In today's world many violent acts are perpetrated in the name of religion. To me, this poses certain questions. From whence does religion originate? Why are there so many religions? Is any one of them the true one?
No one is born a religious fundamentalist (or any other type of fundamentalist for that matter), so the second question I ask myself is, how does a person become one? Finally, once a fundamentalist has been created, why is it virtually impossible to persuade him or her to have a change of mind and heart?
Is it possible to shed new light on these important questions, with a view to determining how this vicious cycle of hatred can be broken? I believe it is, as you will discover within the pages of this volume.
