Understanding religious experiences: what the Bible says about spirituality

Book Cover
Average Rating
Pub. Date:
The series explores for general readers the interplay between the three dimensions of human experience in everyday life. Psychologist and ordained Presbyterian theologian Ellens (Near Eastern studies, U. of Michigan) explains the meaning of biblical stories about spiritual experiences and discusses spiritual experiences that ordinary people have today. His goal is to help readers understand the yearnings they have that are not filled by conventional activity, including participation in institutional religion.
