Abstract

God is not just a hypothesis for the religiously devoted. He is a Living Reality who permeates every aspect of their lives. Religious experiences sometimes convey such a heightened sense of reality that the conviction they instill transforms the lives of the experients. Furthermore, religious experiences are often world–transforming as welljust contemplate the immense impact of people like Moses, St Paul, Augustine, William Wilberforce, andtheir ilk on Western civilization. But are these religious experiences trustworthy?.
