About the Book
For those that have discarded any version of faith in God or found a religion to lack credibility….
For those that are realists, nerds, or hopeless skeptics, that nevertheless like to read intellectually challenging propositions…
For those that have explored self-help and made progress but are looking to accelerate their personal growth and development…
And for those who are troubled and need some help with finding the strength to change…

Courageously written, Cognitive Faith challenges and disputes some of the central premises of religious faith, including much of religious lore, religious morality, and behavioral dictates. With pointed rebukes for the regrettably common inclination toward irrational thinking, in our personal lives, in our spiritual lives, and in current political and social systems, this book nevertheless blazes a path for a modern-day, rational, cognitive version of empowering faith.

From brontosaurs to bosons, from after-life to daily life, from miracles to meanness, and from Pascal’s Wager to present-day politics. If belief in God is to remain relevant in today’s world a new version of faith is required. We can still believe in God, we just have to do it with our minds engaged and our eyes open.
