God's Next Life

Jack Miles, director of the Humanities Center at the Claremont Graduate School, is author of the acclaimed book God: A Biography.

Historically, monotheism emerged out of the polytheism of the Canaaite Nomads. Now aren't we at the other end of the process, nomads again, postmodern and placeless, living a life of fragments?
