Item Description...
A journalist tells of his quest to find the Ark of the Covenant, how he traced it to a remote corner of war-torn Ethiopia, and the significance of the Ark and its mysterious disappearance

Publishers Description
The fact of the Lost Ark of the Covenant is one of the grant historical mysteries of all time. To believers, the Ark is the legendary vesel holding the stone tablets of the Ten Commandments. The Bible contains hundreds of references to the Ark's power to level mountains, destroy armies, and lay waste to cities. The Ark itself, however, mysteriously disappears from recorded history sometime after the building of the Temple of Solomon.
After ten years of searching through the dusty archives of Europe and the Middle East, as well as braving the real-life dangers of a bloody civil war in Ethiopia, Graham Hancock has succeeded where scores of others have failed. This intrepid journalist has tracked down the true story behind the myths and legends -- revealing where the Ark is today, how it got there, and why it remains hidden.
Part fascinating scholarship and part entertaining adventure yarn, tying together some of the most intriguing tales of all time -- from the Knights Templar and Prester John to Parsival and the Holy Grail -- this book will appeal to anyone fascinated by the revelation of hidden truths, the discovery of secret mysteries.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Forget about Indiana Jones - this is better than that  Jan 11, 2008
An excellent book, very well-sourced. I was gratified to see Hancock citing evidence/clues/references from a very wide selection: scholarly papers, published Freemason lore, Arthurian grail lore, the Biblical account, Jewish lore, Josephus, interviews with scholars and experts, etc. You have to give the man credit for backing up his theories with evidence.

I am less comfortable with his section on what the Ark was. As he disallows that it manifested the power of God, he suggests magic or lost ancient engineering knowledge instead. Frankly, I find the Biblical account more believable. But this section takes away but a little from the overall enjoyment I've gotten from this work.

Prior to reading this I knew nothing about the history and spirituality of Ethiopia; I now feel better versed in it.

I have read a review that because the author wasn't allowed to see the Ark in the St. Mary Church in Axum, this work is diminished. What could he do, save attempt to break in? This would instantly take him out of the field of historical researcher and into the realm of crackpot. So, no, the book isn't diminished simply because the work is open-ended.

Well worth reading. It pushes pop culture and Indiana Jones far to the back of your head.

Inspiring adventure  Nov 18, 2007
Following the trail of the mystery was almost as exciting as reading the The Da Vinci Code and knowing it was a real story made it inspiring. Although the ending in Brown's book was more satisfying than in this one, the search for facts to support his theory did inspire me to write my own detective style historical book Noah's Ark, Discovering the Science of Man's Oldest Mystery. So thanks for the information concerning the Falasha Jews and opening my eyes to an exciting style of investigative history writing.
~~~~~~~~~Just But It~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  Jun 16, 2007
Graham Hancock is a master at storytelling and this is non-fiction to boot. If you're an Indiana Jones fan or a fan in general of religious artifacts and their extraordinary powers, then this is definately one book you don't want to miss. At least in Indy is/was fictional, made up, and good. Here Mr. Hancock weaves the non-fiction in a adventurous way, so you feel like you are actually there with him doing the research. Let me tell you, I am a believer! If the vatican doesn't have it, then this is definately where the ark is!
I am glad someone wrote this  May 5, 2007
The authors search for the Lost Ark of the Covenant often puts him at odds with the scientific and religious establishment. The phrase "In for a penny, In for a pound" has never been more apt. There are many things in the bible and ancient history that just don't add up and most people are afraid to cite the obvious. The author fearlessly goes where most researchers are afraid to go.
It is certain that the Old Testament is a chronical of amazing events. These stories were already ancient history when the bible was compiled. I agree with the author that there was a civilization that had attained a sophisticated level of technology, the remnants of which, are responsible for the sudden appearance of the roots of civilization as we know it

I disagree with the reviewer who calls this type of inquiry silly. it is important to have an open mind and to risk being ridiculed to get at the truth.

I think Hancock found the Lost Ark and how it arrived in Africa
