Paul and the Religious Experience of Reconciliation

Diasporic Community and Creole Consciousness
  • By Gilbert Bond
$28.99
($40.00)
In the ancient world as in contemporary experience, religion is a vital context in which people become who they are and establish themselves with an identity. This process of constructing the self is not only a psychological process and a phenomenological reality; it can also be a deeply religious experience. Using the phenomenological tradition of Edmund Husserl and the understanding of religious experience as delineated by William James, Gilbert Bond reaches back to the New Testament to interpret the story of Paul's conversion as a religious experience of the self's creation.
