Wherever you stand on the God question, or, think you do, I believe God is the most influential figure in the history of human civilization. Not just any god, but the god that created Adam and Eve; the god of Abraham, the god of the Jews; the god of the Christians; and the god of Islam. But what do we really know about him? Who is he? Where did he come from? What does he look like? What sort of character does he have? What, if anything does he eat? Does he have a family? In what ways can he be said to even exist at all?
Alexander Waugh has been asking questions like these for as long as he can remember. Now having drawn from an enormous range of sources, from the sacred books of the Torah, the Christian New Testament, and the Islamic Qur'an, from the Greek Apocrypha and the ancient Texts of Nag Hammadi to the Dead Sea Scrolls, he has sought out the answers.
Using material gleaned from the diverse writings of saints, rabbis, historians, prophets, atheists, poets, and mystics, he has molded his findings into a singular, striking biographical portrait of God.
Having read his book ( GOD ) on this subject or not, who do you think is the most influential figure in the history of human civilization?
I found his book challenging about the way I think about and or believe in god. So, I wanted to share this view of Alexander Waugh's with you.
