For a book about God, it talked an awful lot about war and politics. How in Christianity, Islam, and Judaism there seem to be more and more distinctly two camps of secular / liberal and fundamentalist who don't understand each other. Some middle ground must be found because a strong push by one side against another = a push back and escalation. The book was written before 9.11 and foresees a lot of what we are living now.
