Synopsis by Sarah Ing

Based on the best-selling book by Karen Armstrong, this two-part documentary explores the evolution of monotheism. History of God starts way back with roots in paganism and ends with the final splintering of religion into three major branches: Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. From the practice of sacrifice to the development of the Trinity, Armstrong's research is dense. In addition to Armstrong, several other religious experts are included in this presentation. The result is a far-reaching look at man's interpretation of the almighty.
