Abigail asked if I had ever had any spiritual experiences in the past. At first I said “no.” I had forgotten two events early in life. Well, not actually forgotten, but set them aside. That’s what people do in our secular age. A woman I know recently took a boat trip up the Amazon. One […]
Begin a journey with God…
He was a lifelong agnostic. But one day he had occasion to pray. To his vast surprise, God answered– in words. Being a philosopher, he has a lot of questions. And God had a lot to tell him.

About the Author
Dr. Jerry L. Martin has served as head of the National Endowment for the Humanities and of the philosophy department at the University of Colorado at Boulder.

The first time God spoke to me I didn’t believe He existed.
Billy Graham once reported, “I know God exists—I talked to him this morning.” Theatrical posturing, I thought. Graham may have been talking to God, but I did not believe for a minute that God was talking back. I remembered psychologist Thomas Szasz’s comment: “If somebody talks to God, that’s praying. If God talks to them, that’s schizophrenia.”
I had been raised in a Christian home, but those beliefs did not survive Philosophy 101, where arguments for the existence of God were shot down like skeets. Since that time, I had been what one of my professors, Philip Wheelwright, called himself: a “pious agnostic”—respectful of belief in a higher reality but, when it came right down to it, staying eye-level with the natural world, the world of experience as I then knew it.
It is said that you do not have to believe in God in order to pray. That is what happened to me.
I had been divorced for many years. I always thought I would be happier married, but as the decades rolled on without Miss Right showing up, I began to think she never would.
Then one day, the phone rang. . .
