Inhaltsangabe: Is it possible to approach God not as an object of religious reverence, but as the protagonist of the world's greatest book--as a character who posses all the depths, contradictions, and ambiguities of a Hamlet? This is the task that Jack Miles, a former Jesuit trained in religious studies and Near Eastern languages, accomplishes with brilliance and originality in God: A Biography. 2 cassettes.

Rezension: Treating the Bible as a literary text is a standard approach in certain areas of scholarship. Jack Miles' innovation is to treat God as the main protagonist of this literary work, and to analyze his "character" as revealed in the text. Miles, a former Jesuit who studied in Rome and Jerusalem, and has a doctorate in Near Eastern languages, analyzed the Hebrew Bible (for the most part like the Old Testament, but ordered differently) to arrive at his literary exegesis. This God, it is clear, is certainly a complex character. Undoubtedly male, but possessed of seemingly multiple personalities, He is alternately creator/destroyer, protector/executioner, and warrior/lawgiver. Miles' "reading" of God, whose proactive role at the beginning develops into a passive silent presence, is entertaining, thoughtful and a worthy winner of the 1996 Pulitzer Prize.
