Reza Aslan, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Zealot, and host of Believer, explores humanity’s quest to make sense of the divine, and sounds a call to embrace a deeper, more expansive understanding of God.
In his most personal book to date, God: A Human History, Aslan explores the origin of religion and how different ideas of God have both united, and divided us for millennia. At the nucleus of his provocative new work is one idea that has spanned time, locations, and cultures: the concept of the “humanized god”—a supercharged, divine version of ourselves.
More than just a history of our understanding of God, this book is an attempt to get to the root of this humanizing impulse in order to develop a more universal spirituality. Whether you believe in one God, many gods, or no god at all, God: A Human History will transform the way you think about the divine and its role in our everyday lives.
