At the beginning of the twentieth century psychologists discovered ways and means to measure intelligence that developed into an obsession with IQ. In the mid 1990's, Daniel Goleman popularised research into emotional intelligence, EQ, pointing out that EQ is a basic requirement for the appropriate use of IQ. In this century, there is enough collective evidence from psychology, neurology, anthropology and cognitive science to show us that there is a third 'Q', 'SQ' or Spiritual Intelligence. SQ is uniquely human and, the authors argue, the most fundamental intelligence. SQ is what we use to develop our longing and capacity for meaning, vision and value. It allows us to dream and to strive. It underlies the things we believe in, and the role our beliefs and values play in the actions that we take and the way we shape our lives.

According to the philosopher Danah Zohar (who coined the idea of spiritual intelligence), we live in a 'spiritually dumb' culture, alienated from each other, too busy to take time to reflect, and trying desperately to juggle the myriad pulls and pushes of life without cracking up. How can we find meaning from meaninglessness, hope from despair, reconciliation from alienation and wholeness from fragmentation? In this book, Brian Draper asks how ordinary people, whether religious or not, can nudge themselves (or be gently nudged) to live on a daily basis with increasing integrity, wholeness and well-being - to become more spiritually intelligent. The book is split into 4 main sections: 'awakening', 'seeing your world afresh', 'living the change' and 'passing it on'. The narrative style is contemplative, reflective and engaging.

Western culture has long prized the Intelligence Quotient (IQ) as a benchmark of a person's mental abilities. And since the mid-nineties we have known of other forms of intelligence such as emotional and social. Now, prolific author, former pastor, and leadership development specialist Alan E. Nelson introduces "spiritual intelligence"--a person's ability to assimilate faith into everyday life. Churches and individuals are coming to the conclusion that far too many people are active in church their entire lives but never mature, going directly from Pampers to Depends. How can this be? In Spiritual Intelligence, Nelson will help readers take charge of their spiritual growth by helping them incorporate methods Jesus used in teaching his disciples. Readers will assess their own spiritual maturity and learn what steps to take next in their journey of discipleship.

Our brains are getting wired differently in the world of digital technology, information revolution, and in the inter-cultural world of global society. Think of the new vocabulary: Global brain, collective intelligence, global village, and cyberspace. That should tell us something about the neural rewiring that is taking place inside of our brains, whether or not we are aware of it. The fact that the human brain changes throughout a person's life in response to intellectual stimulation, physical exercise, exposure to new cultural environments, learning opportunities, and challenges is a revolutionary discovery. Till twenty years ago neuroscientists believed in the conventional theory that the brain's ability at making new neural connections stopped before a child entered adolescence. That is the old dogma. There is a "Second Copernican Revolution" taking place inside of our brains, writes the author, quoting Carl Zimmer. Some experts are suggesting that we are already living in what Richard Restack calls the "neurosociety." Ray Kurzweil, the futurist, is predicting that by 2045 A.D., human beings will be living in an era of "singularity," when non biological machines invented by human brains and human ingenuity are going to outsmart human intelligence billions of times. What is going to be the fate of the human spirit, human spirituality, the feeling of connection to a force and power that is greater than us (God), our ability to use spiritual imagination and our intelligence? Are we progressively moving away from religion and community-based spirituality into the "spirituality of different strokes for different folks?" In his groundbreaking book, Spiritual Intelligence and The Neuroplastic Brain: A Contextual Interpretation of Modern History, Charles W. Mark takes the reader on a journey through modern history and shows the glimpse of what is to come. http: //www.spirituality-intelligence.com

Have you ever thought about how long it took Satan to influence the first Adam, to turn on God in rebellion, and to deceive Eve in the paradise of God? The age of innocence was lost in an instant after the taking of the forbidden fruit which was “to make one as God” and “to make one wise” knowing the difference between “good and evil”. On that day, mankind’s intellect fell from its spiritual understanding and eternal potential and has been falling ever since, even as worldly wisdom without the knowledge of the Holy Ones has increased. The intellect that was made to be illumined by the Spirit, now in its present fallen state, produces chaos, confusion, and every evil known to man. God’s covering, lost in the garden, can only be restored through genuine repentance and faith in the finished work of Calvary: the sacrifice of the Blood of the Lamb, slain before the foundations of the earth were laid. Spiritual Intelligence and Spiritual Common Sense is based in the unadulterated Word. Evidence of man's delusion of superior intellect without the knowledge of the Holy is the deepest deception. God is not just a god of love, but of justice and righteousness with mercy, because of Christ. He is the God who judges sin, which is moral corruption in any manifested form and under any pretense of the defiant self-will.
