"Anatomy of the Soul"

Special guest Curt Thompson, M.D., psychiatrist and author of Anatomy of the Soul, discusses new discoveries in neuroscience – discoveries that reveal how our interactions with each other help shape our brains and relationships in ways that either point to our deepest desires to be joyful, courageous, kind, and secure, or to negative, harmful qualities.

Dr. Thompson talks about how these discoveries reflect what we already know from Scripture – that God desires for us a better life than what we could plan for ourselves. By paying attention to how our brains and relationships shape each other, we create space for God to work.
