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 usually turns to violence. concentrating on the tip occasions, 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 through 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 nation during which politics are subservient to faith. Baigent makes an analogous mistake that the fundamentalists make while studying the booklet of Revelation. it's not a e-book of prophecy and guide for scary sinners again into the fold; it really is apocalyptic literature that makes use of symbols as mystery codes for the scenario within the lives of first- and second-century Christians, delivering 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 line with a misreading of his relevant textual content.
