A HISTORY OF GOD The 4,000 Year Quest for Judaism, Christianity and Islam

by | Read by Karen Armstrong

Philosophy & Religion • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 1994

Karen Armstrong's subtitle isn't quite accurate. This history of God doesn't just review how believers in each in the three major Western monotheistic religions conceptualized the Divine. Armstrong also explains how each faith influenced the others and how each related to philosophical, political, and scientific developments. Armstrong's tone is engaged, almost excited, communicating the importance of this topic, but balanced and fair. In this the delivery matches the text: Both are clear and accessible. The one weakness in this production is that it's an abridgment; so much is covered in a relatively short time that more explanation of the subtler points, and a slower pace, would have worked better.
