The Evolution of Godby Robert Wright
Synopses & Reviews
In this sweeping narrative, which takes us from the Stone Age to the Information Age, Robert Wright unveils an astonishing discovery: there is a hidden pattern that the great monotheistic faiths have followed as they have evolved. Through the prisms of archeology, theology, and evolutionary psychology, Wright's findings overturn basic assumptions about Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, and are sure to cause controversy. He explains why spirituality has a role today and why science, contrary to conventional wisdom, affirms the validity of the religious quest. And this previously unrecognized evolutionary logic points not toward continued religious extremism but to future harmony.
Nearly a decade in the making, The Evolution of God is a breathtaking reexamination of the past and a visionary look forward.
The prize-winning author of The Moral Animal and Nonzero presents a groundbreaking examination of religion through the ages.
