Wonderful book. Thank you Burkowski and Fleming for a well written, well researched book. I think that, now more than ever, people should be aware of, not only how things are, but why things are.

This is a valuable read for anyone who wants to understand the sociology behind the rise of Western religions including the idea of the Abrahamic God. With a companion website that provides archaeological insights, Why Men Made God is thoroughly researched, carefully written. It is easily read with references of academic quality that will allow one to learn, at any level of intensity, why men made gods.

I like the writing style and that the discussion is situated in concrete historical context. The authors took me beyond my very general knowledge of events and integrated them to tell a very compelling story of how we came to be where we are as a patriarchal culture, and where we might be taking our species - for good or for ill.

This is a very well researched and well written book about the history of religion and human behaviour. It is easy to read and elicits much thought and reflection on our society over thousands of years, as well as today.
