While philosophy believes it is impossible to have an experience of God without thesenses, theology claims that such an experience is possible, though potentially idolatrous. In thisengagingly creative book, John Panteleimon Manoussakis ends the impasse by proposing an aestheticallowing for a sensuous experience of God that is not subordinated to imposed categories orconcepts. Manoussakis draws upon the theological traditions of the Eastern Church, includingpatristic and liturgical resources, to build a theological aesthetic founded on the inverted gaze oficons, the augmented language of hymns, and the reciprocity of touch. Manoussakis explores how arelational interpretation of being develops a fuller and more meaningful view of the phenomenologyof religious experience beyond metaphysics and onto-theology.
