Read in January, 2010

Interesting thoughts and historical background on how gods get to be gods, but his final thesis, that the improvement in man's moral belief systems and conduct over the ages--even if the improvement does occur in fits and starts, with significant reversals from time to time--may be some evidence of god, seems forced, speculative, and wholly unsupported by any evidence. This hypothesis is only a small part of the book, and does not distract from a book well worth reading.
