In our increasingly secular world, holy texts are at best seen as irrelevant, and at worst as an excuse to incite violence, hatred and division. So what value, if any, can scripture hold for us today? Karen Armstrong shows that for many centuries these texts were viewed as a means for the individual to connect with the divine, to transcend their physical existence, and to experience a higher level of consciousness. Armstrong argues that only by rediscovering an open engagement with their holy texts will the world's religions be able to curtail arrogance, intolerance and violence.
