Resources: S1E7 "Saving Truth - Chapter 6 - Part 1"

Hi Friends,

Every week, we share the resources that we referenced in the most recent episode of the podcast. These could be books, articles, movies, and anything else we mentioned that you might want a link to. If the resource is available for free access online, the link will take you right to it. If not, the link will take you to information on how to get the resource for yourself (for instance, the Amazon link for a book).

If you want to dig deeper, these are some places you can start:

I’m behind in the listening to the podcast, but am part way through reading the book for the 2nd time. It’s so wonderfully written. Thank you for doing these podcasts!

Regarding the notion of the psychology or the mind of a person superceding the biology, every time I get to that part - either reading or listening to you both talking about it - I’m reminded of the long years I suffered with an eating disorder. I was by no means overweight, or even in need of shedding a few pounds. But my mind told me otherwise. Nobody with any care for me would have agreed or told me that I should have surgery to remove some of this weight I was convinced was excess. In fact, no surgeon would have allowed it.
I needed truth to supercede my beliefs in order to be well.
