Author: Karen Armstrong

Genre: Philosophy, History, Religion

Karen Armstrong writes on religion and is one of the most compassionate and balanced authors I have come across. She has been recognized with Order of the British Empire, is also a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and recently won the TED Prize which she donated to Charter for Compassion. Her multiple best selling books have been on Christianity (she spent time as a Roman Catholic nun), Islam (won Muslim understanding award), Judaism (history of Jerusulam) and generally on religion (See another best seller reviewed here, The Case for God).
