Comparative religion scholar Karen Armstrong presents The Case for God. Going back to the early history of the human race, and taking examples from all the world's major religions, Armstrong finds the thread of a human longing and seeking for a divine being that it called by many names, such as God, Brahman, Nirvana, Allah, or Dao.

Now, in a polarized world characterized by the clash between a population moving away from belief in God and the strong fundamentalist movement found in many faiths, Armstrong argues that faith must necessarily adapt while continuing to draw on the insights of the past. She also cautions us that religion was never supposed to provide answers that lie within the competence of human reason, stating that the task of religion is "to help us live creatively, peacefully, and even joyously with realities for which there are no easy explanations."
