    The history of myth is the history of humanity; our stories and beliefs, our curiosity and attempts to understand the world, link us to our ancestors and each other. Myths help us make sense of the universe. Armstrong takes us from the Palaeolithic period and the myths of the hunters right up to the "Great Western Transformation" of the last 500 years and the discrediting of myth by science.

    "K. Armstrong is a real TEACHER,, listen carefully"
    Overall

    In less than 3 hrs, Karen Armstrong exposes the essential theories of modern scholarship in the history of religion: How myth came about? What purpose it serves in human life? An excellent introduction to the beginner and an elegant summary to the expert. Sandra Burr, the narrator, is marvelous: clear and not hurried. I wish she read more non-fiction. But the paper book is 7 chapters, and this audio hopes that I enjoyed the recording after chapter 6!
