Editorial Reviews

Review

Deepak Chopra, the spiritual sage, has exhibited immense ambition…His attempt to explain God makes my bones shiver. His success in defining that life-long mystery brings tears to my eyes and humbles me in gratitude. He has probed through the ages in order to write a book for the ages. (Maya Angelou)

“Deepak Chopra has successfully blended ancient Vedanta Philosophy with his unique perspective on modern science to provide a vast audience with solutions that meet many needs for our modern age.” (Huston Smith, author of The World's Religions)

“The line is usually drawn from God to revelation but by drawing it from revelation to God in this astonishing book, Deepak achieves two startling results.” (Arvind Sharma, Birks Professor of Comparative Religion, McGill University)

“Spiritual traditions manifest themselves most clearly in the living human beings who embody them. In this highly readable volume Deepak Chopra has told the engaging stories of a dozen of these exemplary figures. The result is both inspiring and richly enjoyable.” (Harvey Cox, author of The Future of Faith)

“Through his compelling fictionalization, Deepak Chopra offers an intriguing exposition of the evolution of human theological thought. He should have called the book ‘A Brief History of God’!” (Leonard Mlodinow, co-author (with Stephen Hawking) of The Grand Design and A Briefer History of Time)

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)

From the Back Cover

In Deepak Chopra's powerful, groundbreaking, and imaginative new work, a unique blend of storytelling and teaching, the New York Times bestselling author explores the evolution of God. By capturing the lives of ten historical prophets, saints, mystics and martyrs who are touched by a divine power, Chopra reveals a riveting portrait of a constantly changing God. Our belief and therefore God itself transforms with each passing century. Chopra's novel brings to life the defining moments of our most influential sages, ultimately revealing to us universal lessons about the true nature of God.

5.0 out of 5 stars "THE POWER OF FAITH!" September 26, 2012
Format:Hardcover
New York Times bestselling author, Deepak Chopra delivers a compelling portrait of God, and our belief in God. The author becomes a Master storyteller with an incredible imagination as he portrays the lives of historical prophets, saints, and those touched by a divine power. This remarkable, colorful portrait presents a riveting story of defining moments as Chopra describes the true nature of a changing God, while exploring evolution. The lives of martyrs are captured, along with universal lessons and interesting information is given on the Old Testament verses the New Testament in reference to findings on Paul. We learn through teachings about the lives of Shankara and Anne Hutchinson, how Socrates changed a spirit, and much more. This heartwarming and powerfully moving story tugs at the heartstrings from beginning to end. Refreshing, thought-provoking, and Highly Recommended to all those who enjoy stories that are inspirational and uplifting!

3.0 out of 5 stars Very difficult read. October 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a huge fan of Deepak Chopra. I have seen him speak and own many of his books. However, this has been the first book that I just cannot get into.
It is very difficult to read and I find I cannot stay focused on it. Perhaps I am not spiratually intelligent enough for the content of this book. The explanations are very intense and complicated and hard to follow for the average person. I may have to try to read it at another time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deepak Chopra awaken the divine in each of us! September 27, 2012
By davidji
Format:Hardcover
Dr. Deepak Chopra is one of the most brilliant translators of timeless wisdom and one of the great story-tellers of our time. In GOD: A Story of Revelation, his masterful insights flow poetically and powerfully, as he progressively unfolds the understanding of God through the eyes of histories most lucid sages & visionaries. The diversity of the different voices through the ages and their interpretations and understandings of the Divine offer us a continually shifting perspective in our own relationship to God. In the process, we expand our own belief system and connect more deeply with the divine voice that whispers within. As he walks the reader through this historical journey, we FEEL our own soul connection strengthen and ultimately the awakening of our most universal self. What a magnificent gift! If there was a sixth star for CLASSIC, this book would be deserving of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exquisite Classic September 28, 2012
Format:Hardcover
God A revelation.
A wonderfully crafted revelation worthy to be called a landmark of our time
In the fullest sense a perennial story of the eternal quest told by the master storyteller-scientist-sage
Our lovely Deepak Chopra

So wise at weaving physics and medicine with insight and meaning here Deepak returns with timeless stories of
the personal experience of God as expanded or limited by the mind of the experiencer or the society that it dwells in.
Books of this caliber deserve to be aside the classics of the science of the Soul, and God A revelation (as revealed)
in particular heralds an evolutionary leap.

the conscious co creative experience and integration of the spiritual experience transcends religion and civilization as the driving source of inspiration
and purpose and even more so as the human seeks to derive meaning from the challenges of the life of the senses and the demands of the world.

When Albert Einstein was asked by parents how to develop the intelligence of their children to equal that of Einstein he often replied "Tell them stories" And when asked hoe to "truly" educate them Einstein actually replied on many occasions "Have them write their own stories" Deepak Chopra proves again with his stories of lives of human beings who have responded to the challenges of Spirit in the body that the
creative living in its fullest embraces deep insight and conscious growth with practical life as well as transcendent transformation .

Equally comfortable with Medicine or Physics or Psychology, here Deepak returns again for the eternal story of the science

the Science of Spirit.

Bravo Deepak Chopra!

I would reframe the title of the book as an exclamation....GOD! What a revelation!.....

5.0 out of 5 stars God: A Story of Revelation October 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book causes one to stop and think. It is not a book to read through in one setting, even though it is easy to read. There is much food for thought and the author challenges his readers to consider the wide range of thinkers he writes about. What is their role in revealing how mankind's perception of God has changed over the eons seems to be the author's purpose. It is a very uplifting and thought provoking book if you are willing to broaden your concept of God.

5.0 out of 5 stars Our Evolving Relationship with God September 28, 2012
Format:Hardcover
A powerful and engaging book. Chopra uses fascinating stories of historical figures to illustrate how our collective ideas of God have evolved to reflect our own spiritual growth. In the lives of each of these individuals we find a different voice of God speaking through them. Some are familiar to us such as St. Paul and Job, and some are not like Giordano Bruno, Julian of Norwich and Anne Hutchinson.
As we are taken into the deep interior of their psyches to explore with them the profound contradictions and mysteries of their spiritual life our own experiences are triggered revealing insights into God from our own biography. The lives and stories of these great men and women of God help us navigate the spiritual landscape of our own lives to help us formulate our personal revelation of God.
