|Précis of 'Perceiving God'|

|Paper - Abstract|
The central thesis of the book is that experiential awareness of God – the "perception of God", as I call it – can provide epistemic justification for certain kinds of beliefs about God. I call such beliefs 'M-beliefs' ('M' for manifestation), beliefs to the effect that God is doing something vis-a-vis the subject-strengthening, guiding, communicating a message, etc – or to the effect that God has some (allegedly) perceivable property-goodness, power, lovingness, etc.
