The God Shaped Brain

The God Shaped Brain is written by Christian Psychiatrist, Timothy Jennings, M.D..  Dr. Jenning’s passion can be felt as you read this book. He takes neuroscience and shows how our view of God actually changes the brain itself.  There is a reason why God wants us to call him Abba Father that goes beyond what you’ve ever imagined. One of the aspects of the book that I find most interesting was how he shows the connection of science and the person’s belief system and perspective of who God is.

This book would be higher on the scale of deep and tough read. I found myself reading sections over and over again just to grasp the depth of knowledge and wisdom Dr. Jennings offers. If you are a thinker and processor at heart, this book will be as one of your favorite. Many points in this book I use for my practice with many of my clients.
