Year 4, Book 78

78. The Case for God by Karen Armstrong
This book was incredibly tedious to get through and not really what I was expecting based on the title. As opposed to the Case for God I would have called it the history of religion. At least to me it didn’t seem to focus very much on God. Only peripherally as she went through seemingly every single religious idea and their thoughts on God and also science in many cases since the beginning of time all the way up through today. Obviously with covering that many ideas there is limited space to get into any detail on the movements, and I just didn’t find myself getting much out of this book at all. It’s a shame because I’ve really enjoyed some of Armstrong’s other books on religion. This one just didn’t work for me though. I give it 3 out of 10.
