What Has Prayer Got to Do with Anything, Anyway?: A Scientific Search for the Truth

Front Cover

What Has Prayer Got To Do With Anything, Anyway? A Scientific Search For The Truth is meant to stimulate thoughts, ideas, and discussions about the value, or lack of value, of prayer in the lives of agnostics, atheists, and people of all faiths. It is not intended to change anyone's belief systems or religious affiliation.

The ideas presented in this book will focus on how we may or may not come to have faith, how our faith--or lack of it--defines our concept of prayer, and the forms of prayer we may choose to employ. What Has Prayer Got To Do With Anything, Anyway? will also stimulate the reader to consider how it may be possible that prayer can inform our lives in order to reach a higher level of social and professional achievement, and overall peace and happiness in life.
