Colleen Shantz argues that they have been held back both by a bias against religious ecstasy and by the limits of the Biblical texts: How do you responsibly access someone else s experience, particularly experience as unusual and debated as religious ecstasy?

And how do you account responsibly for the role of experience in that person s thought? Paul in Ecstasy pursues these questions through a variety of disciplines most notably neuroscience. This study provides cogent explanations for bewildering passages in Paul s letters, outlines a much greater influence of such experience in Paul s life and letters, and points to its importance in Christian origins.
