Author Lipton is a former medical school professor and research scientist. His experiments, and those of other leading-edge scientists, have examined in great detail the processes by which cells receive information. The implications of this research radically change our understanding of life. It shows that genes and DNA do not control our biology; that instead DNA is controlled by signals from outside the cell, including the energetic messages emanating from our positive and negative thoughts. Dr. Lipton's profoundly hopeful synthesis of the latest and best research in cell biology and quantum physics is being hailed as a breakthrough, showing that our bodies can be changed as we retrain our thinking.--From publisher description.… (mer)

2020-06-14 Available for $2, but Several of the reviews identified it as pseudoscience, so I'll pass.

In the Context of Eternity is a lively and readable one-volume history of the Christian Church, which challenges the view that ancient history came to an end in the fifth century and that nothing of significance then happened until the Renaissance. It explains how an extraordinary intermingling of the Roman Empire, Christianity, and Barbarism produced the most dynamic society the world has ever known, and how the modern world emerged from the interaction of Christianity and Barbarism on the ruins of Rome. There is a prologue explaining the background to the world out of which Christianity developed and an epilogue commenting on the state of the Christian Church at the beginning of the third millennium. The period of two thousand years in between is divided into six sections, each of which is given the same number of pages and each of which is divided into three chapters. Thus, the period from the 330s to the 660s, on ""Christendom and the Roman Empire,"" is given the same attention as the period on ""The Era of Reform,"" from the 1330s to the 1660s. Chapter 18 is an account of the development of Christianity in the United States of America. ""This highly perceptive book is obviously the product of decades of reading and independent reflection on the whole sweep of Christian history. It is always clear, sympathetic, informative, and fair-minded, and it will appeal to a very wide readership."" --Henry Mayr-Harting, Emeritus Regius Professor of Ecclesiastical History, University of Oxford ""It is truly remarkable and exceptionally clearly and attractively written."" --Derek Beales, Professor of History, University of Cambridge ""The book is a delight, a tour de force. . . . I wish I had a copy when I was a young seminarian."" --Michael Brockie, Roman Catholic Canon Lawyer, Provost of the House of Canons of the Archdiocese of Westminster ""I will make use of it in my lectures, because the way the faith developed is not always sufficiently understood by many theologians and priests."" --Jaako Rusama, Professor of Theology, University of Helsinki ""I was seduced by the fluency of the writing and the freshness of the approach."" --Michael Turnbull, Former Anglican Bishop of Durham David Arnold was born in England, and after school and two years in the army was a scholar of Pembroke College, Oxford, where he read history. He has been headmaster of a grammar school and principal of a college and is a Fellow of the English Historical Association

As I come to review this book I am wondering what made by buy it in the first place? Normally, I'm fairly careful about the books I buy and I check the contents, some of the other reviewer comments (and weigh up how much weight I should give to them). But in this case, I'm relieved to report that I only paid $2 for this book at some second hand bookstall for charity. It has a sticker on the dust jacket proclaiming it as a "Best Book, 2006 awards...and around the rim of the seal are the words "Best science book". I must check this out further because I can't believe it. It is a most unscientific book. My initial attraction was due to the title. "The Biology of Belief". I have long been interested in the philosophy of values and one of the issues I came up against was the difference between belief and values. Most writers never bothered with trying to define what they meant by "belief"...And Bruce Lipton is no exception. We all think we know what a belief is until one is asked to define it ..and then it becomes a bit more complicated. The "Biology" part of the title looked to me like I was going to learn about the neurochemistry of the brain and how it caused or interacted with beliefs. Perhaps how beliefs could be changed by changing the chemistry of the brain. Alas, I was to be disappointed. Lipton spends a good deal of the first part of the book explaining his personal journey and his eureka moment when he realised that the cell membrane played a large role in biological outcomes. Now this may be true but most of the book relates to Lipton's personal journey and culminates in a sales pitch to embrace PSYCH-K...."making use of left brain/right brain integration techniques effect swift and long lasting changes". We are even referred to a web site for further information. Somewhere along the long journey of Lipton's intellectual development we have morphed from more straightforward descriptions of the cell membrane to Lipton's conversion to a "spiritual scientist". To my mind that is a contradiction in terms. The book certainly did not deliver what the title promised to me. I would not recommend this book. Oh, and by the way, I checked out the publishers, Hay House USA and found that they publish widely across the fields of; "Oracle Cards", "Past Life Regression", "Crystals", "Shamanism" and "Energy Healing"....to name but a few. Now maybe these have their place ...but to my mind they are not leading contenders for peer reviewed science or even for the scientific method. Bottom line.....don't waste your time ...or money...even if you pick it up for $2 at a book sale like I did. ( )

I'm not sure what to make of this book really. I got it from a bibliography from all things of a book about trading. So I was thinking I would get something on spiritualism or motivation/self improvement. Something along those lines. The book mostly focused on fairly high level biology of cell behavior. What was kind of funny is he inferred he did not want to get too technical being a biology professor then proceeded to spend about three-fourths of the book talking about technical biology matters. For me anyway. The tie in from biology to belief was vague. There were nuggets of interesting things he pointed out about learning and being programmed that refuted the hard wired concepts of genetics. At the very conclusion he got into some of the things I was anticipating in the book but also gave what I construed as the typical sermon of new age principles relating to the environment and living in harmony with nature. I can hardly endorse the book due to the far flung nature of the things he gets into but for some it might just be their cup of tea.

Lipton is a cell biologist whose “study of cells turned [him] into a spiritual person.” This is a highly readable science book, defining how beliefs control behavior and gene activity, and consequently the unfolding of our lives. It’s a fun learning tool that doesn’t dig too deeply, with an uplifting message.

Belief truly is biological. One interesting topic that Lipton addresses is the placebo effect. It “is quickly glossed over in medical schools so that students can get to the real tools of modern medicine like drugs and surgery. This is a giant mistake. The placebo affect should be a major topic of study in medical school.” Of course, Lipton is a realist; he realizes placebo pills are a threat to the pharmaceutical industry, as well as the scalpel holders, and Lipton is not one to mince words.

It should be pointed out that this is no dry textbook; it borders in places on metaphysical and holistic speculation. But the book is so darn fun. In this light, do not ignore the epilogue; it’s the best part of the book, where Lipton deals with speculative conclusions regarding our “me-ness” and the power of the mind that transformed him into a bubbly, optimistic believer. His “aha” moment was the realization that every protein in our bodies is a physical/electromagnetic complement to something in the environment … that environment being the universe, or to many, God. As we are inextricably intertwined with the divine, survival of the fittest turns out to mean survival of the most loving. ( )
