As in his earlier books (Holy Blood, Holy Grail; The Jesus Papers), Baigent attempts to discover the darkish forceshiding within the shadows of faith and ferret out fundamentalists whose dogmatism frequently turns to violence. targeting the tip instances, he warns that robust fundamentalist sects in Christianity, Judaism and Islam are operating to result in the conflict of Armageddon, while the forces of darkness should be destroyed via the Messiah, who will then lead to a brand new reign. All 3 teams wish Jerusalem, the place every one lays declare to a actual spot, the Dome of the Rock, as a sacred position in its historical past; all 3 desire a nation during which politics are subservient to faith. Baigent makes a similar mistake that the fundamentalists make while studying the ebook of Revelation. it's not a e-book of prophecy and handbook for scary sinners again into the fold; it really is apocalyptic literature that makes use of symbols as mystery codes for the situation within the lives of first- and second-century Christians, providing them desire for escaping from their plights. unfortunately, Baigent's well-intentioned exposé seems to be little greater than a screed opposed to fundamentalism that's in accordance with a misreading of his significant textual content.
