Reviews

If Psalm 139 were published as a contemporary book, it might look a lot like Rob Moll's What Your Body Knows About God. Channeling the psalmist's wonder at having been 'woven together in the depths of the earth, ' Moll, a CT editor at large, wonders at the marvel of humanity: its dynamic blend of body, mind, soul and spirit. Christians don't worship God, serve their neighbors and connect with other people merely because of external rules; such impulses are inscribed in our DNA. . . . Moll offers realistic and inspiring examples of what it looks like to walk this path, crookedness and all. Anyone who has struggled to pay attention in prayer can resonate with his account of sitting against the wall in his children's bedroom after they are tucked in bed, praying in the quiet darkness, sometimes finding focus, other times wander. The psalmist rejoices 'because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful' (139:14). With smart, tender and authentic prose, What Your Body Knows About God beautifully sings this in a 21st century key.

--Jenell Williams Paris, Christianity Today, 5-Star Review, November 2014

In What Your Body Knows About God, Moll leads the reader on a tour through cutting-edge science about brains and bodies, bodies that are not a bit less fearfully and wonderfully made even if little about them remains, as the psalmist said, a 'secret place.' . . . [I]t is revelatory to learn that science emphatically does not suggest that selfishness, social isolation and godlessness define the 'natural' human condition. Mirror neurons and mimicry that happens below the level of consciousness--as when you slip into imitating the speech and mannerisms of your conversation partner without realizing it--suggest that there's something in us that wants to connect deeply with others.

--Rachel Marie Stone, Books Culture, November/December 2014

Reading this book left me amazed, and the rich food for thought fueled a desire to discuss it with others and proclaim this great and wonderful truth: You and I are wired to know the One who created us.

--Greg Bowman, Baptist Standard, May 25, 2015
