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.

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"

Life-changing

Fascinating and eye-opening, this book gives so much insight into who we are and how we relate to ourselves, to others and to God. It also reveals how God relates to us. Truly had so many "ah ha" moments of revelation.

Phenominal insight!

although it's definitely a heavy book to read, the audiobook format makes it a whole lot easier to understand. the author laces in enough story and illustration so that it is a science book that the regular brain can comprehend and follow. Very well done.

Amazing And Informative

This gave me insight on how to change my paradigm. I must say I was suprised. I thought it was all science but it incorporated the scriptures and took me to another level. Brilliant! I feel like I've had a much needed session. Everything I never knew I've always wanted. I can't wait to read it again. Thankyou once again!

A Must Read

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

Every couple should read this before they marry. Every couple must read this before they have children.

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.
