A SCIENCE-ORIENTED JUSTIFICATION FOR A BELIEF IN CHRISTIANITY
For decades, Christians have had difficulties providing factual evidence that supports what they believe in faith. This situation could soon change, however, as a result of developments in science instead of theology. This book shows how, by changing a single premise undergirding science’s understanding of reality, many of the supernatural aspects of the Bible can be explained. It addresses this claim through a new paradigm that answers:

  • How God, heaven, and eternal spiritual beings could actually exist.
  • The role that Christianity and other world religions play in the spiritual development process.
  • How the Bible’s book of Revelation describes an individual spiritual test of one’s readiness for eternal life – not a battle between good and evil!

This book also describes three frameworks that present the paradigm in greater detail. They cover:

  1. Physical and Non-Physical Dimensions – Describing how humanity’s existence on Earth integrates with the purpose for the existence of the universe.
  2. Spiritual Development – Laying out a path that integrates one’s intellectual understanding of faith with their life experiences and spiritual practices to produce a unique internalized spirituality.
  3. Human Psychic Abilities – Demystifying telepathy, mediumship, channeling, out-of-body experiences, and psychokinesis to illustrate how spiritual beings can use these abilities to communicate, travel, and manipulate objects.

Take a trip beyond scripture to develop insights into our eternal spiritual existence that are internally consistent with Jesus’s parables, the Beatitudes, and the book of Revelation – it is Christianity from a Different Perspective.

About Mark Brooks

I’ve had an interesting life, going from a childhood in a small town nestled in the North Carolina mountains, to working and living Manhattan, to returning to the Carolinas in 2001 to be near family and friends.  My professional background is all about business, beginning with a BS undergraduate degree, progressing to an MBA from NYU while living in Manhattan.  My business experience includes work for large corporations in the pharmaceutical and financial services industries, primarily in IT area.

I attended church throughout my childhood and adult years, but was what you might call a “nominal Christian.”  This changed in 2003, when I started having spiritual experiences.  In an effort to figure out what was happening to me, I began to devour books on world religions, mysticism, monasticism, philosophy, theology and science, to name a few.

I started writing the book’s first edition in 2011 while working a full-time job, and published it in January 2016.  That April, I went to a Science and Consciousness conference to network and to discuss with attendees what I had written.  It was during this time that I realized my book needed to be more science-oriented.  This experience led me to write the second edition, which was published in September 2017.  The important thing to note about this work is that everything contained within the books was self-taught.  I have never taken a formal philosophy, theology or quantum mechanics course.  I believe it was the “lack” of formal training that enabled me to see Christianity and Jesus’s teachings from the “different perspective” that has been captured in my book.
