037 - Mystically Wired

Mystically Wired by Ken Wilson is an excellent book on prayer. More often than not books on prayer simply push the reader to just pray more. Block off more time, make sure you go to a certain type of place, or try to pray more often are normal “go-get-em” pep talks that most books give. However, Wilson’s book teaches about prayer. His book walks the reader through his journey in pray and how he grew dissatisfied with the traditional “do more” prayer books. Wilson challenges his readers to really connect with God through prayer rather than simply sticking through it. Wilson breaks down the human brain and what prayer and meditation does in the brain and the physical benefits for the believer.

The book was excellent. The only negative is that often some of the scientific brain study information was a little difficult to comprehend. The idea that pray has a physical impact on the brain is really intriguing, but I would have expected the information to be presented so that anyone reading could grasp the concept. I love the practical suggestions Wilson includes at the end of the book. The practical suggestions and the bibliography are worth the price of the book. Make sure to pick this book up.

Also, I’m supposed to let you know that I was given a free review copy of the book, but that has nothing to do with whether or not I liked it.
