It suggests answers as to how and why religion became so prominent in human societies. However, in this book Newberg aims at bringing forward what empirical, scientific studies are contributing to the discussions. As Newberg had articulated in an earlier book, one of the goals of neurotheology in its study of religious experience is to expand the current understanding of the human mind and brain and of how religious or spiritual.

religious and scientific perspectives, by the end of the book it is clear that the real engine of neurotheology is brain science.
