History of God: The 4,000-Year Quest of Judaism, Christianity and Islam by national bestseller Karen Armstrong
Armstrong, one of Britain's foremost commentators on religious affairs, traces the history of how men and women have perceived and experienced God, from the time of Abraham to the present. From classical philosophy and medieval mysticism to the Reformation, the Enlightenment, and the modern age of skepticism, the author performs the near miracle of distilling the intellectual history of monotheism into one superbly readable volume, destined to take its place as a classic. — Random House
