Terror in the Mind of God

The Global Rise of Religious Violence

Why would anybody believe that God could sanction terrorism? Why has the rediscovery of religion's power in recent years manifested in such a bloody way? What, if anything, can be done about it? Terror in the Mind of God, now in its fourth edition, answers these questions and more. Thoroughly revised and expanded, the book analyzes in detail terrorism related to almost all the world's major religious traditions--Christians in Europe who oppose Muslim immigrants, American Christians who support abortion clinic bombings and militia actions, Catholics and Protestants who attempt to justify acts of terrorism in Northern Ireland, Muslims associated with the rise of ISIS, Jews who support the persecution of Palestinians, Hindus linked to assaults on Muslims in the state of Gujarat, Sikhs identified with the assassination of Indira Gandhi, and Buddhist miltants affiliated with anti-Muslim violence and the nerve gas attack in Tokyo's subway.
Rezension
This dark, enthralling book not only documents the global rise of religious terrorism but seeks to understand the odd attraction of religion and violence' . . . Juergensmeyer is a powerful, skillful writer whose deeply empathic interviewing techniques allow readers to enter the minds of some of the late twentieth century's most feared religious terrorists."-Publishers Weekly
