God, A Human History
Reza Aslam, author of Zealot, a life and times book about the historical Jesus. He has recently written another book, God, A Human History. This is a much more readable book than one written by Karen Armstrong on similar religious topics. Aslan’s work plays to his strong suit as a sociology and religious history professor.
Have you ever wondered whether humanity is “hard wired” to believe in a Deity. Or have you wondered how other cultures and times have grappled with Spirituality. If so this is a good book dealing with those questions. The exhaustive annotated footnotes are worth the read just on their own. Reviewed by Don Corson. Note: this is a large print book.
