I recently joined the Thomas Nelson blogging book review team, and my latest read is “This is Your Brain on Joy”.
I am not familiar with the author, but the topic is a fascinating one.
As a realist, rather than an optimist, I have always found joy to be one of the most complicated fruits of the Spirit. Because joy is often perceived as a feeling rather than an issue of spirituality or character, we often pass over it when reading Galatians five. I am interested to read the physiological effects of joy, and their corresponding spiritual implications.
The book is en route. I will try to read it quickly, and get the post up as soon as I can. Check out some more info here.
