Publisher's Summary

Brain research has found that our thoughts and beliefs affect our physical, mental and spiritual health. Mind and body are interrelated, and we are designed for healthy relationships of love and trust. When we understand God as good and loving, we flourish. Unfortunately, many of us have distorted images of God and mostly think of him in fearful, punitive ways. This leads us into unhealthy patterns of self-defeating behaviors and toxic relationships. But our lives can change when God renews our minds with a truer picture of him.

Psychiatrist Tim Jennings unveils how our brains and bodies thrive when we have a healthy understanding of who God is. He dispels common misconceptions about God and shows how different God concepts affect the brain differently. Our brains can adapt, change and rewire with redeemed thinking that frees us from unnecessary pain and suffering. Discover how science and Scripture come together to bring healing and transformation to our lives.

Some very unbiblical teachings.

Completely condradicts the Bible and Ellen White. The author knows it and doesn't care or at least thinks his interpretations are higher.

exceptional work and termanology

I had never heard of Dr. Jenning prior to an aquaintence mentioning his name. Having read Dr. Curt Thompson I immediately became intrigued. Dr. Jennings exceeded my expectations with a thoughtful blend of understandable brain insight that helps reveal the nature of our true God. I too was raised in a fundamental church structure that kept me laying awake at night as a young boy fearfully wondering if any unconfessed sin remained inside and if I would wake to find that I was the only one left behind if Jesus returned. Such abusive constructs of God are difficult to unravel in the mind. Dr. Jennings work is a blessing to me and the kingdom of God, as many believers rightly understand our God of Love due to this work.

Excellent

I loved this book. Very scientifically and Scripturally-based without going overboard. An excellent book for Christians and non-Christians, alike.

Really good

I really enjoyed this book. I’m a religious neuroscientist and liked his views on God & the brain. There were a few things that I felt were cringey/ were a stretch of a connection between the brain & God. However, this was a great book overall! Teaches about Gods true nature with a spin of neuro. I recommend!
