A look at the connections between religious belief, physical health, and psychological well-being. What are the benefits of being a spiritual person? This is the question that James W. Jones explores in his newest book, The Mirror of God. Jones contends that true religious belief is not a passive process and that one must work hard towards believing in God through acts such as prayer, meditation, and communal worship. He explores the boundaries between psychotherapy and religious practice, looks at what Christians might learn from Buddhists, and shows how faith affects the body and mind. Jones is a psychologist as well as a professor of religion and, ultimately, he provides a blueprint for worship that's smart, effective, and grounded in the real lives we all live.
