Summary
For the first time in American history, religious self-identification is declining. Some cite a post-9/11 perception that faith in general is a source of aggression, intolerance, and divisiveness. But how accurate is that view? And does it apply equally to all faiths? With her deep learning and sympathetic understanding, Karen Armstrong examines the impulse toward violence in each of the world's great religions
Summary
Provides a sweeping exploration of religion's connection to violence, from the agrarian societies of early civilized man to the growing post-9/11 disillusionment with religion.
