A historical survey analyzing the place of God in every major religion and brings out the continual discovery of the only one who has endured.
Man's interest in God is as old as his own existence. He has struggled ever since his creation to find his Creator. He tried to see the Celestial Being in different forms; sometimes as the sun, the moon, or the constellation of stars. And sometimes as a mighty river for a lofty mountain or the earth itself. However, the Supreme Being continued to elude man.
Then doubts arose about His very existence in some quarters, more particularly in the latter half of the last millennium. Atheists gathered force and some even argued whether there was such a thing as God; They declared that even if He existed, He was dead. However, this was only a transient reaction; as time passed, His need was felt more than ever before.
