Around the world, there is a wide variety of ways in which people perceive God. Our speaker, Rev. Jim Burklo, senior associate dean of religious and spiritual life at USC, describes fifteen different concepts that humans have of God. Seven of these fit into the broad category of a supernatural God, four are versions of a natural God, and the final four are some variation of a transcendental God.
