    A courageous insider's view of religious dysfunction..

    It is refreshing to hear a well-educated and qualified 'insider' speak out against some of the more pernicious traditions within contemporary religions. We would be well advised to reflect upon our own faith positions and ask ourselves frankly and honestly whether or not we are inadvertently supporting the types of attitudes or doctrines that can give rise to these evil excesses. Kimball's book leaves one wondering how and when we can accurately discern what is and is not a bona-fide religion.. The mask of speudo-piety that hides so much evil in our societies needs to be exposed for what it really is, for if a socially-accepted religion becomes evil, then where indeed can we turn for moral guidance? Religion pervades all aspects of international society. We need to understand its dangers as well as its benefits.

    Hope in Understanding Islam, Others, and the US

    This book gave me hope that there can be understanding between the world's religions and people of peace who are the true majority in the world. What we see on TV and in the media are the extremists. Kimball gives the deeper reasons for such great chasms between Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism and other religions from a Harvard educated minister's viewpoint. You won't get his perspective from anyone in government, even military chaplains. The only problem i had was differentiating patriotism of country from 'blind obedience' which the author seems to infer. Definitely a book to be read by the president, his cabinet and administration, congress, supreme court, and chiefs of staff. Kimball builds more bridges than anyone i have seen on this topic and gives real reasons for why we should all get along together. He exposes the religious right extremists in America and the very liberal. However, Kimball falls short of the Jimmy Carter Center panel on giving solutions to the Middle East policy problem which aired on CSPAN recently. This book will be on the Washington Post best seller list before long. A very good scholarly treatment of the post 9/11 world and the human divides since the crusades.
