Is spiritual experience real or a delusion? Are there realities that we can experience but not easily measure? Does your consciousness depend entirely on your brain, or does it extend beyond? In Fingerprints of God, award-winning journalist Barbara Bradley Hagerty delves into the discoveries science is making about how faith and spirituality affect us physically and emotionally as it attempts to understand whether the ineffable place beyond this world can be rationally -- even scientifically -- explained. Hagerty interviews some of the world's top scientists to describe what their groundbreaking research reveals about out human spiritual experience. From analyses of the brain functions of Buddhist monks and Carmelite nuns, to the possibilities of healing the sick through directed prayer, to what near-death experiences illuminate about the afterlife, Hagerty reaches beyond what we think we know to understand what happens to us when we believe in a higher power. An insightful examination of what science is learning about how and why we believe, Fingerprints of God is also a moving story of one person's search for a communion with a higher power and what she discovered on that journey.

Hagerty attempts to answer the question, "Is this all there is?" Book is about spiritual experiences not religion. She does extensive research and many interviews of scientists, mystics, near death experience survivors, believers, scholars, etc. In the end you will have to decide for yourself.
