In another brilliant study, Armstrong looks at the attempt of all religions, but especially Christianity, to express the reality of God and the changes through many millennia in human ideas about God.

Karen Armstrong traces the birth of Jerusalem and takes the reader up to the present day of her writing. She deftly narrates the long history of the passion of three major faiths  for their holy city. Amongst all that it includes, what may be most educational for Christians is the description of the worst consequence of our own zealotry, the Crusades.

Bestselling author Karen Armstrong has published numerous books, including A History of God, Islam: A Short History,The Battle for God, Buddha, The Spiral Staircase, Muhammed,The Great Transformation, The Case for God, and most recently, Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life.
