God: A Biography by Jack Miles

Description

What sort of “person” is God? Is it possible to approach him not as an object of religious reverence, but as the protagonist of the world's greatest book–as a character who possesses all the depths, contradictions, and abiguities of a Hamlet? In this “brilliant, audacious book” (Chicago Tribune), a former Jesuit marshalls a vast array of learning and knowledge of the Hebrew Bible to illuminate God–and man–with a sense of discovery and wonder.

Editorial Review

Is it possible to approach God not as an object of religious reverence, but as the protagonist of the world's greatest book — as a character who possesses all the depths, contradictions, and ambiguities of a Hamlet? How does he depend on the other characters, and how does his relationship with them show his development? Miles provides a learned, original exegesis that will send readers back to the Bible in curious amazement. Winner of the 1996 Pulitzer Prize for biography.
