Product Details


2016 Best Book Award in Spirituality

“A thoughtful examination of faiths and faith stories throughout the ages.”—Booklist

“Isbouts weighs the culture of ancient times against more modern thinking, suggesting new interpretations for legends and exploring alternative versions of stories. Taking a secular tack, he leaves open-ended questions about whether these prayers were heard by a higher power—and what form that entity’s response might take—while concluding that faith of all kinds makes the world a better place.”—Publishers Weekly

“Isbouts places the reader right in the thick of the action.” -Rebecca Hitt ‘Stories in My Pocket’ blog

“As a history teacher myself, I was immediately drawn in by Isbouts’ storytelling.  Vivid descriptions coupled with historical context provided a greater depth and understanding of these accounts.” 

“Isbouts has a storyteller’s gift…” -Tonya Parham ‘Books Make Everything Better’ blog

“A powerful survey that’s highly recommended for any who like historical inspection and a general survey of how faith and its messages are transmitted.”-California Book Watch

“Exceptionally well organized and presented.”-Midwest Book Review

“Never a history buff at school, which I have come to regret, I lapped up Isbouts’s fascinating accounts.” –Rachel Britton ‘Rachel Britton’ blog

“[This] narrative account will help you grasp both the power of stories, and the challenges involved in and rewards of historical reconstruction.”
