The Experience of God


In one sense, no one can have an ummediated experience of God, says renowned theologian Raimon Panikkar.  Yet, he asserts, we constantly encounter God as a question, as a veiled symbol of infinity or transcendence, or as an ineffable but beloved beyond.  We live and move in this vital medium.

In this beautiful meditation, Panikkar charts the paradoxed and possibilities of our experience of God.  Drawing on a wide range of sources, from the Bible and Western mystics to Vedas and the Bhagavad Gita, he probes human language and silence, adoration and alienation, to find the root of all our experience in God and its special character in Christian encounter with Jesus.  He concludes with reflections on the many places - such as love, joy, suffering, pardon, nature, silence and even evil - where we meet God today.
