Product Details


“Novelist Engh puts her narrative skills to good use by launching these 22 articles on episodes of religious persecution throughout the world in an attention-grabbing, dramatic manner…unlike the historical figures she sketches, Engh herself manifests neither bigotry nor religious partisanship.”

“Engh’s unique book fills an important gap in the literature on the history of religion. It presents complex and sophisticated issues in a clear and interesting manner.”
–Roger Schlesinger, Professor of History, Emeritus, Washington State University

“This timely work considers the reality of religious persecution over the span of 3000 years of human history. Although this is a monumental task, poet and novelist Engh is adept at naming, describing, and summarizing significant moments of persecution dating from ancient Egypt to the 21st century. In the 22 concisely written and researched chapters, she shows the darker side of religion with balance and factual accuracy…Recommended.” –Library Journal
