I'm Reading. . .

"The History of God," by Karen Armstrong. I'm thrilled with it. I have a personal interest in the subject matter because I've lived and worked in the Mid-East. She takes a perspective that God is one supreme being, known by different names - it follows how civilizations, both west and east, look at God.

It's pretty easy to read with a little concentration. I recommend it for anybody who has a passing interest in the area. The author is quite impressive, a knowledgeable scholar.

I'm looking forward to reading her latest "Jerusalem: One City, Three Faiths."
