THE SPIRITUAL BRAIN A Neuroscientist's Case for the Existence of the Soul

by | Read by Patrick Lawlor

Spirituality • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

Why do some people feel God's presence, but others don't? Could it have something to do with our genes or the structure of our brains? The authors, a professor at the University of Montreal and a journalist, make a scholarly case for God by pointing out phenomena that cannot be explained by science, such as near-death experiences, premonitions, and the power of prayer. The material is heady, but narrator Patrick Lawlor keeps the experience pleasant with an enthusiastic tone that is appropriately tinged with wonder. Lawlor's voice occasionally takes on a mocking tone as Beauregard acerbically dismisses opposing views. This audiobook requires a lot of the listener but is worth the effort.
