Overview Barbara Bruce considers Brain Research the third side of a triangle, with Multiple Intelligences and Creative and Critical Thinking comprising the other two sides. She believes Brain Research is the undergirding of all our ability to learn and grow in faith and helps us understand why we do what we do and how we can increase our ability to learn. This information is then used specifically to address the issue of how we know God. The book opens with a brief history and background of education and interest in the brain. Then Bruce offers a chapter on each of eight truths about Brain Research. Finally, she looks in detail at twelve tips to incorporate Brain Research into faith development.
