Book cover for The Experience of God: Being, Consciousness, Bliss

Order:   Paperback   Hardcover   Kindle   Nook  

A deeply thoughtful discussion of meanings of "God" in different religious traditions - Judaism, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism, Islam, Taoism, Buddhism and various paganisms - showing how much they have in common, and how all of them differ from atheism. The most powerful evidence for the existence of God, Hart argues, is human experience.


"David Hart can always be relied on to offer a perspective on Christian faith that is both profound and unexpected. In this masterpiece of quiet intellectual and spiritual passion, he magnificently sets the record straight as to what sort of God Christians believe in and why."
- Rowan Williams, University of Cambridge

"David Bentley Hart's new book is a feast- stylish and substantial. Bringing together Sanskritic analyses of God's being with Latin and Greek and Arabic ones, this is a considerable achievement by one of the most distinctive voices in contemporary theology."
- Paul J. Griffiths, Duke Divinity School
