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.

NOT JUST ANOTHER RELIGIOUS BOOK!

I really enjoyed this book and it’s message. The GOOD news about God’s non arbitrary nature is truly attractive! And as I try not to put much wight on opinion.. it’s grounded in the Bible, and harmonizes with nature and real life as God designed it.
A nice blend of real life stories, science and scripture makes for an easy and attention holding listen, at least for me. The reader is very pleasant and does a good job entering into the script.

Thank you Tim Jennings for taking the time to hammer out the thoughts and insights in this book. I hope many more people get their hands (and ears :) on it!

truly believe everyone should read this book

I love this book. This book States what's so much of us need to know so that we can understand the motivation behind why we do things. It opens us up to a whole different level of closeness with God and understanding his plan for our life. It's also extremely accurate and with all the biological neuropsych
