Reflections on spiritual experience


Chris Polhill

The spiritual encounter with the ‘otherness’ that Christians call God is often seen as the province of the very holy, or is simply dismissed in our rational, scientific culture – but it is part of the experience of being human, recognised down the ages.

In this book you will find a wide variety of spiritual experiences openly explored – from the mystical to the practical, from very personal reflections, to stories with passion for social justice. For some people, the significant encounter comes during one of life’s more traumatic times, such as illness or death; for others as part of everyday living. Insights from Christian spiritual tradition are linked to each experience, including that of God’s ‘absence’. Some contributors are clergy, others are not, and there is a broad range of age and life experience among the writers. They are all ordinary, extraordinary people.
