In 1976, Julian Jaynes proposed that the language of poetry and prophecy originated in the right, "god-side" of the brain. Current neuroscientific evidence confirms the role of the right hemisphere in poetry, a sensed presence, and paranormal claims as well as in mental imbalance. Left-hemispheric dominance for language is the norm. An atypically enhanced right hemisphere, whether attained through genetic predisposition, left-hemispheric damage, epilepsy, childhood or later traumas, can create hypersensitivities along with special skills. Dissociative "Others" may arise unbidden or be coaxed out through occult practices. Based on nearly twenty years of scientific and literary research, this book enters the atypical minds of poetic geniuses - Blake, Keats, Hugo, Rilke, Yeats, Merrill, Plath and Hughes - by way of the visible signs in their lives, beliefs, and shared practices.

African American women have commonly been portrayed as "pillars" of their communities—resilient mothers, sisters, wives, and grandmothers who remain steadfast in the face of all adversities. While these portrayals imply that African American women have few psychological problems, the scientific literature and demographic data present a different picture. They reveal that African American women are at increased risk for psychological distress because of factors that disproportionately affect them, including lower incomes, greater poverty and unemployment, unmarried motherhood, racism, and poor physical health. Yet at the same time, rates of mental illness are low. This invaluable book is the first comprehensive examination of the contradictions between the strengths and vulnerabilities of this population. Using the contexts of race, gender, and social class, In and Out of Our Right Minds challenges the traditional notions of mental health and mental illness as they apply to African American women.

I have stressed in this book, from a spiritual and practical standpoint, how one should utilize the mind in ways for which God created it. Much of the content can be clarified or substantiated with Biblical quotes. Therefore, girth the loins of your mind. Be prayerful with hope as you reach for the Creator to benefit your mind. Allow Him to be your mind regulator. He understand the mechanisms of each of His creation. He is the perfect Physician and Teacher of the mind. It is said that the mind is Satans playground. Yes, it is if we allow him to enter and lodge there. We need to build a wall of faith equipped with a closed door around the mind to prevent his entry. In doing so, we can more readily keep our minds eye attentive, its ears opened, and have an alertness that protects us from evil strongholds, even those of our own flesh. Listen to your spirit, heart and conscience. Allow your mind to be still and listen to the positive voices that alert you to the things of God, being fortified with strength on high. This will help you to avoid confusion, being overwhelmed, being lost and will bring focus. Strong willpower is needed and will help pull you up towards God, and not down to where abnormalities plague the mind. I impart to you this advice, from a place of experience, from a place of concern and from a place of love, rooted in God.

Do you sometimes feel you have to check your intellect at the church door, leaving reason behind to embrace the Christian faith? Do you hunger for a “full gospel” that includes the mind as well as heart and Spirit? Full Gospel, Fractured Minds? challenges charismatic and Pentecostal believers to discover the power of a well-maintained mind—a mind on fire—to match a heart on fire and to create a life that operates within the full counsel of God . Nañez shows how human reason helps us understand and interpret God’s Word as well as defend the gospel. He shows what the Bible teaches about the mind, and explores the backgrounds of nineteenth-century and modern culture, anti-intellectualism, Pentecostal history and beliefs, and popular misconceptions about human intellect in relation to the Christian faith. Full Gospel, Fractured Minds? helps men and women practice a Christian faith that reflects the whole person and the full gospel. “Rick Nañez calls Pentecostals and charismatics to seek a balance between mind and Spirit. This book will stir you to seek all that God has for you.” —From the Foreword by Stanley M. Horton, PhD
