`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
