In the Hebrew Bible, God is characterized variously as militant, beneficent, inscrutable, loving, and judicious. Who is this divinity that has been represented as masculine and feminine, mythic and real, transcendent and intimate? The Origin and Character of God is Theodore J. Lewis's monumental study of the vast subject

Beginning with the first signs of religion among ancient humans and concluding with a look at modern citizens and contemporary trends,leading scholar

By studying the utilization of the theory in different periods—from the Graeco-Roman world to Late Antiquity, and from the Renaissance to the twenty-first century—this book explores the reception of the theory

In recent decades, a new scientific approach to understand, explain, and predict many features of religion has emerged. The cognitive science of religion (CSR) has amassed research on the forces that shape the tendency for humans to be religious and on what forms belief takes. It suggests that religion, like language or music, naturally emerges in humans with tractable similarities. This new approach has profound implications for how we understand religion, including why it appears so easily, and why people

Religion and Mythology exposes a new approach to religion and mythology that demonstrates a much greater compatibility than is generally accepted. Rather than accepting religion as essentially truth and myth as essentially false, it proposes that myths are married to all religious traditions. The author defines myths as "an imaginative response to experience that yields a certain kind of knowledge." Myths demonstrate relationships that connect the human spirit to the community and deepen the experience of the world through nature.
