This is the first book to journey to the heart of religious militancy. Dr. Nell J. Kressel. Who has spent decades researching genocide, terrorism, and anti- Semitism, brings to bear the insights of psychology and social science on this significant and critical problem. What separates constructive religious impulses from destructive ones ?  How does someone Who begins by committing   his relationship with God end by committing an act of murder? Some argue that religiously motivated evil always   represents  a corruption of true religion. Others are quick to suggest that religion itself- all religion-is the root of extremist violence.
