This is the first major response to the new challenge of neuroscience to religion.

There have been limited responses from a purely Christian point of view, but this takes account of eastern as well as western forms of religious experience.

It challenges the prevailing naturalistic assumption of our culture, including the idea that the mind is either identical with or a temporary by-product of brain activity.

It also discusses religion as institutions and religion as inner experience of the Transcendent, and suggests a form of spirituality for today.
