Professor Robert Winston presents a definitive three-part documentary series on the history of humanity’s search to understand the nature of God.

God’s story is an epic journey across continents, cultures and eras exploring religious beliefs of his early incarnations, through the development of the major religions of the world and the state of religious faith in a scientific age.

The series examines the roots of religious beliefs in prehistoric societies and the different ways in which the sense of humanity of the divine developed. It looks at the divergence between the religions that worship a range of deities and those that represent strict monotheism.

The series begins with Professor Winston examine the many religions that believe in different gods and explores why mankind started to believe in God.

The answer to that question, says Professor Winston, can be found in the caves where our ancestors came to their gods and where in the fields where people still ask for help, in the cities where our ancestors have been honored temples and the gods are appeased with sacrifices.

“But above all the answer,” says Professor Winston, “lies in the human desire to be united with something bigger than ourselves.”
