The Revelation of King Arthur by Robert Bruce Fruehling
As appealing as the front cover is, nothing could prepare the reader for the scope of information covered in a mere 178 pages. (WinePress really does have some of the best cover designers in the business!) While editing, I frequently make a common notation on manuscripts-make every word count. Fruehling has mastered this skill. In fact, each word was so significant and enlighting that I began studying other resources that he made mention of. His presentation was flawless and the flow was uncharacteristically smooth and well researched. Although I've never been a huge fan of literature pertaining to King Arthur, Fruehling offered the material in an irresistible and intoxicating fashion.
Fruehling begins his text by introducing the audience to themselves. He offers a satisfying argument regarding basic human nature that sets the ground work for the remainder of the data presented. Once he establishes how effortless the average Christian could be deceived and punctuates that theory with the reminder of Hitler and the massacre of the Jews as proof, Fruehling explains the guards account (of why the tomb is empty after Christ has risen) which is also known as The Legend of the Holy Grail. As the legend is investigated and exposed, it's easy to acknowledge how the invention of this tale is linked to King Arthur, and to the authors own deduction of how all of this relates to the inauguration of the anti-Christ.
While reading, terms such as whistle-blower and prophetic academician often came to mind. However, Fruehling's sole motive in writing The Revelation of King Arthur is not to rebuke or lecture. I believe he offers a convincing association between the guards account and Bible prophecy.
The information may be expansive but it is easily understood. The Revelation of King Arthur is a stimulating introduction to a subject that could take a lifetime of research to exhaust. Fruehling discloses many sources for those wanting to proceed with further study. Highly researched, highly provocative, highly recommended!
