This study deals with the role of phenomenology in explaining the making of the world, in particular with regard to religion. It is shown that in dealing with people's responses to life, the world and what is regarded to be beyond the known world means recognizing the restrictions provided by language and knowledge. It is also shown how this creates difficulties as to the claim within religion to express what is beyond the known and not directly available by means of ordinary language.
