A History of God - Karen Armstrong

A very good, thorough study of God in three main religions; Christianity, Judaism and Islam. What struck me about it was how man-made religion is and how in all the traditions what was originally intended for all (men and women) has been distorted to this patriachal view. It's surprising how confused mankind has always been about the meaning of life and the origin of man and God. Also, just the fact that the image we have of God is so far from what God really is. We have tried to make God in our image rather than reach out to Ultimate Being.
