The Evolution of a Western God: 30,000 B.C.E. to the Now
is the story of an exploration into the beliefs, visualizations, and perceptions of God over the millennia. The story is limited to the influences affecting the dominant visions of God in Europe and the Americas.
The book is in three parts. Part One looks at the many meanings together with the emotional and bias of critical words like spirit, myth, science, and religion.
Part Two traces the visions of God(s) in the Middle East and Europe from the Neolithic through to the present. It traces the way people thought of God from the Great Earth Mother of Old Europe, the beginning of the patriarchy, the single universal God, to the present complex mixture of visions of God.
Part Three is an analysis of current philosophies and visualizations of God found in Europe and the United States. It concludes with the hope that religions, sciences, politicians, and academics can work together to produce a set of proposals for sustainable, zero growth cultures on a stable planet.
