"In their exciting new book Opening the Ark of the Covenant, Frank Joseph and Laura Beaudoin amass an almost staggering amount of scholarly research. But no reader, experienced or novice to works of such magnitude, should be put off by the multilayered investigations revealed in this book. The text moves along with dramatic twists and turns and surprises, and readers will find themselves literally swept away by one astonishing revelation after another.

Joseph and Beaudoin discover the "ark" first as an amazing power source in the ancient land of Lemuria, then follow it to Atlantis, Egypt, Jerusalem, France, and its possible present resting place. Whether this instrument of unmeasurable spiritual and physical power is known as the Phoenix Stone, the Fire Stone, the Transformer of the World, the Emerald Tablet, or the Ark of the Covenant, it has been guarded throughout its vast history by such mysterious secret societies as the Tuoaic Brotherhood of Atlantis, the Watchers of Giza, the Levite Priesthood, the Order of the Holy Sepulcher, the Templars, the Cathars, or the Ville-Maries. Truly, this superb work will convince the most aloof reader that the Stone of Destiny, wherever its present location, retains its power and continues to shape the future of the world."

Brad Steiger, author of Atlantis Rising and Revelation: The Divine Fire

  • Author Frank Joseph

    Frank Joseph is the author of The Atlantis Encyclopedia (New Page Books), as well as a dozen other books on history, prehistory, and metaphysics. He has been the editor-in-chief of Ancient American magazine since its first issue in 1993. He lives in Wisconsin.

  • Author Laura Beaudoin

Through his worldwide research into its disappearance, author Frank Joseph has learned that the Ark was not a mere legend; nor was it just an elaborate box used to store the original Ten Commandments. It was, he asserts, purpose-built to harness the powers of the Earth for humanity’s continued physical existence and spiritual evolutions.

Brad Steiger, author of Atlantis Rising and Revelation: The Divine Fire
"Opening the Ark of the Covenant, take us on a whirlwind journey filled with people of many cultures, with places around the world, and with things that ultimately are part of one of humankind's greatest mysteries. What exactly is the Ark of the Covenant? Where did it come from? Where is it now? The answers you find in this new work will surprise, excite and sometimes perhaps even frighten you, but will always hold you tightly and in focus. The Ark of many names, the cultures of many faces, the particulars of various individuals and their roles in the mystery all come together here to prove that neither history nor the future are any longer what they used to be."
Lee Pennington, JOLE Productions, Producer of archaeological documentaries, including Petroglyphs of Polynesia and Vikings in America
"In a thorough effort, author Frank Joseph weaves a tapestry with world wide weft threads of human memory woven into warp threads of 11,600 years. The resulting depiction of the travels of the Ark of the Covenant reveals many new facets for closer examination. Joseph, who follows a consistent belief about the powers of the stone within the Ark, skillfully weaves past and recent events into the image."
