Abstract:

"According to a 2000 Newsweek poll, 94 percent of us believe in the existence of God. That leaves a very small percentage of people who don't. Yet they include vocal intellectuals who are quick to reject anything that can't be perceived solely with the five physical senses and to demean anyone who is religious or spiritual." "Dr. Michael Guillen shares his remarkable story as someone from both camps - one intensely intellectual, the other intensely religious. One a world of logic and IQ, or "Intelligence Quotient, " The other a world of faith and what he calls SQ, or "Spiritual Quotient, " Explains Guillen: SQ is "a measure of our ability to perceive the subtler, non-physical aspects of reality; to solve problems and acquire conviction spiritually."" "Can a Smart Person Believe in God? is not intended to win anyone over to either camp, writes Guillen, but "to encourage you to recognize your capacity for IQ and SQ... to help you see the importance of developing not one at the expense of the other; but both at once.""--BOOK JACKET.
