In God: A Guide for the Perplexed, bestselling author Keith Ward has crafted a unique, perceptive, witty, and informative introduction to the mysteries of the divine. From the essential truths presented in ancient Greek mythology via the stories about Olympian gods, through the key ideas of major philosophers such as Nietzsche and Marx, to the surprise insights offered by such diverse elements of our experience as Romantic poetry and the film Alien', Ward draws on everything that has either directly or remotely influenced our knowledge of a higher force. His book therefore provides not only a multi-disciplinary and comprehensive account of the different manifestations of God, but, most importantly, offers a humorous and engaging encounter with both humanity's belief in God and our exploration of that belief. Mixing the eclectic with the sublime, this illustrated and profound volume will be a compulsive page-turner for anyone interested in the real core of the philosophical and spiritual quest for meaning.
