Product Description

Brain research has found that our beliefs affect our physical, mental and spiritual health. When we understand God as good and loving, we flourish. But many of us have distorted images of God that lead us into unhealthy patterns of self-defeating behaviors and toxic relationships.
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.
Unabridged audio CD; approximately 7.5 hours; 6 CDs; narrated by Sean Runnette.

Publisher's Description

"Paying attention to the findings of neuroscience is tantamount to paying attention to God's creation. And doing that leads us--with the proper guide--to God's story and his intentions for us. Tim Jennings is that proper guide. An experienced healer with a palpable spirit of humility, he takes the reader past the trite, superficial motifs of easy spirituality that clutter our emotional landscapes and grounds you first in the nature of the God of Scripture. He then further explores that in which God grounded the first humans--the body, and namely, the brain. With compelling stories of challenge and transformation, Dr. Jennings deftly weaves together a deeply thoughtful theology of the living Word with the complex nature of the organ that our heart calls home. Read this book to know God more fully. Read this book to know your brain more fully. And see how knowing God will change your brain--and your life--in ways you never thought possible." (Curt Thompson, M.D., psychiatrist and author of Anatomy of the Soul)

"With amazing clarity, Dr. Jennings cuts through the many divergent God constructs to expose the powerful impact these differing views have upon our brains and bodies. Not everything taught about God is healthy--read this book and learn how your belief about God is changing you." (Gregory L. Jantz, Ph.D., C.E.D.S., founder, The Center, Inc.)

"What makes this book truly remarkable is the artful way Dr. Jennings combines the latest understanding in brain physiology with practical and compelling real-life stories. Although this book is easy to understand for the layperson, the implications Dr. Jennings makes about the design of the human brain, how it can be damaged and how it can be healed are profound. I don't know of another book that so beautifully describes how our mind can be restored back to the way God originally designed it to be." (Brad Cole, M.D., director of neuroscience education, Loma Linda University School of Medicine)

"Dr. Tim Jennings has asked the troublesome questions about God's character and answered them in a simple and compelling way that clears away the lies about him so that you find yourself falling deeper in love with him. It's a must-read for every inquiring mind. Once you understand the physiology of the brain and how it responds to love versus selfishness, as explained by Dr. Jennings, you will realize that the choice for love is the only one that will renew the mind and result in good mental health." (Kay Kuzma, Ed.D., president of Family Matters Ministry)

"It has been said that our thoughts reflect who we are (Proverbs 23:7). Dr. Jennings challenges us with a synthesis of neurobiology and theology that elaborates on this concept." (Michael Lyles, M.D., Lyles and Crawford Clinical Consulting)

"If you are ready to take your relationship with God to the next level, if you are ready to move closer to the source of all truth, if you are ready for an evidence-based approach to knowing God, this book is for you. Dr. Jennings's patient cases and illustrations make complex ideas simple and easy to understand as he powerfully documents, through brain science, how our beliefs about God change us." (Tim Clinton, president, American Association of Christian Counselors)

    This review, by Dr. Nicholson, has been provided courtesy of Desert Bible Institute www.desertbibleinstitute.com.

    This was the kind of book that I wanted to like more than I did. I firmly hold that science, looked at through the lens of scripture, shows how compatible the two topics really are. There are a number of good books out there that accomplish this; unfortunately, the lack of balance of this book makes the material both difficult to access and theologically questionable. Let me start by saying I really did like sections of the book and I am glad I read it. I liked how the author and I often came to many of the same conclusions, and I have even found myself quoting from the book. The author's style and structure however will keep me from recommending it to many people.

    The first problem with the book is how the author presented the material. A majority of the book is made up of two genre-specific types of writing. The first genre made up of long socio-therapeutic sections that is more reminiscent of self-help than psychology or hard science. These sections often (though not always) come across as feel-good opinion rather than theologically supported positions. The second genre was a heavily technical writing filled with acronyms and medical terminology. While these two genres could be (and occasionally are) blended together effectively, the author seems to write them to the exclusion of each other. This leaves the reader with either a lot of Bible-based opinion or a technical manual. I am sure this second issue is exacerbated by the fact that this is an audio book rather than written text with appropriate charts and diagrams. If Dr. Jennings could re-structure his chapters into a blending of the two topics, this book would not only be more accessible, but also likely seem more applicable.

    The second problem is the knowledge base and bias of the writer. Dr. Jennings is clearly highly knowledgeable in the field of neuropsychiatry. He flies through concepts of the structure of the brain and its effects on individual's psychological makeup and ultimately far-reaching sociological ramifications like a professional running back navigating the field for an 85 yard touchdown. Perhaps it is his extraordinary understanding of the science that makes his comparatively simplistic scriptural understanding seem a little lackluster. While Jennings clearly gives biblical support for his positions, his ideas obviously are not as adept in the theological field as they are in either the neurological or psychological fields.

    Lastly, there is a lack of interconnectivity between to two topics making the work both disjointed and suspect. The juxtapositioning of expertise and passingly knowledgeable knowledge bases is perhaps the most jarring element of this book. It seems logical that if Jennings focused on neuropsychiatry and then used the Bible to support his positions he would seem more credible than he does treating these as two separate but related topics. I am left with the feeling that Jennings is trying to advance a theological position more that a scientific one. Since his expertise is medical and not doctrinal, this seems to be a bit of a red herring. I am reasonably sure this is not what the author intended, but without far more biblical and theological research to support his point, it is how it comes off.

    Ultimately, I liked what Jennings had to say, and it is worth taking the time to read it. The problem is that his scientific skills far exceed his biblical or literary abilities. After a thorough restructuring and some careful theological research this could be one of the best scientifically based Christian books on the market. As it is, the book is fragmented and awkward for most readers. Sean Runnette's reading of this book did help. He seems to have some experience in using intonation and stress to help a reader through the technical language; however, this does not replace the other elements which causes the book to fall short of its full potential.

    Dr. Nicholson reviews academic, Christian living, and fiction books for a variety of publishers in an array of formats. He is never paid for any of his reviews. He writes these strictly as a courtesy to his students at Desert bible Institute and for any other readers that might find his insights valuable.
