Our experience of God evolves through crisis, both inner and outer. Throughout history every conception of God expanded human awareness, and helped to answer the burning questions at the heart of our daily struggle. Beloved author and teacher Deepak Chopra takes us on an enlightening journey through history as we come to understand God through the lives of our most celebrated saints and sages. From Socrates to Joan of Arc, Rumi to Baal Shem Tov, Thomas the Apostle to Einstein, God emerges in times of conflict and sheds divine light. While God's wisdom was often ignored and very often betrayed, we witness first-hand how His presence and influence evolved over time and in so doing experience the great inrush of spirit that arrives and turns confusion and conflict into clarity and inspiration. In the end, GOD: A Story of Revelation is about on our very human journey to know and understand the divine.
Blending fictional accounts of ten extraordinary people in history he respects with commentary on their lives and works, Chopra has created a medium for us to ponder the evolution of God.--"Spirituality and Practice"
