Product Description

What sort of a person is God? What is his life story? Is it possible to approach him not as a object of religious reverence, but as the protagonist of the world's greatest book, as a character who possesses all the depths, contradictions, and ambiquities of a Hamlet? This is the task that Jack Miles, a former Jesuit trained in religious studies and Near Eastern languages, accomplishes with such brillance and originality in God: A Biography.
