The Last Templar

This is a book I borrowed from the library, I originally saw it displayed in bookstore and thought it would be interesting to read. It's along the lines of National Treasures but I found it really hard to read. I had it for six weeks and I've only read a quarter of the book.

I had to return the book, since someone else put it on hold. I've requested it again and will get it in three weeks.

My experience with "The Brotherhood of the Holy Shroud"... I gave up on it because of it being too formulaic and predictable. Also, it bothered me that the translation to English from Spanish is so stilted and too "provincial" in a few places. There were also some glaring historical errors such as how early Christians (1st century C.E.) greeted each other. The book (written by a Catholic Spaniard) claims they bless each other with a cross gesture to commemorate Jesus' crucifixion when early Christians didn't use or even venerate the Cross. Their symbol was the sign of the fish.
