|About the Book|
This book will provide an insight into the message of peace, reconciliation and toleration that was preached by Jesus of Nazareth, the greatest teacher and prophet and leader that even walked the face of the earth. This book will also unveil how his gospel was transformed into a message of militarism, nationalism and intolerance, and how the Apostolic community was transformed into an ecclesiastical political institution identified as Christendom. In one respect, this volume is an apology of Christian pacifism. In another respect, it is a history of the development of militarist Christendom, including the manner events and persons of secular and ecclesiastical history were interwoven to create an institution possessing the façade of Jesus Christ, but denying the primary message of his gospel, and which has subjected itself to political control for some 1,700 years.
