Editorial Reviews

Review

"The argument to God 'from religious experience' is often presented as an argument from a very peculiar type of experience which religious people have, quite unlike our other experiences. This book is unique in describing so comprehensively and within one volume the data of many different kinds of related human experience, data often hard to describe and so easy to neglect. It thus locates the 'argument from religious experience' within a rich and deep background, which brings it to life and makes it much more plausible. I am very happy to commend this wide-ranging book, to what I hope will be a wide-ranging public." — From the Foreword by Richard Swinburne, FBA, Emeritus Nolloth Professor of the Philosophy of the Christian Religion, University of Oxford, UK

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Mark D. Thomas on October 9, 2011
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Though I haven't read this book yet (as it has yet reached my house), I'm posting this review for 2 main reasons:

1) I thought it'd be worth while to mention to those ignorant of this author, that this is the same Professor who wrote an essay in The Blackwell Companion to Natural Theology; what many apologists and theists are saying is the best book on the cumulative case for theism. Not only did he write a chapter in it, many whom I've spoken to (myself included), say that his chapter on Religious Experiences was one of the best chapters found in the book. With that in mind, I think that if you're interested in such a subject, Kai Man-kwan is one of the best candidates for an agnostic's attention when considering Physicalism vs The Ultramundane.

2) Since Amazon doesn't show the table of contents here like they do with many books, I thought it'd be helpful to list them below so one can further contemplate whether this would be a worthy purchase.

After I read it, If I'm not satisfied I will lower the review accordingly.
