From Publishers Weekly
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 occasions, he warns that strong fundamentalist sects in Christianity, Judaism and Islam are operating to lead to the conflict of Armageddon, whilst the forces of darkness may be destroyed by means of the Messiah, who will then result in a brand new reign. All 3 teams wish Jerusalem, the place each one lays declare to a actual spot, the Dome of the Rock, as a sacred position in its heritage; all 3 need a kingdom within which politics are subservient to faith. Baigent makes a similar mistake that the fundamentalists make while interpreting the e-book of Revelation. it's not 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 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 principal textual content.
