Contents:
Introduction: spectral evidences -- The explanation in experience and the explanation of experience -- Justification by reasons alone -- Perennialism revisited -- The miracle of minimal foundationalism -- Loves noble historie: Teresa of Avila's mystical theology -- Modernity and its discontents.
Review: "Recently, many philosophers of religion have sought to defend the rationality of religious belief by shifting the burden of proof onto the critic of religious belief. Matthew Bagger argues that the commitment to supernatural explanations implicit in the religious experiences employed to justify religious belief contradicts the modern ideal of human flourishing. For contrast, and to demonstrate the indispensability of history, he includes a study of Teresa of Avila's mystical theology. The controversial supernatural explanations implicit in extraordinary religious experience place the burden of proof on the believer."--Jacket.
