Summary
In God is Not One, Prothero provides readers with this much-needed content about each of the eight great religions. To claim that all religions are the same is to misunderstand that each attempts to solve a different human problem. Prothero reveals each of these traditions on its own terms to create an indispensible guide for anyone who wants to better understand the big questions human beings have asked for millennia--and the disparate paths we are taking today
