'In the West the idea that religion is inherently violent is now taken for granted.' This well-researched title looks back to the origins of all the major religions in agrarian societies where competition for land was intense and violent; charts the co-option of the Christian Church as an instrument of state power by Constantine; and finds hope in the pacific, mystical traditions present in all great faiths. American-cut pages, felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge and off-mint.
