Summary
"This book introduces us to three monotheistic religions - Judaism, Christianity, and Islam - and the distorted image of a God who is praised when committing violence. Instead peace should be the soul and lungs of all religions. Religion is not the source of violence; violence is constellated through human manipulation. There is an urgent need for self-awareness, the "sine qua non" for all transformation so that western countries can move away from this distorted image or dominant religion or "new opium." Several concrete observations are proposed with the book ending with a call to a wider vision of transcendence, an openness to a larger frame of reference, that is, of meaning and an enlarged vision of the role of religion's passion to bring spirit and forgiveness to public life and provide a vision of moral order." - publisher's description
