On the surface this book seems like a straightforward rational history of how the idea of God evolved in the conscious human mind as a way to explain existence and the nature of the universe. Look deeper and you'll see that the author is leading the reader to what he believes is the ultimate view of the nature of God and the universe: pantheism. This philosophy, as explained in this book, strikes me as a desperate attempt to reconcile the irreconcilable. It was a disappointing conclusion to an otherwise excellent book.

The author presents a very interesting and at times compelling narrative of the origins and maturation of religion and the belief in God. Although the narrative is suffused with the bias towards pantheism the there is a consistent thread of cognitive conflict between a spirit God and a humanized God.
