  • "A brief and lively history... Extraordinary."

    Alexander Waugh, Spectator
  • "Aslan turns Genesis on its head. The extent of our divine anthropomorphism is fascinating. As an introductory biography of a figure who has good claim to be called the most influential of all time, it is interesting indeed."

    Catherine Nixey, The Sunday Times
  • "

    Timely, riveting, enlightening and necessary.

  • "[Aslan’s] slim, yet ambitious book [is] the story of how humans have created God with a capital G, and it’s thoroughly mind-blowing."

    Los Angeles Review of Books
  • "Reza Aslan offers so much to relish in his excellent ‘Human History’ of God. In tracing the commonalities that unite religions, Aslan makes truly challenging arguments that believers in many traditions will want to explore further, and to mull over. This rewarding book is very ambitious in its scope, and it is thoroughly grounded in an impressive body of reading and research."
