Publisher's Summary

Erich Fromm's innovative analysis of the Old Testament as a striking early example of radical humanism. The Old Testament is one of the most carefully studied books in the world’s history. It is also one of the most misunderstood. This founding text of the world’s three largest religions is also, Erich Fromm argues, an impressive radical humanist text. He sees the stories of mankind’s transition from divided clans to united brotherhood as a tribute to the human power to overcome. Filled with hopeful symbolism, You Shall Be as Gods shows how the Old Testament and its tradition is an inspiring ode to human potential.

    Story
    "Fascinating new ideas"
    Would you listen to You Shall Be as Gods again? Why?

    I actually did listen to the first few chapters a second time, before proceeding with the rest, to focus more on the details of what was said.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of You Shall Be as Gods?

    That the Bible/God are about eliminating idol worship.


    What does Allan Robertson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The presentation was impressive. It wasn't just reading, it included styles that led me to think this is how Fromm himself might have expressed his ideas.


    Any additional comments?

    Agree or disagree with his opinions about the Bible and religion, it's thought-provoking and scholarly in its insights.

    Story
    "Prescient for our worlds' conflict against"

    The evil so evidenced from the macro of Islamic terror reigning through horrific brutality of the innocent to the micro experienced in our daily dealing with more and more seemingly soulless human beings. And thus chipping away at ones inner core values of what shape us into beings for good.
