God on the Brain:
What Cognitive Science Does (and Does Not) Tell Us about Faith, Human Nature, and the Divine
"I highly recommend this treasure of learning."
—J. P. Moreland
Advances in modern science have dramatically increased our understanding of the human brain.
While this progress has helped improve many lives, it has also raised many philosophical and theological questions. Researchers are increasingly presenting the brain as comprising the totality of a person. But is this a fair assessment?
Bradley Sickler offers a timely theological, scientific, and philosophical analysis of cognitive science, arguing that the brain is more complex than what can be explained by science alone. Navigating questions about the brain, religion, and science, Sickler guides readers to confidently affirm that the Christian worldview offers the most compelling vision of the true nature of humanity.
