The Case for God is a book by Karen Armstrong. It is an answer to the recent atheism of Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris and Daniel Dennett and focuses on the three great monotheistic traditions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam from the paleolithic age to the present day. Also included are Buddhism and Hinduism.

Among the themes of the book are apophatic theology and intellectualism versus practice. Armstrong asserts that the fundamental reality, later called God, Brahman, nirvana or Tao, transcends human concepts and thoughts, and can only be known through devoted religious practice. This book is mind mush.
