Details: Product Description Could brain science be the key to spiritual formation? Why does true Christian transformation seem fleeting? And why does church often feel lonely, Christian community shallow, and leaders untrustworthy? For many Christians, the delight of encountering Christ eventually dwindles--and disappointment sets in. Is lasting joy possible? These are some of the questions Michel Hendricks has considered both in his experience as a spiritual formation pastor and in his lifetime as a Christian. He began to find answers when he met Jim Wilder--a neurotheologian. Using brain science, Wilder identified that there are two halves of the church: the rational half and the relational half. And when Christians only embrace the rational half, churches become unhealthy places where transformation doesn't last and narcissistic leaders flourish. In The Other Half of Church, join Michel and Jim's journey as they couple brain science with the Bible to identify how to overcome spiritual stagnation by living a full-brained faith. You'll also learn the four ingredients necessary to develop and maintain a vibrant transformational community where spiritual formation occurs, relationships flourish, and the toxic spread of narcissism is eradicated. From the Back Cover What does brain science have to do with spiritual growth? After a lifetime following Christ and a career as a spiritual formation pastor, Michel Hendricks was disappointed: Why does spiritual transformation seem fleeting? And why do Christian communities often seem shallow? That's when he met neurotheologian Jim Wilder and discovered what's been missing from his church community and spiritual life. The Other Half of Church invites you to join Michel and revolutionize your spiritual growth by understanding how the brain works. Learn the roles of the brain's left and right sides and how they're both critical to experience lasting, full-brain transformation. You'll then learn the four ingredients necessary to develop and maintain a vibrant, transformational community: True joy found through connection and relationships Hesed love of securely attached communities Well-developed group identity based on the character of Christ A culture of uplifting, healthy correction About the Author JIM WILDER (PhD, Clinical Psychology, and M.A. Theology, Fuller Theological Seminary) has been training leaders and counselors for over 27 years on five continents.
