SELECTED REVIEWS


The Christian Century made The Humanizing Brain the subject of a cover story; Zygon: Journal of Religion and Science published three review articles. ESSSAT News and Utne Reader, among others,  provided significant coverage.

 In a full-page review in The New Yorker, Jerome  Groopman criticized Where God Lives in the Human Brainas not scientific enough, to which the Journal of the  San Francisco Medical Society responded that the book deals with issues of human experience that are not quantifiable. 

"Growing in the Image of God provides a lucid and readable outline of [Albright's] perceptive and challenging thought. Definitely recommended!"
    —ESSSAT News (The European Society for the Study of Science and Theology), April 2003

"NeuroTheology is an excellent, comprehensive, scholarly text. . . . Some of the best, most daring minds in the science of religious experience have chapters included in this book, including Newberg, Persinger, Alper, Albright, d'Aquili, Bruce MacLennan, and Fraser Watts ....an excellent, comprehensive text which deserves a place on the bookshelf of any serious scientist."

On September 17, 2001, The New Yorker devoted an entire page to a discussion of Where God Lives in the Human Brain, as part of a longer article entitled "God and the Brain" by Jerome Groopman. Groopman criticized the work as not scientific enough, but in May 2002, the journal of the San Francisco Medical Society took issue with Groopman, arguing that Albright and Ashbrook dealt with issues of human experience that are not quantifiable.

Zygon also published three review articles of Beginning with the End under the title "What Shall We Make of Wolfhart Pannenberg?" (March 1999).

The Humanizing Brain was the subject of a cover story in The Christian Century (January 1999) and a one-page discussion in Utne Reader, and was reviewed in several other U.S. and two European periodicals. In addition, three review articles of the book were published in Zygon, March 1999, as a section entitled "What Shall We Make of the Human Brain?"
