For decades, Christians have had difficulties providing tangible evidence to support what they believe in faith. In response to that challenge, this book lays out a justification for the existence of Christianity, showing how it and other world religions promote humanity’s spiritual development. It does this without the use of religious doctrine, basing it instead on spirituality. This book shows how:

  • The purpose for humanity’s existence on earth is linked to the purpose for the existence of the universe.
  • Humans are already eternal beings, and death does not exist.
  • The Bible’s book of Revelation describes an individual test of one’s spiritual maturity – not a battle between good and evil.

It also outlines frameworks that:
1. Spiritual Development – Integrate one’s intellectual understanding of faith with one’s life experiences and spiritual practice to produce a unique, internalized spirituality.
2. Non-Physical Dimensions – Consolidate information from multiple sources to create a
consistent view of the non-physical world.
3. Human Psychic Abilities – Show that paranormal abilities are really spiritual abilities – how beings communicate, travel, and manipulate objects.
4. Eternal Cycles – Provides bibliographic references to support illustrations proposing
that matter and consciousness go through never-ending iterative cycles of material and
spiritual existence.

Take a trip beyond scripture to develop insights into our eternal spiritual existence.
This is Christianity from a Spiritual 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.
