Salon.com calls Karen Armstrong the most "interesting religion writer today." It was her 1993 release A History of God: The 4,000-Year Quest for Judaism, Christianity, and Islam that first won her acclaim. Armstrong's presentation today is based on her latest title, The Case for God. Starting with the Paleolithic Age and moving to the present, she reveals mankind's unending pursuit of a higher power. 7:30 p.m. Wortham Center, 500 Texas.
