Based on the acclaimed book by Karen Armstrong, this feature-film guides viewers along one of the most difficult tasks of mankind.

More than 4,000 years, followers of the monotheistic religions of the world have struggled with the question of God. This extraordinary feature film, based on Karen Armstrong’s acclaimed book of the same name, traces that elusive and fascinating quest.

A History of God examines the familiar images of the deity presented in the Bible and the Koran, and traces the evolution and interrelation of the various Christian, Jewish, Islamic and interpretations of the divine figure. Through balanced analysis of historical and sacred texts and the extensive use of art and ancient artifacts, we will continue the long road to today’s understanding of God and the journey and the destination that speak of humanity and its incessant search for meaning and comfort.

Since the days of Abraham to the present, this is a look at the reflection in the God in the heart of the three great monotheistic religions. (Excerpt from bbc.co.uk)
