Heralding a major series of retellings of international myths by authors from around the world, Armstrong's characteristically insightful and eloquent book serves as a brilliant and thought-provoking introduction to myth in the broadest sense - and why we dismiss it only at our peril.
"Armstrong writes with sensitivity and wisdom. She employs a breadth of learning that reflects the scintillating, shifting light and shade of human experience." ( The Times)

K. Armstrong is a real TEACHER,, listen carefully
In less than 3 hrs, Karen Armstrong exposes the essential theories of modern scholarship in the history of religion: How myth came about? What purpose it serves in human life? An excellent introduction to the beginner and an elegant summary to the expert. Sandra Burr, the narrator, is marvelous: clear and not hurried. I wish she read more non-fiction. But the paper book is 7 chapters, and this audio hopes that I enjoyed the recording after chapter 6!
