Living with the Gods: On Beliefs and Peoples

Living with the Gods: On Beliefs and Peoples

One of the central facts of human existence is that every society shares a set of beliefs and assumptions - a faith, an ideology, a religion - that goes far beyond the life of the individual. These beliefs are an essential part of a shared identity. They have a unique power to define - and to divide - us, and are a driving force in the politics of much of the world today.

    Like MacGregor?s other books this is both immensely readable and a testament to his own wide curiosity, knowledge and sense of humanity in its broadest sense. I hesitated before reading this having no religious sensibility at all and while its focus did make it slightly less absorbin...

    This is another excellent book from Neil MacGregor. I have no expertise in this area, but as a lay reader I found it a thoughtful, erudite and immensely illuminating book. MacGregor takes a similar approach to that in his previous outstanding books, A History Of The World in 100 Obj...

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b099xhmj 1/30: The Beginnings of Belief: The programme visits the cave in southern Germany where fragments of ivory were discovered in 1939. These fragments were gradually pieced together by archaeologists decades later to re-assemble the figure. Some...

    OMG, a new book coming out soon?! I have to buy it!!! ??? have been waiting for ages ...

    Marvelous reading for these long dark evenings. Beautiful words elegantly strung together in sentences surrounding images of prescient meaning. I wish they hadn't dragged Grayson Perry into it though, he clearly doesn't know what he's talking about. ...

    I went to the exhibition that ties in with this book. My review of the exhibition is here: https://hazelstainer.wordpress.com/20... ...

    A wonderful book on different aspect of religion and how it shapes our life. It's full of great illustrations and surely give you a lot of food for thought. Highly recommended! Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC ...

    OMG, a new book coming out soon?! I have to buy it!!! ??? have been waiting for ages ...

    A wonderful book on different aspect of religion and how it shapes our life. It's full of great illustrations and surely give you a lot of food for thought. Highly recommended! Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC ...
