Why are hatred, intolerance, violence and war so deeply ingrained in religion? Why did the Cross become a rallying symbol for persecution? What happens when military power and religious fervor are combined? How does one man who loves the Church confront its history of crusade and conquest?

His search also reveals a growing scandal involving religious infiltration of the U.S. military and the terrible consequences of religion’s influence on America’s foreign policy.
