Synopsis

Based on exhaustive research and written with an unflinching, unbiased eye, Making War in the Name of God unveils humanity's ancient habit of justifying bloodshed in the name of religion - and exposes a past that seems doomed to repeat itself every day in the morning headlines and every night on the evening news. From the first Jihads of the seventh century and the Crusades of the Middle Ages, to the wars of the Reformation and the sectarian violence of today, Catherwood traces the fascinating history of holy war in a sobering look at the connection between war and religion.
