              Two distinguished authors, renowned anthropologist Lionel Tiger and pioneering neuroscientist Michael McGuire, elucidate the perennial questions about religion: What is its purpose? How did it arise? What is its source? Why does every known culture have some form of it? Their ans...wer is deceptively simple, yet at the same time highly complex: The brain creates religion and its varied concepts of God, and then in turn feeds on its creation to satisfy innate neurological and associated social needs. Brain science reveals that humans and other primates alike are afflicted by unavoidable sources of stress that the authors describe as -brainpain.- To cope with this affliction people seek to -brainsoothe.- We humans use religion and its social structures to induce brainsoothing as a relief for innate anxiety. How we do this is the subject of this groundbreaking book. In a concise, lively, accessible, and witty style, the authors combine zoom-lens vignettes of religious practices with discussions of the latest research on religion's neurological effects on the brain. Among other topics, they consider religion's role in providing positive socialization, its seeming obsession with regulating sex, the common biological scaffolding between nonhuman primates and humans and how this affects religion, and evidence that the palliative effects of religion on brain chemistry are not matched by nonreligious remedies. This fascinating book provides key insights into the complexities of our brain and the role of religion, perhaps its most remarkable creation.

              Politics - it's a place for shiny people with ugly souls. As a journalist Jack thought he'd met every shade of nutter, narcissist and bully to be found. But then he took a job in politics and discovered he'd only scratched the surface. Even better, it's Jack's job to maintain the... pretence that all is normal, that our political masters have everyone's best interests at heart, that politics is not just a collection of attention-seeking egomaniacs looking for somewhere to park their character defects. Yes, Jack is a political spin doctor. His new boss, Ray Sloan, is terrifying - and that's on his good days - and his former friends in the media regard him as a turncoat and a traitor. Elections, budgets and blackmail - it's all part of the bizarre world Jack now finds himself in.If you are looking for a tale to reaffirm your faith in democracy, this probably isn't the one.

              Athletes dont suit up just to sit on the sidelines while others play the game, yet week after week, Christians suit up at church just to watch others perform. Do you find yourself sitting on this proverbial bench, off to the side while others share the gospel? Do you want to get ...into the game but think that its better left to professionals or to people with more experience? Evangelism on the Go! shows you that the greatest discovery you can ever make in your spiritual life is how God wants to use you to reach other people, and it will give you insights into how you can become a powerful witness for Christ. Author and pastor Michael McGuire provides both spiritual and practical steps you can take to search for opportunities to tell others about Christ, and by developing a sensitivity to the Holy Spirits guidance, you too can have the joy of seeing others commit their lives to becoming followers of Christ. You do not have to become a professional minister before God can use you to share the gospel, and seeing others come to Christ is one of the most exciting parts of the Christian life. So dont let fear bench you and keep you out of the game. If you want to overcome fear and grow in your faith, you must give it away.
