For centuries Christians have argued about the nature of God. Behind these disputes lie very different visceral experiences of God's presence, each one suggesting a different type of spirituality and a different way of conceptualizing the divine reality. We will explore many of the divergent ways in which Christians have experienced God and examine the sometimes clashing understandings of God to which they lead. To accomplish this, we will examine spiritual autobiographies, devotional literature, hymnody, movies, and theology.
