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. concentrating on the tip instances, he warns that strong fundamentalist sects in Christianity, Judaism and Islam are operating to result in the conflict of Armageddon, while the forces of darkness can be destroyed via 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 background; all 3 desire a kingdom within which politics are subservient to faith. Baigent makes an identical mistake that the fundamentalists make whilst studying the ebook of Revelation. it isn't 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, 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 response to a misreading of his significant textual content.
