"Thou shalt have no other gods before me."--Exodus 20:3, the 1st Commandment Gods Before him is a look at mythology and religion with a special focus on Judaism and Christianity in relation to the religious beliefs of popular ancient cultures. It examines gods such as Zeus, Horus, Enki, Prometheus, etc. and also explores the relevance of these bygone deities to society today and their presence in popular culture. Why would God, the creator of heaven and Earth and all in between, be jealous of anyone or anything? What did the ancients believe happened to you when you died before the gospel of Jesus Christ? What does it mean to be made in God's image? How are the gods of myth relevant today? What is the difference between the God of the Bible and the gods of myth? Gods Before Him answers these plus many other important questions about popular mythology and current religion. It takes a rare and fascinating look at some of the gods before, during and in the Bible. Author Stuart Mason is a mythologist and student of theology who uses ancient and original sources to provide a one-stop reference guide that is packed with information yet easy to read. A must have for your next conversation about religion and the Bible.
