From Publishers Weekly
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. concentrating on the top instances, 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 can be destroyed through the Messiah, who will then lead to 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 country during which politics are subservient to faith. Baigent makes an analogous mistake that the fundamentalists make whilst examining the e-book of Revelation. it isn't a publication of prophecy and handbook 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, 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 according to a misreading of his important textual content.
