In point of fact, Laurence Gardner provides a treasure trove of recent discoveries, lesser known facts, critical detail, unbiased analysis, and genuinely thoughtful understanding on the nature of the Biblical God. His latest book is an extraordinary, well-researched and well-organized treatise on a quest to find evidence that supports (or denies) the "long-standing and widespread notion of God's existence." The Origin of God subsequently considers a wide variety of sources, their credibility, how they agree or conflict with each other, and how the sum total of the resulting knowledge can lead each of us to a better understanding of God.
Despite the controversial nature of the subject, the author is able to provide an unbiased, persuasive picture of the various ways that ancient peoples perceived their deity (or deities). In the process, The Origin of God provides the reader with the raw material to reach their own conclusions. Both scholarly and academically correct, the book is also highly accessible to the lay reader. The fact Mr. Gardner also writes well, clearly, and in a manner easy to understand, is just icing on the cake.
and well referenced research on the many aspects of secular and
religious history, challenges what we have been taught about history,
science, religion and God. As with his first book Bloodline of the
Holy Grail, this book is bound to be a best seller, and will create
waves within the rigid established doctrines of those who seek to
dominate and control free men and women. This masterpiece completed
before his death from a long illness in August 2010, brings together
from his and other considerable archives of research and information,
the most important story of our incredible ancestors, their advanced
civilisation, and the identity of the flesh and blood individual and
his family, who led the re-start of civilisation and agriculture. Only
after they had disappeared from the Middle Eastern scene were they
worshipped in the religious sense; and they were then so enveloped in
supernatural trappings that their intrinsic advanced and benevolent
characteristics were swamped in a morass of pseudo-religious adulation
