Brain Talk Meets God Talk

by Steve Baker

Brain-talk Meets God-talk is a story that begins in Egypt’s Eastern Desert.

In Part 1, it’s the year AD 356, and a wise old Christian fights his last spiritual battle in the darkness of the desert. Then time-leap forward to this decade in the United States and observe a Christian in Iowa fighting clinical depression.

Discover the connection between the men. Get ready for the hope found in a gift that links them, though they are 1,600 years apart in time and thousands of miles distant in culture and country. They both find serenity and climb out of despair.

Brain-talk Meets God-talk is primarily an instruction manual.

Part 2 is the majority of the book with step-by-step teaching of how to find serenity with a new type of Christian meditation that counters depression and anxiety.

Included are 19 illustrations that show HOW to meditate.

There are 18 Daily Focus meditations with Scriptures that focus on the attributes of God, and each Daily Focus can be used twice to give the reader 36 consecutive days to develop new neural paths and override old and erroneous thinking about God.

There are no controversial doctrines nor does it borrow techniques from Eastern religions. There is a clear focus to honor the Trinity as the reader purposefully and safely make changes in the brain to experience neuroplasticity.

Steps 1-5 teach the method.

  • Follow clear step-by-step directions.
  • Merge neurology and theology.
  • Enjoy over 30 days of Daily Focus scripts for meditation.
  • Cultivate serenity for 20 minutes every day to begin a lifetime of health for the brain.

The Frozen

by Jen Porter

In 3019, biological and spiritual purity equal survival.

As Dean of Security, Shaan believes she’s walking the True Path … but is she? She feels unworthy of the prophecy that saved her from the cryogenic Blessing she now imparts on others. Every day Shaan seeks to bury her indelible biological stains under more devoted service to God and Xianova. She and her two enormous canine lieutenants are feared and revered for hunting Impures.

When Shaan is offered the opportunity to beta test the new Transparency of Thought upgrade, she eagerly accepts. Then, while freezing Impures, she comes mind-to-mind with a young boy whose abilities push her to put everything on the line–her family, her faith, and her life–to track down the Truth.
