God : A Guide for the Perplexed, Paperback / softback Book

God : A Guide for the Perplexed Paperback / softback


From Plato to Wittgenstein and religions from Judaism to the Hindu tradition, interspersed with divine influences from Classical Greece, Romantic poetry, and the occasional scene from 'Alien', `God: A Guide for the Perplexed' charts the path of humanity's great spiritual odyssey: the search for God.

Leading the way through this minefield is acclaimed philosopher-theologian Keith Ward, blending the sublime and the eclectic in a narrative which offers wit, erudition and moments of genuine pathos.

As a survey of the different manifestations of God through the centuries, and an examination of humanity's search for the divine, this is an engaging and informative book.

As a deeply moving testament to our endless capacity for spiritual hope, it is compulsive reading for anyone interested in, or embarking on, the great quest for meaning. `A lively and very clearly written discussion summarizing and criticizing the thoughts of many significant thinkers.'Times Literary Supplement `Wry but delightfully non-ironic, intelligent and clear, this book is a blessing. `Publishers Weekly `Highly informed, witty and immensely accessible.

One of the most congenial, lively and informative introductions to this field.'Alister McGrath, Professor of Historical Theology, Oxford University
