Blood That Cries Out From the Earth: The Psychology of Religious Terrorism

I first read this book around six years ago, but events brought it to mind when someone in a blog comment cited this discussion. The book is a quick read though it is a bit academic at times. Basically, the two analyses overlap some, this one ending with a hopeful message that religion can be used for good. I agree and anyways it will be around in some form for a long time. So, abuses cannot really be replaced by fully secular things.

And Also: Interesting analysis that shows a bit more than Islamophobia was involved in a recent bit of excitement concerning a class project. Knowing all the facts in these cases often informative and blogs can help there.
