GOD'S BATTALIONS launches a frontal assault on the comfortable myths that scholars have popularized about the crusades. The results are startling. His greatest achievement is to make us see the crusaders on their own terms. -- Philip Jenkins, author of The Lost History of Christianity
"A cogent and feisty apologist for Christian history . . . An excitingly readable distillation of the new, revisionist Crusades historiography" -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Award-winning author and sociologist Rodney Stark humbly goes to war against the many politically correct myths surrounding the history of the Crusades in this well-researched and easy-to-read academic masterpiece. Stark proves himself once again as a historical myth-buster."--CBN.com, A+ rating

"[Stark] makes the case [for the crusades] with admirable frankness and flair."--The Catholic Thing
"In God's Battalions, Stark provides an account of the Crusades perfectly fitted for the Fox News audience. Clearly this is not the politically correct version of the Crusades, and that is fine: there is little that was politically correct about the Crusades in the first place."--Christian Century
"Stark's clear, factual narrative offers larger-than-life characters.... [his] works are an encouraging corrective to the anti-Western history routinely taught in our schools."--New Oxford Review
"[Stark] wants to challenge the prevailing television pundit-level misunderstanding of the Crusades, and in this, his accessible, enjoyably argued book succeeds."--Christianity Today
"[God's Battalions] avoid[s] the black-and-white nonsense of current secular thinkers, who condemn the Crusades as part of their condemnation of the Catholic Church and of much later Western imperialism. ...Stark demonstrate[s] a more sophisticated view of history, religion and culture."--Catholic San Francisco
The truth about the Christian Crusades and Muslim Jihad.
