A History of God covers the history of the three major monotheistic religions of the world. The film traces the roots and evolution of Judaism, Christianity and Islam from early beginnings to contemporary beliefs. Analysis of holy texts, ancient art and artifacts, and interviews with theologians and scholars are drawn upon to help understand the long road faith has taken from Abraham to the modern era.
Based on the book by award-winning British author Karen Armstrong, A History of God is more than a mere history lesson. It explains the evolution of the concept of God from its ancient roots in the Middle East up to the present day.
