History Of GOD

Post  harbinger on Sun Mar 28, 2010 12:06 pm



Based on the best-selling book by Karen Armstrong (posted below), A History of God descends into the ancient roots of Abrahamic religions and analyses today's three major monotheistic religions: Judaism, Christianity
and Islam.

And the book it was based on.....



his searching, profound comparative history of the three major monotheistic faiths fearlessly illuminates the sociopolitical ground in which religious ideas take root, blossom and mutate. Armstrong, a British broadcaster, commentator on religious affairs and former Roman Catholic nun, argues that Judaism, Christianity and Islam each developed the idea of a personal God, which has helped believers to mature as full human beings. Yet Armstrong also acknowledges that the idea of a personal God can be dangerous, encouraging us to judge, condemn and marginalize others. Recognizing this, each of the three monotheisms, in their different ways, developed a mystical tradition grounded in a realization that our human idea of God is merely a symbol of an ineffable reality. To Armstrong, modern, aggressively righteous fundamentalists of all three faiths represent "a retreat from God." She views as inevitable a move away from the idea of a personal God who behaves like a larger version of ourselves, and welcomes the grouping of believers toward a notion of God that "works for us in the empirical age."

While we appreciate your efforts, we tend to ask that people provide content by submitting it to the project email address ( occult [ dot ] digital [ dot ] mobilization [ at ] gmail [ dot ] com ) rather than giving links in the forums. This way the information is kept available long after the site it was originally hosted on removes it or goes down, or after our forum host decides they want to kick us off their servers for whatever reasons they may have. There's also the fact that the forums are merely a place for those who use the project's Releases to communicate with each other, and not the project itself.

As I said, though, we really do appreciate your efforts, and hope that you will continue to make them in the future!
