Does religious experience come from God, or is it just the random firing of neurons in the brain? Drawing on brain research on Carmelite nuns that has attracted major media attention and provocative new research in near-death experiences, The Spiritual Brain proves that genuine, life-changing spiritual events can be documented. The authors make a convincing case for what many in science are loathe to consider: that it is God who creates our spiritual experiences, not the brain. Challenging the conclusions of such books as Richard Dawkins' The God Delusion and Daniel C. Dennett's Breaking the Spell, this book will be of interest to listeners on both sides of a hot-button issue at the meeting place of science and faith.More
"This conclusion is beyond science. Beauregard argues well in clear, readable prose, avoiding highly technical language." (Library Journal)
"This book serves as a lively introduction to a field where neuroscience, philosophy, and secular/spiritual cultural wars are navoidably intermingled." (Publishers Weekly)
