1.0 out of 5 stars What case?, 23 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Case for God: What religion really means (Kindle Edition)
By the question in my title I don't mean to imply that Armstrong has put forward a *bad* case for God. She has put forward *no* case for God. Whatsoever. What we have is a breathless run through of certain aspects of religious behaviour from way back until the present day. There is little theme, little theory, and no "message". We are just presented with little snippets of information arranged in chronological order.

It might be very interesting that prehistoric cave paintings require a long arduous journey to get to see them. Or that Luther obeyed the monastic rulle to the letter before rejecting "rule" in favour of "faith". But what does it all mean? What does it say about God? Or our approach to God? Or, well, anything.

Fact follows fact follows fact follows fact and we wait in vain for any revelation of just why we have to sit through this stream of little factiods.

Just pointless.
