Trade paperback in very good condition. From the back:

Why does God exist? How have the three dominant monotheistic religions - Judaism, Christianity, and Islam - shaped and altered the conception of God? How have these religions influenced each other? In this stunningly intelligent book, Karen Armstrong , one of Britain's foremost commentators on religious affairs, traced the history of how men and women have perceived and experienced God from the time of Abraham to the present.

"An admirable and impressive work of synthesis that will give insight and satisfaction to thousand sof lay readers." -- The Washington Post Book World

"A brilliantly lucid, splendidly readable book. Armstrong has a dazzling ability: she can take a long and complex subject and reduce it to the fundamentals, without oversimplifying." --The Sunday Times (London)

8 out of 10

I've interviewed Karen Armstrong and love her books. She is a philosopher who tackles a difficult subject with scholarship, clarity and sensitivity. I highly recommend this or any other book by Ms. Armstrong.
