Experiencing God is considered a modern Christian classic. Despite this, my thoughts on the book are mixed. The point of the book is to find ways to experience God. In particular to see where God is working, and to be involved in His work.

Overall, I thought that the principles that Blackaby presents for doing this are pretty solid/5(). John E. Smith has contributed to contemporary philosophy in primarily four distinct capacities; first, as a philosopher of religion and God; second, as an indefatigable defender of philosophical reflection in its classical sense (a sense inclusive of, but not limited to, metaphysics); third, as a participant in the reconstruction of experience and reason so boldly inaugurated by Hegel then Cited by: 1.

Hart's The Experience of God is a wonderfully written book expressing the basic need to understand what the major religions mean when they use the word God. Hart pulls from Judeo-Christian, Hindu, and Islamic sources to show that God does not mean a being among beings but the source, the font of all being/5().

The Experience of God is still an outstanding addition to the literature on God, not least for its survey of so many of the world’s great faiths.

It is also a fine piece of work of Christian apologetics, and a major contribution to debate on science and religion."—Andrew Davison, Times Literary Supplement. The subtleness of Keller’s preaching style translates well into book form.

The Reason for God exudes warmth in its simple and understated style, a manner of writing that stands in stark contrast to the exaggerated antics of Keller’s atheistic foes. The Reason for God is divided into two halves.

In the first part (provocatively titled “The. The Wesleyan Quadrilateral, or Methodist Quadrilateral, is a methodology for theological reflection that is credited to John Wesley, leader of the Methodist movement in the late 18th century.

The term itself was coined by 20th century American Methodist scholar Albert C. Outler. This method based its teaching on four sources as the basis of theological and doctrinal development.

He described Christianity as a house that included Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, and various strands of Protestantism.

"The Reason for God, Belief in an Age of Skepticism," by Timothy Keller, is a pro-Christian work which lays out the major criticisms that modern skeptics have about faith and in particular Christianity.

The author takes on each criticism and provides the relevant Christian response. Hart’s book, then, is a sophisticated version of old God-of-the-Gaps arguments, and it’s gained traction because of two things: Hart’s exceedingly rarified notion of.

To talk about “experience of God” in Buddhism is to misconstrue Buddhism entirely. In contrast, the heart of Christianity is God making an appeal of love to the human beings he has created.

God's Original Design Was for Man to Live Out of Revelation Knowledge God designed man to be a daily recipient of revelation knowledge.

In the Garden of Eden, man walked and talked with God. Adam and Eve were receiving revelation knowledge daily from Almighty God.

These three essential characteristics of the true Church bear directly on our experience and understanding of faith, reason, knowledge, and truth. Faith and Reason Discourse about the relationship between faith and reason is centuries old, very sophisticated, and finely nuanced.
