Do you want to improve your relationships and experience lasting personal change? Join Curt Thompson, MD, on an amazing journey to discover the surprising pathways for transformation hidden inside your own mind.

Integrating new findings in neuroscience and attachment with Christian spirituality, Dr. Thompson reveals how it is possible to rewire your mind, altering your brain patterns and literally making you more like the person God intended you to be. Explaining discoveries about the brain in layman's terms, he shows how you can be mentally transformed through spiritual practices, interaction with scripture, and connections with other people. He also provides practical exercises to help you experience healing in areas where you've been struggling.

Insightful and challenging, Anatomy of the Soul illustrates how learning about one of God's most miraculous creations - your brain - can enrich your life, your relationships, and your impact on the world around you.

Definetly a must read!

Definetly a must read! And "act upon" book, which is a lot rarer to find, it leaves you with more after than just "oh what a good book" it leaves you with hope and hopefully intent for more, and by more I mean in a sense -that is still new to me as well- but a life more meaningful and more "known"

Excellent comprehensive overview

If you could sum up Anatomy of the Soul in three words, what would they be?

This book Unites many aspects of life from faith and sirituality to neuroscience I never ever thought I would see this done...ever. And it is perfect,...could not be better.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Anatomy of the Soul?

Unification of psychology especially Dr Daniel Seigle whose books on mindfulness are well embraced by many communities. To see this incorporated in a faith based book gives me true hope for the needed synthesis between science and our spiritual life as a christian
Bravo!

What about Sean Pratt’s performance did you like?

I love Sean Pratt's work I feel like he is an old friend ,,,and was convinced to buy this book because he narrated it.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The entire book is truly noteworthy.

Any additional comments?

This is a unique book. A sign that there is hope that brain science and one's faith and spiritual life are one unity.

This book is for christians

Not enough science talk, too much talk about Jesus... would have been able to digest it better If he was talking about a greater power and didn't recite scripture so much.

Great insight

Very good book but technical and a bit hard to grasp some concepts if you are not in the medical field.

My dad's face is now shining

I revisited a childhood memory in which my father shamed of me while trying to teach me to swim. This time I introduced a picture of God appearing in a very friendly shining face toward my father, then saying the words of recommended in this book: "you are my son home I love. I am so pleased to have you on the earth."The result I saw unfold was my father was turned into his own shining face. The incident with me is no i soon. In I will in the future I will find this new narrative much more interesting to visit than the old one. My brain will create new neural networks that have me renewed transformtransformed by the renewing of my mind.

Reader too dramatic

I'd liked book but readers cadence was too slow, breathy and dramatic. It was very useful to have this book in audio to replay portions for clarity.
