Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Endorsements: "In the context of Raimon Panikkar's massive life's work, this volume stands out as a theological meditation that is also a mystical hymn to the namelessness of God. The gift is Panikkar's ability to approach fundamental religious ideas with a new innocence, and to pierce beneath the façade of theological confusion, division, or laziness. There is an explosive force at work in his words ripping through the text, coloring it with hues and banging out harmonies that leave the reader wanting to probe more deeply and to understand more fully. The Experience of God: Icons of the Mystery is a seamless garment of praise for the religious dimension of life, for the trinitarian structure of reality, and, most of all, for silence." — Beverly Lanzetta, Research Scholar, Southwest Institute for Research on Women, University of Arizona Founder, Schola Divina

About the Author

Raimon Panikkar is one of the world's leaders in interreligious dialogue and the author of more than thirty books. Professor Emeritus of Comparative Philosophy and History of Religion at the University of California, Santa Barbara, he has in retirement returned to his native Catalonia.

Format: Paperback
This is a short and refreshing book, and Panikkar weaves an elegant summary of how we experience God. He draws together different spiritual traditions without flattening out their differences or claiming to have found insights 'behind' them. For him, 'God' is the experience of the depth of being and beyond being, transcendent yet immanent, personal and in communion. We experience God through the mediation of ourselves and our traditions and language. While writing from a Christian perspective, he is not dogmatic but rather shows quite subtly the mystical presuppositions of the Trinitarian formula and its possibilities for transforming our lives. His obvious scholarship and personal experience of God is on display. This is a model of interfaith theology.

I found Panikkar's 'Experience of God' a more accessible read than the Christophany treatise. I think maybe his writing is translated to a difficult reading vernacular...since he writes in Italian, or Spanish. However, he is a unique scholar of Abrahamic faith, having experienced God from many contexts. He maintains an academic objectivity which is possibly off-putting to 'soaked in Western Protestant oriented church people', but refreshing to seekers of wisdom, who can read such material without a slant.

Raimon Panikkar is excellent as usual. What a wonderful book. Hitting on all cylinders, Panikkar refers to several spiritual traditions in his effort to capture how we experience God. He gives special emphasis to the Christian tradition.

I read this book as part of an assignment for a class on Christian Theology. I thought it would be dealing with physical icons, so I was a little surprised when there were not any. It a deeply moving book about how we experience "God." I have put that in quotations, because the author feels that even that word is limiting. Labels have a way of limiting our interaction with the Divinity and that is explored in this book. A great read and I will read it again for pleasure to absorb more of the insight.
