Religion

Author(s): Karen Armstrong

Ideas & Philosophy

'Because 'God' is infinite, nobody can have the last word.'

What is this thing, religion, which has supposedly been the cause of bloodshed and warring for centuries? What is 'God' and do we need 'Him' in our modern world? Karen Armstrong, bestselling author and one of the world's leading writers on religious affairs, has a refreshing and startling way of looking again at these questions. God is not a being to be 'believed in' as a child believes in Santa Claus; religion is not a story to be proven true or false, but a discipline akin to music or art that answers a deeply human need, and can teach us to discover new capacities of mind and heart.

Selected from A Case for God, Fields of Blood and The Lost Art of Scripture
