Reviews - What do customers think about Knowing with the Heart: Religious Experience and Belief in God?

Reasons from the Heart  Nov 21, 2009
Roy Clouser eludes the apologetic of rigid and strict proof for God's existence and embraces the idea of semi-fideism. He asserts that "the heart has its reasons the mind will never know." He denies the strict fideism of spiritual "hunches" or "cozy feelings" as he aims to press the argument from intuition; additionally he offers arguments from the first principles of mathematics, temporal-spatio realms, and motion. He claims that he is utilizing Pascal's "reason's of the heart." He affirms that Christians are justified to know God is real as much as one can believe in the scientific method and principles of mathematics.

The author:

- Denies truth based on mere feelings
- Affirms an argument from self-evidency
- Rejects relativism

Romans 1 and the postfall biblical framework reject the idea that the unaided human heart can submit to God's truth (Jeremiah: "the heart is
desperately wicked"). Clouse quotes Aristotle, Frege, Dummet, Barth, Luther, and Calvin. Additionally he discusses axioms, Aristotle's analytics with extensive chapters on self-evident truths, beliefs in God and the axiom of equals, and the types of religious knowledge. Even though I disagree with the author's a priori commitments and his conclusions, this work dispenses a very readable and thoughtful apologetic on important epistemological issues and problems.

by Michael Robinson, author of numerous apologetic books including: God Does Exist! and
The Necessary Existence of God: The Proof of Christianity Through Presuppositional Apologetics
Christian argumentation at its best!  Jun 9, 1999
This book is powerful! Written at the college level and in a fun-to-read question and answer format, this book presents an argument for the true knowledge of God that cannot be ignored.
A wonderful, thoughtful, book from a very precise thinker.  Jan 29, 1999
Dr. Clouser very precisely outlines the connection between one's self-evident experience(s) of God and one's right to claim that s/he knows God. Rather than try to prove that one should believe in God, Clouser shows how one's belief in God comes about from one's experiences of God, whether they be from in-your-face-see-glowing-angels type of experiences, or just the knowledge of God that comes from walking with Him your whole life. Clouser's understanding of Pascal's theme of the heart focuses on the idea of self-evidency, instead of feelings, and instead of what one would usually categorize as an "experience of God." Top-notch writing, very understandable. This is a prime example of great Christian philosophy.
