Comments & Further Information

First paperback edition. Very light tanning to pages. Appears unread. “Taking the most famous ‘prophet’ of recent times, David Koresh, as a starting point, this is an analytical look at the troubled history of charlatan messiahs around the world. But Koresh was neither the first, nor the most excessive, nor even the most misguided, and Colin Wilson looks at cult leaders from the early days of Christianity through, among others, the ‘Rev’ Jim Jones and Jeffrey Lundgren. He goes on to consider what it is that makes these messiahs believe they are who they claim to be, and what makes people give up everything to follow them – a messiah is nothing without someone to believe in him.” IN STOCK FOR IMMEDIATE DESPATCH
