In The City of the Gods, John S. Dunne traces humanity’s political and social mythologies from ancient Sumer to the present, showing how they reflect the diverse responses of each era to the inevitability of death.
“A provocative and haunting study of the myths by which men through the ages have met the fact that they must die. The City of the Gods is a rare kind of interdisciplinary study . . . its scope and profundity mark Dunne as one of the most serious and original theologians in the country.” ~Christian Century
