What sort of ´´person´´ is God? Is it possible to approach him not as an object of religious reverence, but as the protagonist of the world´s greatest book--as a character who possesses all the depths, contradictions, and abiguities of a Hamlet? In this ´´brilliant, audacious book´´ (Chicago Tribune), a former Jesuit marshalls a vast array of learning and knowledge of the Hebrew Bible to illuminate God--and man--with a sense of discovery and wonder. Im Alten Testament ist Gott die Hauptfigur, unwandelbar und ewig, das meinen wir zu wissen. Doch Jack Miles beweist, dass sich in diesem großen literarischen Kunstwerk der Menschheit der Charakter Gottes ständig wandelt. Wann immer wir ihm begegnen, von der Genesis bis zum Buch Hiob, zeigt er ein anderes Gesicht: als Schöpfer, Zerstörer, Freund der Familie, Befreier, Henker, Feind, Zuschauer, Vater, Liebender oder Frau. Eine grandiose Idee faszinierend dargestellt: Gott als Romanheld, das Alte Testament als Geschichte seines Lebens. Am Ende ein trauriger Befund: Hiob, der von Gott Geschlagene, bringt den Herrn zum Schweigen. Die Frage nach der Gerechtigkeit ist nicht beantwortet. What sort of ´´person´´ is God?

WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE What sort of ´´person´´ is God? What is his ´´life story´´? Is it possible to approach him not as an object of religious reverence, but as the protagonist of the world´s greatest book-as a character who possesses all the depths, contradictions, and abiguities of a Hamlet? This is the task that Jack Miles-a former Jesuit trained in religious studies and Near Eastern languages-accomplishes with such brilliance and originality in God: A Biography . Using the Hebrew Bible as his text, Miles shows us a God who evolves through his relationship with man, the image who in time becomes his rival. Here is the Creator who nearly destroys his chief creation; the bloodthirsty warrior and the protector of the downtrodden; the lawless law-giver; the scourge and the penitent. Profoundly learned, stylishly written, the resulting work illuminates God and man alike and returns us to the Bible with a sense of discovery and wonder.
