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 frequently turns to violence. concentrating on the tip 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 might be destroyed by way 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 background; all 3 desire a nation within which politics are subservient to faith. Baigent makes an analogous mistake that the fundamentalists make whilst interpreting the publication of Revelation. it's not a booklet 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, 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 line with a misreading of his valuable textual content.
