How God Changes Your Brain: Breakthrough Findings from a Leading Neuroscientist Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

God is great—for your mental, physical, and spiritual health. Based on new evidence culled from brain-scan studies, a wide-reaching survey of people’s religious and spiritual experiences, and the authors’ analyses of adult drawings of God, neuroscientist Andrew Newberg and therapist Mark Robert Waldman offer the following breakthrough discoveries:

 

• Not only do prayer and spiritual practice reduce stress, but just twelve minutes of meditation per day may slow down the aging process.

• Contemplating a loving God rather than a punitive God reduces anxiety and depression and increases feelings of security, compassion, and love.

• Fundamentalism, in and of itself, can be personally beneficial, but the prejudice generated by extreme beliefs can permanently damage your brain.

• Intense prayer and meditation permanently change numerous structures and functions in the brain, altering your values and the way you perceive reality.

Both a revelatory work of modern science and a practical guide for readers to enhance their physical and emotional health, How God Changes Your Brain is a first-of-a-kind book about faith that is as credible as it is inspiring.

 

Synopsis:

"How God Changes Your Brain" is a highly practical, easy-to-read guide on the interface between spirituality and neuroscience, filled with useful information that can make your brain and your life better.--Daniel G. Amen, M.D.
