This book deals with profound experiences - emotional, intellectual, highly charged, usually sudden, unannounced, often odd, some weird, others glorious. Do these experiences mean anything? Are we puzzling over questions we can't answer no matter how long we try? Is that puzzling itself meaningful? If so, is that meaning significant? Are these experiences actually signals that there is something more than to human life - our human life, my life - perhaps something transcendent? The book ends with a discussion of the need for an apologetic that includes a wide range of biblical revelation - not just religious experience, but historical and scientific evidence and rational arguments involving both a positive case and a negative refutation of objections.
