From Publishers Weekly
As in his past 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 occasions, he warns that robust fundamentalist sects in Christianity, Judaism and Islam are operating to lead to the conflict of Armageddon, whilst the forces of darkness may be destroyed through 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 need a kingdom within which politics are subservient to faith. Baigent makes a similar mistake that the fundamentalists make while analyzing the e-book of Revelation. it isn't a booklet 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, 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 vital textual content.
