The Sense of the Presence of God 1961–1962

John Baillie

Summary

Table of Contents

Abstract

The Sense of the Presence of God assesses the manner in which Christians sense God and respond. Faith is the base touching point or ‘the primary mode of apprehension’ through which the presence of God enters into human life. What this leads to, however, is not simply the spiritual development of the individual, but the wholeness of the community and humanity. It is within the community that the expression of faith is tested just as scientific theory is persistently measured against new empirical data. Presence is manifest in living faith, rather than in theological doctrine, and it demands a response from human will and action.
KEY WORDS: Glaube, Doxa, Reality, Certainty, Kant, Spinoza, Hegel, Providence, Wholeness, Gratitude
