Synopsis

"Holy War The Blood of Abraham: Echoes from Nag Hammadi saying to all three Religions I am not the God you think you know is a book about the 1945 discovery at Nag Hammadi and how in time it will alter the future of Christianity-as well as Judaism and Islam.

Through the lens of this discovery it addresses two important questions:

· What is the role of the religions of Abraham in present world conflict?

· Is only Islam to blame, or also Judaism and Christianity?

It exposes the underlying flaws that are built into each of these three religious belief systems and, although it leaves it to the reader to decide, argues that culpability for Islamic terrorism lies not only with the failures of Islam, but also with the failures of
Judaism and Christianity.
It is a book that calls on its readers; Christians, Jews and Muslims, and all others, to look within themselves in search for answers to the most important questions facing our world today."
