From ISIS attacks to the conflict between Israel and Palestine, Sacred Fury explores the connections between faith and violence in world religions.

Author Charles Selengut looks at religion as both a force for peace and for violence, and he asks key questions such as how "religious" is this violence and what drives the faithful to attack in the names of their beliefs?Revised throughout, the third edition features new material on violence in Buddhism and Hinduism, the rise of ISIS, "lone wolf terrorists," and more.

This up-to-date edition draws on a variety of disciplines to comprehend forms of religious violence both historically and in the present day.

The third edition of Sacred Fury is an essential resource for understanding the connections between faith and violence.
