On this show we read Galatians 1:11-24 and discuss mystical experiences. Written in honor of Marcus J. Borg, we talk about "The Varieties of Religious Experience" as American philosopher William James called them. I describe my mystical conversion experience.

We talk about Paul's mystical experiences and about how it provided him with his "vocational calling." I tell of my vocational callings, and how we can all be inspired.

We compare New Age spirituality with the many claims of mystical and supernatural experiences throughout the history of the Church and in every religion. Finally, Professor Westfall and I clash on New Age and Pagan religions.
