The Hiram Key: Pharaohs, Freemasons, and The Discovery of The Secret Scrolls of Jesus by Christopher Knight

This book, if you can get past the angry anti- Christian, anti-Jewish comments that are thrown about, is very entertaining. Some of their conclusions seem to take great leaps, but it was worth the read anyway. Claims Qumran community and Jesus were early Freemasons following Egypt's king-making ceremonies and King Seqenenre Tao II (who they claim is the "original" Hiram Abif). Books by these authors always seem to be written in a style which carries the reader from discovery to discovery, building upon the previous ones. It is well written in that sense, but again, far-reaching.
