3.0 out of 5 stars Personal View, 1 April 2013
This review is from: The Story Of God (Paperback)
This book was a slight disappointment as although readable it was a personal view which was coloured by the TV series which it accompanies. Winston's view is as an orthodox Jew and as a scientist and doctor. He reconciles his various viewpoints well, but I would have hoped to have gained some perspective from the eastern religions as well from shamanism.Nonetheless there were for me some useful insights including how ancient peoples must have been puzzled by death given its similarity to sleep. Professor Winston also helps explain the great Jewish contribution to religion and history and also grapples with puritans. However, at times it did seem slightly superficial.

One small cavill was that the author referred to Newton's great work as the Principia Mathematica , which whilst not incorrect is a title usually reserved for Russell and Whitehaed's book on maths.

It is also good to know that the author supports the great football club known as Arsenal.
