As Jesus Christ hung on the cross a Roman centurion pieced the Saviorís side with his spear. A legend has arisen that -- whosoever possesses this Holy Lance and understands the powers it serves, holds in his hand the destiny of the world for good or evil. -- SECRETS OF THE HOLY LANCE traces the Spear from its possession by Constantine, Rome's first Christian Caesar, to Charlemagne's claim that with it he ruled the Holy Roman Empire by Divine Right, and on through two thousand years of kings and emperors, until it came within Hitler's grasp--and beyond! Did it rest for a while in Antarctic ice? Is it now hidden in Europe, awaiting the next person to claim its awesome power? Neither debunking nor worshiping, SECRETS OF THE HOLY LANCE seeks to pierce the veil of myth and mystery around the Spear. Mere belief that it was infused with magic by virtue of its shedding the Savior's blood has made men kings. But what if it's more? What are the powers it serves?

In one of the most eagerly anticipated roll-outs of the summer season "Secrets of the Holy Lance: The Spear Of Destiny In History & Legend" is finally on its way to bookstores across North America!

Smith and Piccard are two fiercely independent journalists. Coming from a point of view that is neither debunking nor worshiping, in "Secrets of the Holy Lance: The Spear Of Destiny In History & Legend," they have created an eminently readable book that weaves together the many threads of the Spear of Destiny's legend like no book before it ever has!

What is this "Holy Lance"? According to the Gospel of John in the New Testament, as Jesus Christ hung on the Cross a Roman centurion pierced His side with a spear. A legend has arisen that "whosoever possesses this Holy Lance and understands the powers it serves, holds in his hand the destiny of the world for good or evil."

Also called the Spear of Destiny, this strange relic has been written about for nearly two thousand years. Trevor Ravenscroft captured the world's attention with his 1982 opus "The Spear of Destiny." Later that decade Col. Howard Buechner released two books that became underground classics, "Hitler's Ashes" and "Adolf Hitler and the Secrets of the Holy Lance." These picked up where Ravenscroft left off, with the Spear leaving Europe to hide for a while beneath the ice of Antarctica. Since then the Spear of Destiny has appeared in scholarly tomes, novels, and even comic books: including "Indiana Jones And The Spear Of Destiny," "Hellboy," and "Hellblazer," which gave us this year's box office hit "Constantine."

"Secrets of the Holy Lance" places this legend against the backdrop of world history: from its mythical creation by Tubal-Cain, seventh generation grandson of Adam, to its appearance at the Crucifixion; its use by Constantine, Rome's first Christian Caesar; to Charlemagne's claim that with it he ruled the Holy Roman Empire by Divine Right; and on through twelve hundred years of kings and emperors, until it came within Adolf Hitler's grasp -- and beyond! Did it really rest for a while in Antarctic ice? Was the last battle of World War II actually fought in secret at the South Pole? Is The Holy Lance now hidden in Europe, awaiting the next person to claim its power to shape the destiny of mankind? Or is it just an old spearhead, with no powers of its own?

"Secrets of the Holy Lance," an unbiased, comprehensive study of the history of the Spear of Destiny, seeks to pierce the veil of myth and mystery that surrounds it. Mere belief that it was infused with magic by virtue of its shedding the Savior's Blood has made men kings. But what if it's more? What are those "powers it serves"?

Topics include: The Christ Mind; The Holy Grail; The Templar Knights, Nazi Occultism: Blood Lodges & Secret Orders; Agharta, Shambhala & Atlantis; Nazi UFOs; Operation Paperclip; Testing The Spear; Operation Highjump, Station 211 & The Battle For Neuschwabenland; The Hartmann Expedition; The Rise Of The Fourth Reich; The Secret Of The Spear; Where Is The Spear Now?
