meticulous studies. His work brings us into various holy books, the study of ancient symbols and into the oldest known writings of ancient Egypt. After exploring every part of the pyramid both inside and out, the author reveals how it connects to history and how we can make future predictions based on the patterns he has deciphered. He advances the theory that all major cataclysms of the past occurred at specifically predicable times, and predicts when the next world-wide catastrophe will come. If his predictions are accurate -- and history seems to bear this out -- then we may need to prepare for what is coming.

“Whoever finds the interpretation of these sayings will not experience death.” -from the Gospel of Thomas The work of scholars such as Elaine Pagels and Marvin Meyer have captured the imagination of the public by setting forth the Gospel of Thomas and other lost teachings of Jesus. Now Peter Novak, in Original Christianity, brings forth a critical element essential for fully understanding these scriptures. Novak argues that the authors of these early texts subscribed to the Binary Soul Doctrine--an ancient belief system that allows for both reincarnation and an eternal afterlife. Novak’s interdisciplinary approach offers fresh insights on the beliefs and politics of the early church founders. He points out that reincarnation was a commonly held Christian belief until it was voted out of “official” Christianity and the record expunged. This newfound key reveals the true identities of many mysterious Biblical figures, such as Lazarus, Barabbas, Judas, and especially the Apostle Thomas, who may not only have been Jesus’ identical twin brother, but indeed a second Christ in his own right, who lived to produce a genetically identical bloodline. More important still, the rediscovery of the lost theology of Original Christianity means Christ’s central message of personal integrity can again take center stage.

The novel is set sometime in the very near future---a future much closer than anyone can imagine. The Lost Scriptures of Islam prophesied the birth of THE JIHADA. They foretell of how The Second Coming of the Prophet himself (as written in the Quran) will bring about the destruction of all non believers of the faith. The JIHADA brings about this destruction by pitting Muslims throughout the world against all other religions. The world retaliates against Islam, and the nightmare vision of World War 3 becomes the reality which could spell the end of all human life on Earth. As you read the novel, you will begin to realise that the war by Islam against the rest of the world is just beginning, and is taking place before our very eyes--- beheadings in the streets---the call for Jihad in the mosques--- Islamic warfare on the news whenever we switch on the TV.

One man’s quest to find the oldest Bible scrolls in the world and uncover the story of the brilliant, doomed antiquarian accused of forging them. In the summer of 1883, Moses Wilhelm Shapira—archaeological treasure hunter and inveterate social climber—showed up unannounced in London claiming to have discovered the oldest copy of the Bible in the world. But before the museum could pony up his £1 million asking price for the scrolls—which discovery called into question the divine authorship of the scriptures—Shapira’s nemesis, the French archaeologist Charles Clermont-Ganneau, denounced the manuscripts, turning the public against him. Distraught over this humiliating public rebuke, Shapira fled to the Netherlands and committed suicide. Then, in 1947 the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered. Noting the similarities between these and Shapira’s scrolls, scholars made efforts to re-examine Shapira’s case, but it was too late: the primary piece of evidence, the parchment scrolls themselves had mysteriously vanished. Tigay, journalist and son of a renowned Biblical scholar, was galvanized by this peculiar story and this indecipherable man, and became determined to find the scrolls. He sets out on a quest that takes him to Australia, England, Holland, Germany where he meets Shapira’s still aggrieved descendants and Jerusalem where Shapira is still referred to in the present tense as a “Naughty boy”. He wades into museum storerooms, musty English attics, and even the Jordanian gorge where the scrolls were said to have been found all in a tireless effort to uncover the truth about the scrolls and about Shapira, himself. At once historical drama and modern-day mystery, The Lost Book of Moses explores the nineteenth-century disappearance of Shapira’s scrolls and Tigay's globetrotting hunt for the ancient manuscript. As it follows Tigay’s trail to the truth, the book brings to light a flamboyant, romantic, devious, and ultimately tragic personality in a story that vibrates with the suspense of a classic detective tale.
