Seminar 1:
The experience of God

Theological liberalism made very frequent reference to 'the experience of God', and the expression is still used often in the context of Christian spirituality. Proponents of neoorthodoxy disliked the expression intensely, tending to set 'faith' against 'experience', and downplaying talk of 'mystical experience'. Does it make sense today to speak of 'experience of God' ? If so, what of God can be experienced? And what does 'experience' mean in this context? When we read the mystics, are we correct or incorrect to read them as speaking about experiences of God? Professor Kevin Hart will address these questions in his seminar.
