Publisher's Summary

Why do the Ark of the Covenant, Mary's reliquary box, and Jesus' coffer all have the same imagery? Was the Ark the container of the Covenant, the Ten Commandments, or the Chalice? Does the image on the Shroud of Turin contain a bioelectric field? These questions and others are explored in The Ark, The Shroud, and Mary. In this unique and thought-provoking work, Philip Gardiner proves that the Ark of the Covenant, the Shroud of Turin, and Mary are united in ways never before imagined. Traveling across the world, from Rome to India, Portugal to Egypt, Gardiner uncovers the trail of the Ark and finds that it does not lead to Ethiopia, as many believe, but instead in a direction that nobody could have imagined. The trail of the Ark takes Gardiner on a hunt into the very heart of an ancient secret society with clandestine meetings in far off lands. Uniting the myth, tradition, and language of the Ark with the Shroud of Turin, Gardiner then goes on to re-date it, reveal how it was made, and identify whose image it actually recreates. Through his new-found contacts in the world of secret societies, Gardiner then shows how this incredible secret was protected by a dual brotherhood throughout time and was the secret source of the enlightenment spoken of by numerous orders, from the Sufis to the Knights Templar. The Ark, The Shroud, and Mary outshines The Da Vinci Code for the simple reason that it is the factual story of one man's fight to uncover the truth.

New age, old rubbish

If you are looking for an album of dodgy music with a few words of dodgy theorising (sorry if that makes it sound vaguely intellectual - this "book" is completely unsullied by intellect!), then look no further.

After many years of 'Audible' membership, I can safely say this book is the worst I have listened to. In defense of the author it should be mentioned that this unabridged drivel is also the shortest I have come across.

I can't give a zero so it gets one star

If the fact that this is a badly written, appaulling pile of drivel isn't enough, you can lose yourself in the likes of Marilyn Mason style backing tracks ever 30 seconds.
Not sure what you were trying to do here but if it was irritate the living soul out of me you definitely succeeded.
Its also taken me about a year to get round to reviewing this, it was the first time I could be bothered.
