The human search for truth has led to massive achievements in science and technology. It has also led to God: this book tells the story of that search for God. It explains: how the search for Goddess and God began and developed; how the human brain and body open the way to God; how the meaning of God is expressed in art, sex, story, music and architecture; how science and God belong together in the human search for truth; and how that search has led to amazing discoveries. It explores: why evil acts are committed in the name of God; why the death of God occurs so often, and yet God still persists; why prayer and praise are such an important part of human nature; and why the search for God points to the revelation of God. In this book, John Bowker's insightful text is enhanced by hundreds of photographs, illustrations, maps and charts, and accompanied by passages from sacred books and works of poetry, philosophy, praise and devotion. All these elements combine to make "God - A Brief History" an unparalleled exploration of the human search for eternal truth in all ages and cultures.About the Author:
