Product Details



“The joint effort [of two distinguished authors and scholars] is impressive. It manages to bring the experience and energy of both men together in one pithy, provocative package.” —Washington Times 

“[The authors] rightly observe a myriad of religious-based topics and bring up fascinating discoveries of the human brain.”–Sacramento Book Review, San Francisco Book Review

“The authors write here for a lay audience, offering interesting anecdotes, personal experiences, and witty turns of phrase.” —Library Journal

“The authors’ entertainingly loopy writing belies a comprehensive approach to a major fact of the human experience, and their analysis will provoke the religious and the scientific equally: a sure sign that the authors are doing something right.” —SEED magazine

God’s Brain is meant for a lay audience. The authors frequently express their concepts in simple, everyday terms… McGuire and Tiger invoke a wide range of social and ‘hard’ sciences, whether brain chemistry or the study of nonhuman primates. Although the range can make the material somewhat kaleidoscopic at times, they do not let the book become too abstract or academic… God’s Brain is a welcome respite from the frenzied cacophony that too often attends discussion of religion.” –

“The writing style is concise, interesting, and even quite entertaining at times. What could have been a technical tome in evolutionary theory and neurobiology has been transformed into an informative book that even nonscientists can comprehend.” —Perspectives on Science and Christian Faith

“There is much that is coherent… in the story as told by the authors, woven together from a broad spectrum of the social and life sciences, and the ultimate survival of the authors’ brain soothing idea will depend on its testability.”
Human Ethology Bulletin
