The Mind of God: Neuroscience, Faith, and a Search for the Soul

by Lombard, Jay (Author), Kennedy, Patrick J. (Author)

ISBN: 9780553418699

As featured in the New York Times-now in paperback! With cutting-edge research and provocative case studies, a renowned behavioral neurologist provides insights to some of the most curious spiritual questions we all face.

Readers who enjoyed Mike McHargue's Finding God in the Waves will be drawn to the confluence of science and spirituality in The Mind of God. Like neurologist Oliver Sacks, Dr. Lombard employs case studies from his own behavioral neurology practice to explore the spiritual conundrums that we all ask ourselves: Is there a God? Does my life have purpose? What's the meaning of life? Are we free? What happens to us when we die?

For Dr. Lombard, these metaphysical questions are a jumping-off point to explore the brain in search of the seat of the soul. It is neuroscience, the author contends; how we and our brains interpret reality can lead us to a deeper and more fulfilling faith, which can yield more fulfilling experiences in all areas of our lives.

Lombard's mix of personal experience in the medical field (including compelling stories such as the man who thought he was pregnant and the woman who literally scared herself to death), as well as his own visionary insight into spiritual experience, has much to tell us about the nature and awesome power of belief and what we can do to focus it in a positive direction. If you want to have more meaning in your life or a deeper relationship with God, then this book can radically change the way you interpret the world around you.
