God free pdf Who or what is God? How do different religions interpret God's existence? How can we know God? Many people believe in God- not just throughout history but also in the present day. But who or what is it they believe in? Many different and sometimes conflicting answers have been suggested to this question. This Very Short Introduction explores some of the answers provided by philosophers, poets, and theologians, and considers why some people believe in God and others do not. John Bowker explores how the major religions established their own distinctive beliefs about God and how they interpret God's existence, and concludes by looking at how our understanding of God continues to evolve.

These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly.
