Totally get this. If you ever have the time that Karen Armstrong book blows the roof off. In a great way. She's amazing.

Not necessarily, with the differences in times and authors it makes less sense to accept it in a singular sense.

Agree, but as soon as you allow that loophole all hell breaks loose on its historical validity.

I first read the description as:

Moving from the Paleolithic age to the present, Karen Armstrong details the great lengths to which humankind has gone in order to experience a sacred reality that it called by many names, such as God, Batman, Nirvana, Allah, or Dao.

I'd say each book (or series of books, since some of them were written at the same time) should be taken on its own accord in terms of historical validity. For example, the Torah (first five chapters of the Bible, might be four i forget) can be taken with a larger grain of salt than other biblical texts because it was created to justify Judaic laws after the Jews were conquered by the Persians. The Persian emperor allowed for autonomy in religion and law as long as they were based off of holy texts, so while some things were earlier carried by word of mouth like Genesis, things like Deutoronomy can be written off as products of their time.
