"Starred review. In this wide-ranging investigation, Stark detects sacred reality---not pious deception---at the heart of transcendent beliefs shared by Aborigines and Anglicans. However, it is in the revelatory faiths---and not the meditative religions of Eastern Asia---that Stark discerns the fullest manifestation of God. An essential sourcebook"---Booklist. 496 pages, softcover. HarperOne.

Review 1 for Discovering God: The Origins of The Great Religions and The Evolution of Belief
This is a good book that tracks the belief of God from the Stone Age to the present. The author seeks to answer the following question: Is God real or did man invent Him? Discovering God is loaded with information on Christianity as well as other religions and their beginnings. The author is well informed and educated, yet he writes in an easy-reading style as he presents evidence to support his position. What is his position? Read the book and find out!
