by | Read by Karen Armstrong

Philosophy & Religion • 17 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

In a work somewhat more challenging then her previous works (such as THE BATTLE FOR GOD and A SHORT HISTORY OF MYTH), Armstrong takes on no less a topic than the world's religious history. She makes the case with meticulous detail that a good look at that history would help bring perspective to the radical views, both pro and con, that trouble our world today. Armstrong's polished and precise British voice seems quintessentially right—ringing with the gravitas of academia yet textured with her palpable curiosity about the many ways we've chosen to express belief in God. As always, Armstrong’s genuine compassion for how all religions struggle with faith shines through. Ultimately hopeful, Armstrong' s well-reasoned plea for the practical discipline of religion makes this lengthy journey worthwhile.
