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 top instances, he warns that robust fundamentalist sects in Christianity, Judaism and Islam are operating to result in the conflict of Armageddon, whilst the forces of darkness might be destroyed by means of 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 desire a nation during which politics are subservient to faith. Baigent makes an identical mistake that the fundamentalists make while interpreting the publication of Revelation. it's not a booklet of prophecy and guide 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 in keeping with a misreading of his imperative textual content.
