This book is written from the point of view of human experience. God and the meaning of religion will be sought out in our human experience. Here a common basis for all religion may be found. Christianity in general and Catholicism in particular are also rooted in our humanity. It is here that the uniqueness of the Christian-Catholic religion can be uncovered.
