WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE What sort of "person" is God? What is his "life story"? 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? This is the task that Jack Miles—a former Jesuit trained in religious studies and Near Eastern languages—accomplishes with such brilliance and originality in God: A Biography. Using the Hebrew Bible as his text, Miles shows us a God who evolves through his relationship with man, the image who in time becomes his rival. Here is the Creator who nearly destroys his chief creation; the bloodthirsty warrior and the protector of the downtrodden; the lawless law-giver; the scourge and the penitent. Profoundly learned, stylishly written, the resulting work illuminates God and man alike and returns us to the Bible with a sense of discovery and wonder.

Adolf Holl's divine biography examines the life of the Holy Spirit in the context of the history of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. Interweaving scholarship with religion, myth, and culture, Holl expertly traces the influence of the Holy Spirit on men and women from all walks of life, over the course of centuries. The result is quite unlike anything written before. The Holy Spirit inspired a few Galilean fishermen to find the courage to preach a new world religion. The Jews recognized it as the breath of God. Mohammed was inspired by it in the dictation of the Koran. Yet this same spirit has moved individuals to rebel against convention, authority, and even sanity. Through Holl's freewheeling yet always crystal-clear discourse, we see how the Holy Spirit informs an incredible array of beliefs (including those underlying the rituals of Appalachian snake handlers) and ideas (the works of Freud and James Joyce are among the many discussed). When the book was published in Germany, Der Spiegel wrote, "Holl has presented a formidable history, linking together the most distant things in a surprising way and leaving the whole as a paradox. He leaves it to the reader to judge the encounter with the Holy Spirit as a manifestation of the divine in the human being--or as a case for the psychiatrist." Whatever the reader's conclusion may be, The Left Hand of God is sure to be hailed as a major religious publishing event.

With the same passionate scholarship and analytical audacity he brought to the character of God, Jack Miles now approaches the literary and theological enigma of Jesus. In so doing, he tells the story of a broken promise–God’s ancient covenant with Israel–and of its strange, unlooked-for fulfillment. For, having abandoned his chosen people to an impending holocaust at the hands of their Roman conquerors. God, in the person of Jesus, chooses to die with them, in what is effectively an act of divine suicide. On the basis of this shocking argument, Miles compels us to reassess Christ’s entire life and teaching: His proclivity for the powerless and disgraced. His refusal to discriminate between friends and enemies. His transformation of defeat into a victory that redeems not just Israel but the entire world. Combining a close reading of the Gospels with a range of reference that includes Donne, Nietzche, and Elie Wiesel, Christ: A Crisis in the Life of God is a work of magnificent eloquence and imagination.

A Biography of the Biblical God is an insightful and thought-provoking analysis of religion and faith. In this compelling and stimulating read, one will discover a myriad of well-supported facts and references which question the validity of Biblical claims and explanations. Written by E. Asamoah-Yaw, the provocative pages of this book reveal the Bibles lack of verisimilitude with scientific, as well as the common laws of nature. A groundbreaking expose on the humanity of Jesus Christ, his intimate marital and sexual relations with Mary Magdalene, historical inconsistencies of the Catholic Church, the inaccuracies of the Book of Genesis explaining the beginning of creation, the holes in the four Gospels of the New Testament and many more are all discussed in this analytical book. This creative and compelling page-turner will no doubt strike intellectuals and insinuate a sense of curiosity within an individual. A book that will surely appeal to those who possess an independent mind and a logical sense of reasoning, A Biography of the Biblical God will stimulate a wide avenue for discussion, serving as a catalyst for ones personal reflection on the things previously assumed and accepted to be true. Furthermore, this read sends an eye-opening message to its readers. Mr. Asamoah-Yaw explains that faith in anything outside the self is demonstrably not dependable, not predictable and in fact very counter-productive. Religious faith may temporally increase peoples comfort levels, but it freezes the knowledge of the self and therefore prevents humans to face head-on challenges of the practical world. For the author, faith outside the self encourages total self-submission and hinders one from discovering ones innate powers.

This book is basically for every human being on earth to know about the relationship between the God Almighty (the Supreme Soul) and we human beings who came on earth as deities, hence the need of two-in-one biographies have been written simultaneously. This is the authors thesis, which has been written for the information of all. It is not a compulsion or forcing anyone to adopt to this but to make them realize of the reality that cannot be known without the help of the God Almighty, who is our spiritual godfather. This is an effort by the author to bring forth the true information about God Almighty, which has remained hidden for the past eighty-two years, and now it is time to bring it to the fore.
