“A nicely put-together synthesis of those elements which can lead us
to happiness. ... Who can refuse it? Who does not need it?”
Gerald Kreyche, Ph.D.
Emeritus Distinguished Professor of Philosophy
De Paul University
A lifetime of study and
34 years in the writing has resulted in
this seminal book—an inspiring integration of Christian faith
and cognitive sciences, derived from the words of Christ and
many of His most holy and erudite followers, integrated
seamlessly with 21st century psychology and neurology.
Introduces six new paradigms; 1) one of the spiritual Soul, ascribed
with Needs and Faculties which, integrated with those of the body
and a new paradigm of the brain—How the Brain Works, Coherently!
2) yields a new model of the human being and schools of Christian
psychology and neuropsychology; 3) a clarification
of the esoteric
‘spiritual exercises’ that have led Christian Saints and saintly
Christians into the ‘abundant life' in the Kingdom of God—an
ever-growing love and knowledge of the living God,
a life the
Soul Knows to be eternal and a sure foretaste of heaven.
For the first time identifies the neural system and its ‘programs’
which competes with our wlll in motivation and behavior,
resolving the mind/brain/behavior enigma.
