First Paragraph from the chapter, "The Argument from Religious Experience"

The Christian worldview claims that humans bear the image of God, a Being who is personal, relational, and communicative and who created humans for relationships with himself based on knowledge. Being made in the divine image makes concourse with God possible and, in a sense, natural. Being God’s image bearers establishes a created affinity between God and humanity, despite the fractures, fissures, and stress points caused by sin. Moreover, we are creatures who may recognize God’s actions in our midst or through the lens of history. This book has argued that God has revealed himself in the created order (cosmological and design arguments), and the human conscience (the moral argument). The Bible and Christians through the centuries have also claimed that God reveals himself through various kinds of human experiences.
