Editorial Reviews

Review

'A remarkable book. Jesus the Master Builder makes a significant contribution to research, suggesting connections between megalithic, Pythagorean and early Christian traditions. To convey the full picture of the ancient world that Strachan is able to weave together is beyond the scope of this review. Suffice to say that this book is required reading for anyone with an interest in traditional cosmology.' -- Peter Westbrook, Cosmos 'Jesus the Master Builder kept me up all night. Few books have that power.' -- Jonathan Glancey, The Guardian 'Admirable for its authenticity, clarity and intelligence.' -- Matt Ewart, The Herald 'Will be seen as a work of singular significance.' -- The Scotsman 'A fascinating exploration, drawing on a wide range of sources to make some exciting and potentially revolutionary connections. Well-written and truly eye-opening.' -- Scientific and Medical Network Review

When you start to pick up this book, you feel like someone is trying to trick you by inserting a book about Jesus in the New Age section. And then you start reading and cannot put this down. Imagine that you are someone who doesn't really believe in Christianity the way it is sold, and that Jesus was one of the great profits or religious leaders, but still a man. Then, you pick this book up and start reading, and it makes so much sense, you could actually start another branch from Christianity, involving Druidry, and have a viable religion.

When you see the references to Jesus and the white robes he dressed in, all the way up to why St. John the Baptist would look at Jesus and tell him that Jesus should be baptizing him, all becomes clear. Jesus, was a Druid.

From the story of his uncle taking him to Avalon upon Jesus' father's death, to the fact that 20 years elapsed between his younger stories and his ministry, it is entirely possible, that the teachings of Jesus aligned with the teachings of ancient Druidry. Just the term translation of carpenter, and the serious work that Strachan has done, shows how things are continually thrown out of sequence and how this could be true.

If you don't believe in the myth of Jesus, this book comes closest to making story, if ever proved, be the one that has been cleaned up a great deal and taken completely out of context. This could make people believe that a real story existed.

A bit of a stretch to connect mathematical traditions and Celtic Christianity with Pythagorean and Platonic Ideas with Druidism. Although it is possible that there were commonalities between Theological Concepts of the Old and New Testament writers and some Druid ideas, including use of numbers, beyond that I do not think this produces validity with Pythagorean numerology. Fascinating but faulty premise.
