The contradictions in the Bible and the Qur'an are self-evident. The faithful in each religion usually claim a hidden divine purpose while the atheists typically attribute them to human imperfections when writing a book. Still, none of these explanations adequately explain the blatant gaps in the narrative of books and stories that sprang in the midst of very intelligent societies. Surely, a better narrative could've been written. So why wasn't it? In God’s Untold Story, Nour Douchi reveals ancient mysteries that explain many gaps and contradictions in the three main monotheistic religions of Islam, Christianity and Judaism. He narrates the sequence of events that lead to the cultural amnesia which plagued human history for the past 2,500 years due to successive waves of cultural vandalism, how patriarchy began to take shape 4,300 years ago, and how monotheism changed the world's spirituality without shaking away its polytheistic roots by converting previous deities to angels and demons. He explains how spirituality and language evolved, hand in hand, until language became virtually inseparable from religion. He draws threads from multiple disciplines and areas of history, mythology, and literature to reveal mysteries and facts previously unknown to mainstream scholars, both religious and secular. In a riveting analysis of different Semitic languages as well as English, the author exposes the nature of Satan and his relationship with God, and why Satan seems to be so powerful, almost as if he is another deity, not just a creation of God. He answers questions as critical as those related to why Adam was punished so harshly and became mortal while Satan continues to be such a powerful being, reigning almost like a deity himself. In this thrilling book, the author peels the layers of complexity, one by one, so that even the average reader can both enjoy and understand it.
