The Bribe of Great Price

product image
$13.95
In this masterful book, Bart Pierce exposes the greatest scandal in history. He chronicles the radical plot of supernatural forces to silence the voices of truth. Over two millennia ago, a Roman soldier and The Bribe of Great Price spawned the greatest cover up in history. The Bribe quietly survived the rise and fall of dictators, parliaments, Kingdoms, Empires and Nations. In a post-modern era, it openly employs the sciences, political systems, religion and mass media. Due to an elaborate deception, even the Church has aided in this conspiracy. This book is definitely a page-turner for every believer, seeker and conspiracy theorist alike. It is an unforgettable journey!"
