God-Reza Aslan   1 comment


I really enjoyed reading most of this book, it was only the ending which let the book down
It covers the entire history of our belief in God going back to prehistory.

I found the details fascinating, it was detailed and well referenced.

The explanaitions of islamic beliefs and those of sufism were fascinating.

It let itself down when it closed by giving the authors personal opinion, attempting to support his opinion by tying up all the previous information. Sadly, this can only ever an opinion, and according to christian theology he made some huge mistakes. It would have been much better left openended. As it is, it read like a thesis.

It is worth a read, but keep your opinions open, dont just buy into his opinion, he has set out the information carefully to back it up, but some basic details have been omitted.
