RamiNashashibi: One of my obsessive pastimes is to read every book I can get my hands on about Jerusalem. Reading Karen Armstrong’s Jerusalem & so appreciate how full of love & empathy for sacred practice her writing is filled with.Heard her say that writing was her form of worship & I feel it

SophiaCycles: There are all these stories about gods going down into the underworld to slaughter demons. We all have to learn how to negotiate our unconscious worlds. We have to go into the labyrinth of our own selves and fight our own monsters. ~Karen Armstrong

ouseocracy: On a related note, Karen Armstrong did a good job in ‘The Battle for God’ of describing how and why literalism took over the Abrahamic faiths in the C20th. It’s not medievalism, nor is it a “return” to something old. Quite the opposite. It’s a very modern phenomenon.

imranahmad131: A few words on Islam: A short History By Karen Armstrong Authors like Karen Armstrong are what the world currently needs the most. It is the author's like these who make this world a more peaceful place for all faiths to coexist.

imranahmad131: Karen Armstrong claims that in other faiths, state was separated from religion so that "the religion could be liberated from corruption of state affairs and allow it to become more truly itself." Islam, however, is different.

mbw955: Just reading Karen Armstrong's Fields of Blood: Religion and the History of Violence. It would do some Dawkins/Harris et al inspired atheists some good in reading it, rather than the execrable Douglas Murray's whitewashing of white nationalist myth.

Bogomilbob: I can’t recommend Karen Armstrong’s short book on myth highly enough. The last section on modern literature is especially fascinating (and aligns with my own feeble offerings).

madrid_deity: Said's Orientalism is such a wonderful read. Can't believe there's Karen Armstrong doing there, who's less of a historian and more of a theatrical writer with overwhelming sensationalism disguise in 'history'.

RobNak67: The former nun argues that reconnecting with the spiritual side of nature could help us contend with the climate crisis.

MacPsy: Karen Armstrong: 'Sacred Nature'. 'We have to change not only our lifestyle but our whole belief system': the affirmation of the personal 'God' of Christianity and its associated beliefs is a snare and a delusion. God as 'Being Itself' includes us in sacred nature.

IntegralJesus: Karen Armstrong‘s A History of God was very good + only had several mistakes, I’d say there were one or two spelling mistakes or transliteration mistakes from Greek, and maybe one a.b philosophy here or there that was overgeneralized. But even that was done well enough to ignore.

redrustin: I often think of trauma-stories in terms of Karen Armstrong's image of the circular staircase: not a linear experience; at times you climb a few rungs up and then skirt down again; make another attempt.
