Praise for Bloodline of the Holy Grail:
“A controversial and uniquely comprehensive book of Messianic descent, compiled from the most intriguing histories ever written.”
Publishing News
“This book, provocative as it may be, is not a work of fiction, but the product of years of painstaking research. Committed Christians will find it casts fascinating light on the origins of their beliefs.”
Daily Mail

In what turned out to be a colossal tease, Laurence Gardner, in his second major work, Genesis of the Grail Kings, gave us a brief description of a curious white powder produced in ancient Egypt that had phenomenal gravitational, transformational and inspirational powers. The substance was the result of a secret process whereby gold and platinum group metals were transformed into a white powder which the Egyptians called MFKZT (pronounced muf-kutz). The powder, though derived from heavy metals, had a negative weight (less than zero), and transmitted the same weightlessness to its container. When ingested, the powder brought heightened spiritual awareness to its user, and it supposedly could transport itself or its user into a different time/space dimension, called the Field of MFKZT, or the Plane of Shar-on. The inference was made that MFKZT provided the technical ability to lift all of the millions of multi-ton blocks into place in the Giza Pyramids, and that the Field of MFKZT was the final destination of the Pharaohs after their earthly existence.
Partly due to the reaction by his reading public, Gardner promised a whole book on the subject, but, in the meantime, came out with another book (Realm of the Ring Lords), which, while very interesting, didn't add to the information about MFKZT he had given us in his previous book. At long last, Gardner has kept his word, and has published Lost Secrets of the Sacred Ark.
Lost Secrets of the Sacred Ark is Gardner's account of the famous Ark of the Covenant. In relating the fascinating information about the Ark, Gardner gives us a comprehensive explanation of the whole concept of MFKZT, its role in the powers of the Ark, and its history through the ages, including up to the present day.

Format: Hardcover
International best-selling author Laurence Gardner, has fulfilled all expectations with this well researched and scholarly approach to a mystery that spans thousands of years.
Gardner's contention is that the Biblical Ark of the Covenant was in reality: a capacitor that made it a powerful and deadly weapon, a superconductor that allowed it to levitate above ground, and a machine for manufacturing a substance called "Mfkzt" by the ancient Egyptians, "manna" by the Hebrews, and the "philosophers stone" by alchemists. At first glance, these propositions seem preposterous, and yet, after following his trail of logic, one wonders how it could have been anything other than what he insists it was.
A 1904 expedition to Mount Horeb (which the King James Version of the bible claims was the place Moses received the Ten Commandments) discovered the ruins of an Egyptian temple with hundreds of artifacts including: huge statues, obelisks, round tables, crucibles, vases and wands, and most significantly tons of a white powder conceled beneath flagstone. Through his research Gardner has ascertained that this white substance called "mfkzt" was a monotomic powdered gold.
By a special process of arc heating, gold and other platinum group metals, can be turned into a single atom or monotomic substance, that has superconductive properties. Superconductive materials are capable of leviation above magnetic fields, and Gardner speculates, that the powdered substance contained in the ark might have given it such capabilities. How else, he asks would it have been possible for four men to carry the ark when the lid alone, which was made of pure gold, has been calculated to have weighed around 2,714 pounds.

Laurence Gardner's credentials are impeccable, and his latest work will further enhance his reputation as the top scholar in his field. "Lost Secret of the Sacred Ark" came about by popular demand from readers who were intrigued by his references in previous books to such terms as shewbread, highward fire stone and even the Philosopher's Stone. Gardner has uncovered a different purpose for the Ark of the Covenant than that we have been led to believe by benighted clerics. The real use for the Ark was that of a scientific nature, a gold-laden capacitor with an "arc" able to manufacture a mysterious substance. This substance was not the transmutation of baser metal into gold but of gold being turned into a miracle medicine, with the ability also to manipulate space-time and prized above all else in antiquity. Beginning at an Egyptian temple in the Sinai Peninsula, the author takes us on a tour of ancient civilizations who so long ago practiced hyperdimensional physics that we are just now realizing. Our journey takes us from ancient temples to modern laboratories today, and we learn that temples then were not for the worship of gods but were the workshops for the gods. Gardner's writing affords us a new perspective on events in biblical times as well as an understanding of quantum mechanics. The book contains credible and impressive source citations, a comprehensive bibliography, and appendices ranging from ancient genealogies to current gold standards. I believe this book is the most meaningful revelation since the splitting of the atom because this secret can not only heal disease but it can literally move mountains. Highly recommended.
