Subject: Re: A History of God

I just finished Karen ARmstrong's book. While I found her bias against

Western Christianity a little heavy handed, I found the book interesting.

Especially her contention that Islam in its original Koranic form wa

smore tolerant of other religions and even of women than the current

version which she claims was hijacked by macho Arab imperialists. Any

comments? Please address me directly, if possible.
