Now, you can discover the ancient truths that have been hidden for thousands of years and are now revealed in a thrilling tale, when you read The Lost Scrolls of King Solomon by Richard Behrens.

The Lost Scrolls of King Solomon begins when Benjamin Stein, on a plane bound for Israel, befriends an old rabbi. Clutched in the old man's hands is a mysterious black leather cylinder―a cylinder that contains the lost scrolls of King Solomon himself. Written in code and cryptic verse, the scrolls reveal the locations of religious artifacts needed to train the coming messiah for his mission here on Earth.

Stein joins the rabbi's quest. What follows is a spiritual odyssey of Homeric proportions, filled with demons, angels, mystical illusions, Satan, and the magical power of an ancient king.

Will the powerful Mossad stop them before their quest is complete? Will desert bandits brutally murder them in order to steal and sell the priceless relics found by the seekers?

Journey along with this reluctant hero as he discovers arcane secrets of existence, never-before-told mystical techniques, his own destiny, and the messiah's surprising identity. At the same time, you will learn amazing spiritual truths that will change your life and the way you look at your existence forever.

Although presented as fiction, the techniques used in The Lost Scrolls of King Solomon are real and powerful. A separate section gives numerous techniques and exercises you can use today to start you on your path to personal enlightenment.

The Lost Scrolls of King Solomon is a book as exciting as an Indiana Jones movie and reveals more secrets than The Celestine Prophecies. For an exciting novel filled with spiritual insight that can help you on your path, get The Lost Scrolls of King Solomon.

Review:

The Lost Scrolls of King Solomon follows the physical and spiritual journeys of Benjamin Stein, an orthodox Jew, who chose to study history rather than become a rabbi.

While a martial-arts discipline helps satisfy the yearnings cultivated in Stein as a youth, he is increasingly plagued by bizarre nightmares. His sensei encourages him to seek his roots--his boyhood religion in Israel.

Stein is immersed in a dangerous quest for relics hidden by King Solomon for the Messiah who would come at the end time. He is accompanied in this quest by a Jewish Rabbi and an Arab family.

Author Richard Behrens manages to work most of the standard quest motifs into this fast-paced tale. The artifact retrieved in the first outing is critical to successfully beginning the second. Riddles make appearances in several locations--one time in the form of a contest. One outing produces an artifact whose only purpose is to test Stein's resolve, and another produces nothing other than its impact on Stein's character. Like other authors who have depicted tours of Hell and Heaven (the obvious Dante, and the Niven and Pournelle version Inferno likely familiar to Behrens's readers), swipes are taken at contemporary figures along with men, women, and demons from ancient tales.

Throughout, Stein receives instruction from an array of otherwordly creatures. Their names are familiar to readers of sacred texts such as the Tanakh, the Christian Bible, and the Koran, but their characters prove to be rather different than fundamentalists of any stripe typically depicted. A lot of the fun is in seeing how that is made to fit with the received texts.

While any level of familiary with Kabbalah probably would help to understand the worldview informing this novel, it's not really necessary. Whether raised Jewish, Christian, or Muslim, you'll get enough of the references to get a bang out of this tale. Great literature? Not really, and it probably won't attract the sort of dedicated following that Robert Anton Wilson's efforts have, but it's a fun little romp through blasphemous territory. There's even an appendix at the back so you can try the breathing exercises used by the protagonist throughout the book to succeed in his quest.--Rebecca Allen
