Prayer and Neuroscience - Some Current Resources

One of my former Payne Theological Seminary students asked me for resources referring to praying and brain studies. Here's my response.

Neuroscientist Andrew Newberg (U of Pennsylvania) is doing major research in this area. See his books here -

U of Montreal neuroscientist Mario Beauregaard is working in the area of spirituality and neuroscience -

And, I recently read The Psychology of Prayer: A Scientific Approach - esp. chs. 6 and 7.

Finally, New Testament scholar Joel Green is working in the area of neuroscience - see his excellent book Body, Soul, and Human Life.
