Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Researchers Newberg and d'Aquili explore both the mystery and biology of the enduring human need for God, ritual, religion, and spirituality. Based on a long-term investigation of brain function and behavior and on studies conducted using high-tech imagery, this book proves that the religious impulse is rooted in the human brain.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 208-223) and index.
