“Whenever my efforts to provide an explanation for this strange undertaking succeeded, i'd constantly listen, ‘Oh i am getting it. You’re writing Cliffs Notes for Karl Rahner!’ I’m definite the writers of Cliffs Notes might say an identical factor approximately their paintings as I do approximately mine. it isn't meant to alternative for analyzing Rahner’s Theological Investigations. to the contrary I basically wish this reference ebook will open his treasure trove of essay either to the coed in addition to to different critical readers of theology. everybody accustomed to Rahner’s nice 23-volume Theological Investigations understands the sequence is difficult to take advantage of since it lacks a key. The titles frequently fail to explain the contents of the essays competently; there is not any cumulative index in English; the present indices on the finish of every quantity are tedious and didn't distinguish major discussions of a subject from informal references; and in need of wading via a whole essay there's no option to understand speedy even if it includes the cloth one is seeking. This publication makes an attempt to deal with those problems.” — From the Introduction.

As in his prior 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 usually turns to violence. targeting the tip instances, he warns that strong fundamentalist sects in Christianity, Judaism and Islam are operating to result in the conflict of Armageddon, whilst the forces of darkness should be destroyed by way of the Messiah, who will then result in 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 heritage; all 3 desire a kingdom during which politics are subservient to faith. Baigent makes an identical mistake that the fundamentalists make whilst studying the booklet of Revelation. it isn't a ebook of prophecy and guide for scary sinners again into the fold; it's apocalyptic literature that makes use of symbols as mystery codes for the scenario within the lives of first- and second-century Christians, supplying them wish 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.
