Product Description

Drawing on a wide range of sources, from the Bible and Western mystics to the Vedas and the Bhagavad Gita, in The Experience of God: Icons of the Mystery, world-renowned Christian-Hindu thinker Raimon Panikkar probes human language and silence, adoration and alienation, to find the root of all our experience in God and its special character in the Christian encounter with Jesus.

"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 facade 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 and author of Radical Wisdom

Publisher's Description

In this beautiful meditation, Panikkar charts the paradoxes and possibilities of our experience of God. Drawing on a wide range of sources, from the Bible and Western mystics to the Vedas and the Bhagavad Gita, he probes human language and silence, adoration and alienation, to find the root of all our experience in God and its special character in Christian encounter with Jesus. He concludes with reflections on the many places - such as love, joy, suffering, pardon, nature, silence, and even evil - where we meet God today.
