This book explained to me everything I suspected was true. This book opened my eyes to an incredible deception on religions of the world.

The initial premise is intriguing: How religious scriptures and practices support intolerance, violence and even war.

No doubt this approach is controversial for many people, but for the rest of us, this book probably offers the best discussion of the world's religions available.

This book gives insights into the world's main religions and offers a deeper appreciation and specially UNDERSTANDING for the belief you and me have chosen as a living way.

The author shows how churches use manipulation of ideas to justify violence. You will discover by the hand of the author how the religion is the primary cause of war, violence of all kinds and bloodshed.

If we could eliminate religion, we would be well on the road to peace on earth and good will toward men.

Through the pages, the author looks at the beliefs and practices of many different religions all over the world.

With the knowledge presented, you can learn about the how the religious leaders and their teachings manipulate at his own convenience every scripture to justify the violence agains the others.

Every page give the reader an absorbing, respectful introduction to the major religions of the world and their hidden ideas about abuse, violence and war. I can't imagine how a better job could have been done.

Finally, I think this book means a tremendous gift to the men, women, and children affected directly or indirectly by religious abuse and intolerance.

Even when the matter is complicated and controversial the author use clear and direct explanations, and an inviting format.

I highly recommend this book to you. you will not be disappointed.
