GOD'S LUNATICS:  Lost Souls, False Prophets, Martyred Saints, Murderous Cults, Demonic Nuns, And Other Victims of Man's Eternal Search for the Divine

From the dawn of civilization, man has looked for the meaning of existence. The big questions like where did we come from, how should we live, and where do we go when we die, have always captured our imagination and attention. Each generation has been eager to see the disparate ways that divine forces might manifest and come to offer guidance, help, or even harm. The roads taken to find certain truths were varied, ranging from the ridiculous, or horrific and strange, to the sublime.

God's Lunatics chronicles the lives of celebrated mystics, martyrs, wizards, shamans, cult leaders, founding fathers of Utopian experiments, victims of demonic possession, and originators of New Age movements who dedicated their lives to seek answers and explain the unknown secrets of the universe.
