God Against the Gods: The Bright Side of Paganism, the Dark Side of Monotheism, and the Roots of Religious Violence in the Modern World

Bestselling author Jonathan Kirsch reveals how monotheism triumphed over polytheism and paganism, but in the process he shows how it was monotheism that introduced the terrors of true belief, including holy war, martyrdom, inquisitions, and crusades. Religious liberty and diversity were core values of classical paganism — how would the modern world look today if the worship of many gods had been tolerated instead of persecuted? Excellent! Kirsch is a brilliant storyteller.
