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's The God Delusion and Daniel C. Dennett's Breaking the Spell, this book will be of interest to readers on both sides of a hot-button issue at the meeting place of science and faith.

About the Author:

Mario Beauregard is an associate professor in the Departments of Radiology and Psychology at the Universite de Montreal (Canada).

From AudioFile:

Why do some people feel God's presence, but others don't? Could it have something to do with our genes or the structure of our brains? The authors, a professor at the University of Montreal and a journalist, make a scholarly case for God by pointing out phenomena that cannot be explained by science, such as near-death experiences, premonitions, and the power of prayer. The material is heady, but narrator Patrick Lawlor keeps the experience pleasant with an enthusiastic tone that is appropriately tinged with wonder. Lawlor's voice occasionally takes on a mocking tone as Beauregard acerbically dismisses opposing views. This audiobook requires a lot of the listener but is worth the effort.
