display_description
Evaluates the role of religion in history, stating that modern expressions of faith are considerably removed from those of previous generations while arguing that an increased awareness of past insights may build a faith that speaks to an increasingly polarized society. Moving from the Paleolithic age to the present, Karen Armstrong details the great lengths to which humankind has gone in order to experience a sacred reality. While noting that the changing face of the world has necessarily changed the importance of religion at both the societal and the individual level, she makes a powerful, convincing argument for drawing on the insights of the past in order to build a faith that speaks to the needs of our dangerously polarized age.
