A leading religion and mid–East expert presents a much–needed analysis of the factors of corruption in religion that lead to evil and violence in the world. Working across traditions and through history, he shows how all religious traditions are susceptible to five basic corruptions and why only authentic faith can prevent such evil.

Religious persuasions are indisputably central factors in the escalation of evil and violence on the global scene?d hence a growing subject of popular concern and debate. Many argue that religion is the chief source of problems in the world today. Central to this debate is the need to distinguish between "corrupt" forms of religious expression and the "authentic" forms that offer real correctives and solutions to this global threat.

Religion and mid–East politics expert Charles Kimball offers a timely examination of the nature and signs of religious evil. while outlining the correctives to these Examples include Muslims seeking an Islamic state, Jewish settlers and extremists in Israel and the Christian Reconstructionist movement in America.
