    • Sean Kingsley has a magical ability to take you with him and see through his eyes. I feel that I've walked with him in Rome and Instanbul and been gripped by his quest


    • A OK book on the mystery of what happened to the temple treasures after the sack of Jerusalem. The Author has some interesting theories but no facts to back it up. Also. He doesn't break any new ground. This book just rehashes old theories.It is a bit dry so if you are interested in the subject it might be a good read otherwise it will be boring


    • This book gives a comprehensive history of the travels of the holy treasures from the temple. It is deep and descriptive yet the ending is sorely lacking in facts to back up his final thesis of where the treasures are hidden.


    • This is the tale of the Treasures of King Solomon's Temple. There were four items housed therein: the Trumpets of Truth, the Table of the Showbread, the Menorah, and the Ark of the Covenant. In 584 B.C. the Babylonians captured Jerusalem and the Temple. The Ark of the Covenant is heard of no more. It disappeared from history. The trumpets, the table and the Menorah were taken to Babylon. They appear their on a stone carving marking the victory. 70 years later, Judah is allowed to return to Pales [...]


    • I've read Josephus' book on the Jewish War in response to some of the speculations propounded in this one. Sean Kingsley speculates on what might have become of the plunered golden table, Candlabra, and shells that were plundered by Titus after the fall of Jerusalem. It seems they traveled a lot--from Jerusalem to Rome, Carthage, Constantinople, and possibly back to Israel. Much of his reasoning is based on classical sources; there is little physical evidence, though Kingsley has dug up a couple [...]


    • When I started reading God's Gold I was allowing a few weeks to read it. But surprisingly I finished the book within a week. I think what helped was the way it was written. I was drawn in right at the beginning. The book was part travel and part history, but it was done in such a way, that I didn't notice the changes. It felt like I was the one who was visiting these exotic and culture rich locales.Now if what the author thinks is the absolute truth/fact, I do not know. But it was definitely a w [...]


    • Anyone one want to go to Tunisia, Constinople, or Jerusalem one day with me? Last month, I read a book like Da Vinci code searching for the Jewish antiquity menorah. this was a non-fiction account of man searching for the menorah. Now, I understand a little more about the constant troubles in the Middle East (in particular Jerusalem) and a little more of the plight of the Jewish people throughout history. The Jewish culture seems to be popping up in my life a lot lately. Not sure what that means [...]


    • This is a historical 'where is it?' as Kingsley takes us on the trail of the lost treasures of Jerusalem consisting of the Trumpets of Truth, the Table of the Showbread, the Menorah, and the Ark of the Covenant. In this book the Ark of the Covenant is not a big part of the mystery. Kingsley gives a comprehensive history lesson as he explains not just the politics of the past but current politics and their complexities. His theory as to the location is interesting. Yet the best question Kingsley [...]


    • You have got to love Biblical History and Archeaology to like this one. An interesting theory by an archealogist about where the remainder of the Holy of Holies relics might be hiding. Kingsley believes that the golden candelabrum, the silver trumpets and the bejeweled Divine Table, which through the centuries were plundered many times starting with the Roman invasions, are still intact and hidden. In the end he faces a dilemna as well.


    • Fun Historical detective work tracing the Temple treasures looted by the Romans from Jerusalem in 70 C.E. forward in time. I believe he is right up to a point after which he is off track. Still useful as documentation up to that point.


    • I put this one aside - a little slow and boring, but the subject matter interests me. I plan to go back to it someday.


    • i think the author loses track about half way through the book, both with regard to his hypothesis as well as with the story being a spellbinding read. about a 5.5 on a scale of 1-10.
