Fundamentalism has recently emerged as one of the most powerful forces at work in the world, contesting the dominance of secular values and threatening peace and harmony around the globe. Yet it remains incomprehensible to a large number of people. "The Battle for God" brilliantly and sympathetically shows us how and why fundamentalist groups came into existence and what they yearn to accomplish.
Focusing on Protestant fundamentalism in the United States, Jewish fundamentalism in Israel, and Muslim fundamentalism in Egypt and Iran, Karen Armstrong examines the ways in which these movements have each sprung from a dread of modernity.
Blending history, sociology, and spirituality, "The Battle for God" is a compelling study of a radical form of religious expression that is critically shaping world history.
