This book addresses one of the oldest questions posed to religious believers: if God made everything, who made God?

Most recently levelled by the New Atheists, the question was asked in ancient Greece and has preoccupied religious believers in the centuries since. Here, renowned scholar Robert Banks explores the history of the objection – from its earliest vocalization in the ancient world to its most famous opponents, Freud, Marx, and others.

Ideal for anyone with a general interest in new atheism, for those studying religion, or wanting to sort out what (if any) elements of their idea of God are man-made.

Reviews for And Man Created God

"Overall this book presents many fascinating ideas that could benefit both the scholar and the lay individual with a bent toward deep, inquisitive thinking." Ray McAllister
"Robert Banks asks us to separate out God and human beings, examine the role of Christ as part of understanding God, use cultural and sociological analysis sensibly ... to live and demonstrate our belied and faith: this is the only way in which the seeker and believer can find God." Stuart Hannabuss
