Publisher's Summary

What does tomorrow hold for the way we worship God? In The Future of God, Karen Armstrong guides us through a bewildering landscape, over many centuries and civilizations, to show how our concept of God has evolved with the passage of time. Armstrong suggests ways that prayer, imagination, and silence can help everyone on the spiritual path today enter the mystery within our depths and recognize God in ourselves and others. The Future of God is an inspiring event that takes us to the past, present, and future of our deepest spiritual yearnings.

Karen Armstrong as always stretches the boundaries

Very helpful ,I think, for anyone struggling to understand the meaning of religion or spirituality today.

A good essay

Thought provoking. A well considered essay on the modern day issues around God. I found the reading quite challenging - just too formal for my taste - it really grated.

Armstrong at her most prophetic!

Wonderful insight into the possibilities of mystical worship and the possible future of thought about the aground of Being.
