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 frequently turns to violence. targeting the top occasions, he warns that robust fundamentalist sects in Christianity, Judaism and Islam are operating to lead to the conflict of Armageddon, while the forces of darkness might be destroyed by way of 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 background; all 3 desire a nation within which politics are subservient to faith. Baigent makes an analogous mistake that the fundamentalists make while examining the e-book of Revelation. it isn't a e-book of prophecy and guide for scary sinners again into the fold; it truly is apocalyptic literature that makes use of symbols as mystery codes for the scenario within the lives of first- and second-century Christians, providing 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 keeping with a misreading of his principal textual content.
