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.

HASH(0x985eabe8) out of 5 stars Not a Book for Everyone April 22 2016
By C. Skidmore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am not sure this book really answers the question implied by its title, but it is an interesting voyage into the prehistory of religion. For that reason I am finding it to be a very interesting read. It covers in great detail the pendulum swing from matriarchy to patriarchy, from goddess worship to god worship. For instance I did not know about the influence of the Celts and Druids throughout much of what is now Europe. Admittedly I am only two thirds through the book, so perhaps I have yet to find the answer, but what is interesting to me is how the new thought movement seems to be pushing the pendulum back toward a more matriarchic influence. The sub-title of the book is "redefining the sacred" and that is really what this book is about. I think we are constantly about the business of doing that. I would not recommend this book for everyone; however, if you are interested in the prehistory of religion, it is a great resource.
